Woolly for you

The Carina Fairisle Pullover is just the thing to see wool-loving menfolk into the new season. The superior granddad jumper from upmarket sportswear label Musto – started up by former Olympic sailing champions Keith Musto and Tony Morgan – is part of a heart-warming new collection, with lovely things for him and her. £90, musto.com

Super, natural

Another Language is a delicate study in monochrome, focusing on science and nature in all its glorious guises – a beautifully-presented coffee-table book from the 28-year-old Swedish photographer Marten Lange. £25, http://mackbooks.co.uk/books/41-Another-Language.html

Hear and now

A seriously glam new range of headphones from Molami will help you look cool no matter how dubious your listening habits. Tune in with a choice of glitzy leather and gold 'cans' in a range of sizes and styles from Swedish industrial designer Maria von Euler. Sounds good to us. From £125, molami.com

Automatic art

This year's Merge festival spreads its brush far and wide in a month-long programme of arts and music events – not least Patrick Tresset's marvellous Six Robots (all named Paul) who will be sketching portraits at Bankside, and a concert orchestrated by Fiona Banner performed in a tiny Welsh chapel. Until 21 October, mergefestival.co.uk

Padded sells

Pretty up your sofa with one of the unabashedly bright Aztec-print cushions from textile queen Suki Cheema. There are so many fabulous designs to choose from. Prices on request; sukicheema.com

Open wide

The Old Bengal Warehouse finally opens its doors this weekend – a mouth-watering new venture from D&D sees the enormous 18th-century warehouse near Bishopsgate transformed into a super-swish fish market, wine shop, Conran-designed grill restaurant (where hefty steaks and lobster are on the menu) and cocktail bar.
