Although it was bitterly cold outside as 2013 had its first sight of snow, Day two at Home London was a busy affair.
Asthetically brilliant, Home London is a trade show of the highest quality. On every corner there is a stand filled with terrific homeware products.
My top picks at the event included:
The cushions, beautifully woven by Ciara McGarrity, are a dream to touch and feel. With calm, subtle patterns the cushion designs engaged my eye and made me wish I could get myself a Waffle cushion. And what further excited me was the news that Waffle will soon be on mydeco.com! Make sure you keep a look out for that.
I was initially drawn to this stand by the array of place mats. Clever, interesting and fun, these mats were right up my street; there was a vinyl style that was particularly great. However it was the Geo Carved Rug, based on the GEO wallpaper that won the Grand Design Awards in 2010, which had a lasting impression on me. Look, feel- this rug had it all.
Loved these! These cages were inspired by birds’ natural nests, many of which take a rounded shape. The cages really are wonderful pieces of product design, immaculately slipcasted in clay. If I had wings and a beak, I know exactly what birdcage I’d be hangin’ out in.
As mentioned in yesterday’s post Michelle, our Creative and Commercial Director, was judging at the Home London Awards. The winners are:
Best Stand: HAM
Best New Product: Trophy
Best Newcomer: Waffle
Great news for the winners, they are all worthy winners and their stands all looked amazing. Well Done!
Looking forward to tomorrow!
