The yachting world has provided us with considerable inspiration over the years–from classical and universal red and white, blue and white stripes, to the Guernsey sweater, to the concept and idea of sails and to really clever fittings:

* Yachting catches and handles designed to manage small, well organised, contained spaces can be extremely useful for solving interior conundrums.
