EDIT: Jane's Favourites
As a special addition to this month's Hot List our fabulous co-founder, Jane Rockett, has compiled her top 5 NEW favourite RSG pieces that she loves this November...
"I love the texture of this table, it is sandblasted to accentuate the grain of the wood in a very subtle way. Very beautiful indeed."
"We have just launched a new collection of Tin Tiles which are just so super cool but also very versatile. The Filigree is my favourite as it such a pretty design, but the stars are a close second. You can use Tin Tiles as a ceiling cover, backsplash, wall coverings, bed head ...the uses are endless.  Easily painted to in both colours and metallic paints, the creative opportunities are endless."
"Anyone who knows me is aware of my chopping board obsession and these are my new favourite!  The bowl is very lovely too!"  
"Available in either Rose Pink or Rich Green, this dining chair is the ultimate in cool glamour and comfort. I simply can't decide which colour is my favourite."

5.Diving Man Wall Hook - Brass

"I am a great believer that even the most practical items can be fun and beautiful and so these coat hooks are a firm favourite.  I would love to have a line of them by my front door."
