Home Exhibition 2012

Today is the last day for the new Home exhibition at Earls Court, London. The exhibition promises to showcase emerging trends from British & International designers and I was hoping to attend but unfortunately work (and my tax return) has kept me away.

Browsing through the show preview catalogue this morning whilst having my breakfast, I was really impressed and will definitely make the effort to get there next time. As a designer and stylist, it is important to keep up to date with new products and trends and I love the seminars that are often held at these events.

Here are some of my favourite products that will be exhibited and will be available on the High Street for us all in the next few weeks, providing the orders have been made!

I love cushions and the fact that they can transform a room with very little out lay. These are by Barbara Coupe, whose products are available through Rockett St George & Notonthehighstreet

Some lovely designs are available through Claire Nicholson who is a textile designer. I used to sell vintage fabrics in a past life and Claire, back in the day, was one of my regular customers. The girl’s done  good!

As a big tea drinker, I can never get enough of crockery. One of my favourite new finds is the Dutch design company Jansen & Co, who will be showcasing their tableware at the exhibition. These doily coasters are so pretty and I love the strong graphic shapes and colours of the cake stands and crockery below.

This is the new tableware collection by Scandi design giants Marimekko. I love it’s 1950’s retro design and colour palette.

I’m currently looking for wallpaper for my daughters room and I am loving this reclaimed wood design by Piet Heim Eek available through Bodie & Fou

These bobbin stools are by design company XL Boom and remind me of a design I did at University, for a cafe within a vintage clothes store. I love the quirky shape and primary colours and think they would look great within a commercial space. XL Boom designs are available in the UK through Made in Design.
