The idea of a spring clean is all well and good – but sometimes it feels particularly satisfying to pair this annual ritual with a thorough decluttering spree. A tidy home means a tidy mind, after all; often by getting your surroundings in order, your thoughts will follow. To give you a helping hand, Monocle has put together a keen selection of impeccably designed household objects to make your dreams of orderliness a reality.
