    Q & A Our resident interiors expertRachel Leedham is on hand to answer all your decorating queries

    HOW TO HANG A PLATE I have two lovely spongeware plates (a circular one, Dia30cm and an oval design, H30 x W40cm) that I would like to display on the wall. But I’ve found that if I use wire plate hangers, the plates lean out, instead of lying ush against the surface. Do you have any suggestions?

    SONIA WHITE, BUCKINGHAMSHIRE

    Adhesive discs by Disc Plate Hangers (discplatehangers. net) are used by interior designers, stylists and homeowners around the world to ensure that plates lie at against the wall without any visible xings. You simply need to clean the back of the plate and then wet the adhesive side of the disc, rubbing it with your nger to activate the glue. Once tacky, apply the disc to the plate (with the hook in the right place) and let it dry overnight. The discs come in ve sizes and with large designs such as yours, you will probably require the biggest size, dia140mm, £2.19. This will hold up to three kilos in weight; if the plates are heavier than this, you’ll need to use two discs either side of the back of the plate, connecting them with strong picture cord or wire.

    CONTEMPORARY LIGHT Please can you tell me where I can buy a modern tiered glass chandelier? HELENA CHAMBERLAIN, BY EMAIL

    I’d recommend you have a look at the Amazing Bottle chandelier, above, by Bonne Plat from Rockett St George (01444 253391, rockettstgeorge.co.uk), which is made from 48 bottles, H50cm x Dia60cm, £199. My other suggestion is the Caboche pendant, which comes in three sizes, from H20 x

    Dia31cm, £413, Holloways of Ludlow(020 7602 5757, hollowaysoudlow.com).

    UPHOLSTERED BENCH The bench seat in Frances Halliday’s guest bedroom (p44, April 2014) is just what I’ve been searching for. Where is it from? ANNA TODD, ABERDEEN

    It’s no longer available, but I have a few suggestions. Try Sasha Waddell Furniture’s (020 8979 9189, sashawaddell.co.uk)
