As is so often the case, this selection starts with something from the magnificent Present and Correct. These beautiful button push pins will fasten notes, love letters and shopping lists to your board in the prettiest possible way. They're £14 for the set.
For a less twee twist on the look, how about Laura Egbi's Simple Treasures cushion available at the Graduate Collection for £40. You can only tell it's made up of hundreds of buttons when you peer closely. As for the hot pink colour? Well, it certainly lives up to the phrase 'Bright as a Button'.
