Top Drawer & Home London

Well better late than never here goes our Top Drawer London and Home London round-up!
It was such a fun and inspiring day and a brilliant chance to see fresh talent and some familiar faces. We thought we would share with you some of our highlights from the shows!

Amanda Ross's beautiful layered botanical prints particularly caught our eye at top drawer. Amanda produces images of an extraordinary life like quality in a complimentary colour palette.

Rachael Taylor never fails to brighten our days with her fun quirky designs. It was lovely to catch up with Rachael at Home and to see her newly developed cushion collection. The reversible cushions are of a stunning quality and Rachael has developed some fresh florals to add to her ever growing brand.

It was fantastic to finally meet the lovely Libby McMullen at Top Drawer. Her stand was beautifully bright with an array of wall art prints and greetings cards. We absolutely love her whimsical and beautifully detailed designs and can't wait to see more!

Ruth Jackson's fun summer prints really stood out at Top Drawer. We love her helter-skelter and ice lolly prints as well as her playful ice cream truck illustrations. Ruth's distinctive seaside theme and splashes of summer colours really got us excited for the sun to come out!

Painterly watercolour florals were all over Home and Top Drawer however Fiona Douglas's (of bluebellgray) stunning cushion were definitely our favourites. We had already spotted bluebellgray's exquisite textiles in ..... Magazine last month and were excited to see more from Fiona. The collection didn't disappoint with it beautiful spring colour palette and stunning detail. We will definitely keep our eyes peeled for more!

Ferm living at 95% stand was one of our favourite brands at home! We absolutely love the distinctively cool colour palette with rose pink and shades of mint and teal. The fresh geometric patterns are sophisticated, stylish and perfectly on trend.

Claire Gaudion's new collection of digitally printed geometric silk scarves were a hit at Top Drawer. Claire's tonal colour palette Inspired by Guernsey's coastline really stoop out and we really look forward to seeing more from this up and coming designer.

After following minor moderns religiously on twitter we were excited to see there stand at Home. There UK based brand is going from strength to strength with there fantastic fun and completely original style. There new triangular design really reminded us of a backgammon board! We love the totally contemporary colour palette and will definitely continue to follow there success.

We had an absolutely fantastic day and came back to the office inspired by all the talent out there.
We hope to be in touch with all the lovely exhibitors we spoke with in the near future and are counting down the days to exhibiting at Spring fair at the NEC Birmingham in February!!
We hope everyone had a fabulous show we believe it was a huge success and can't wait for next year!

Artistic Britain Goes Global!

We are delighted to announce that we are now working together with the high end Australian online retail store OzSale!

They are the number one member only online shopping club in Australia. Every day they host sales for the top brands in the world – including fashion, accessories, beauty and home-ware brands.

We are overjoyed to be celebrating this successful venture as the Australian public went mad for our artwork and some of the art sold out within hours! Shirley MacArthur’s Happy Horses and Nosey Cows were particularly popular.

We were inundated with requests for Artistic Britain artwork to be delivered to Australia and are currently looking into the possibility of offering delivery to Oz! It’s a really exciting prospect and we can’t wait to continue working with our Australian contacts in the future!
