Ah…two days on the trot spent traipsing around trade shows with the bump and I feel like I need a holiday! I visited Top Drawer Spring (showcasing hot products for the home, gifts, and all sorts – totally amazing) and yesterday was spent at Bubble, the kids trade show. I shall be highlighting the former later in the week but wanted to bring you my hot picks from Bubble.
I have to say – this show was very different from last summer and there weren’t as many new brands, or that many discerning ones, although I did enjoy getting a sneaky peek at collections for autumn winter and catching up with peeps from favourite brands and the many people I talk to over the course of the year about their stores!
Unlike last year where I did a big long list of my finds, I have instead chosen to highlight my six absolute favourites from the show. A combination of great product but also inspirational and engaging people who are passionate about the fruits of their creativity, my favourite six were:
Mini Moderns by Absolute Zero, Teeny Tini by JK Lange, Baby Bloch Shoes, Mambino Organics, Shokay, and Christa Davis.
Mini Moderns by Absolute Zero
An edgy collection of cushions, wallpapers, and accessories for ‘kids and kidults’, we were already converts, but seeing the full collection in person and meeting the absolute charmers behind it, has certainly ensured dedicated fans in us. Made in the UK and dazzling cool with their inspired ‘playtime prints’, they’re seriously flying the flag for British kids interior products. Visit Mini Moderns. See our previous post on Mini Moderns.
