You may already be familiar with the tidal wave of golden pineapples which flooded into our homes and lives over recent years.

Catch a glimmer of that tropical trip you’d like to take in the patina of a brass pineapple instead. All jokes aside, here is a selection of some flamboyant pineapple finds we just couldn’t keep to ourselves.
