Ethically sourced contemporary design that embraces traditional crafting techniques.
mydeco.com in conversation with Vicki from Delve
What's the ethos behind your brand?Beautifully designed and hand crafted pieces. We tend to use natural materials with interesting textures and accents of bold graphics. We celebrate pieces that show the mark of a maker’s hand.
What led you to set up Delve?We founded Delve in order to celebrate great design that was ethically sourced. We love that craftspeople benefit directly when we sell their home wares through our platform. For us, it’s all about giving something back to the wider community.
Who is your favourite designer and why?I draw inspiration from many sources; being an architect it can come from the forms and shapes of buildings, fabric designs or natural forms. I love Ray Eames' 1940s bold fabric designs and Neisha Crosland's rich graphic, fabric designs. Yet, I also love architect John Pawson's balanced minimalist interiors and Peter Zumpthor's sensuous yet spare designs. Natural forms are captured so perfectly by photographer Karl Blossveld; the quality of organic form is contrasted with geometric graphic pattern, which makes for an exciting dialogue.
What's the ethos behind your brand?My wedding ring. I designed it around my grandmother's aquamarine dress ring stone, so it has been reconfigured to suit a contemporary context, whilst still retaining a special sentimental value.
What do you like about mydeco and which product from the site would you most love to have in your home?I love the eclectic range of original designs all brought together in one space. At the moment I am in love with the retro desk by Idyll Home and the geometric rugs by Rockett St George!
