Like cacti, pink flamingos are all the rage in homewares at the moment. They first had their heyday back in the 1950s with Miami and California mid-century modern – but they’ve flown back into favour!
Kitsch and playful, quirky and vintage or practical and colourful there’s a flamingo-themed item out there that will suit your taste, interior and pocket.
- Colours charcoal & pink flamingo mica wallpaper: £14, B&Q
- SUNNYLIFE flamingo watering can: £14, Selfridges
- Meiko pink flamingo – pink metal: £71, La Redoute

We love vintage Scandinavian pottery chez H is for Home. We buy, sell & collect manufacturers such as Figgjo Flint, Arabia, Gustavsberg and Nymølle; and designers like Stig Lindberg, Lisa Larson, Bjørn Wiinblad and Kaj Franck.
This lovely little dish is Stavangerflint Flamingo designed by Inger Waage in the 1950s. It’s being sold by and in support of Hospice of St Francis* currently listed with a ‘buy it now’ price of £24.99 and would make a lovely addition to someone’s Scandinavian pottery collection!
*The Hospice aims to bring peace, comfort and dignity to patients and families facing the crisis of serious illness. We offer assessment and skilled clinical care, respite breaks, home support, day care and bereavement support. Care is free of charge and a flexible and individual approach is made.
