Those that watch my insta stories know that I spent a crazy time rushing around a couple of the design fairs two weeks ago. Due to work deadlines I was only able to attend two of three of the fairs that were on at the same weekend which was unfortunate, but nevertheless there was a tremendous buzz of activity at the two I did attend with suppliers displaying all of the latest and upcoming trends.
For those not in the trade, have no fear because I have listed a few of my favourite furniture and homeware retailers from the fairs.
I always have my eye out for something a little different when I attend these events and whilst there were many high quality scandi-coastal stores, it was refreshing to also be able to find something a little more unique. The suppliers I have listed stood out to me and I can’t wait to use their pieces in my projects.
Do yourself a favour and check them out!
McMullin & Co.
Recently rebranded from ‘Little Things Interiors’, McMullin & Co furniture may have a gorgeous luxe boho aesthetic, however all the pieces would be at home in any style. I fell in love with every single piece on display. Alice travels to the off beaten track (she has some very interesting stories to tell) to source every individual piece herself and supports the local craftsmen and women. The result are products of the highest quality.
Founded by husband and wife team, Kathy and Ralph and with a philosophy of ethical sourcing, every piece is either completely unique or highly curated. Spaning from art to interiors and fashion, the Bisque look is relaxed, unstructured, global and lived in. Super stylish.
French Country Collections
The French Country look has been popular for generations and with good reason. Its sophisticated yet relaxed. Whether you want that provincial kitchen or boudoir bedroom French Country Collections has it all. They have everything from the perfect occasional chair to champagne bowls, chandelier lighting to a sausage dog statue you never knew you needed (hint to husband).
If you love the Mediterranean vibe then you’re going to love Paloma Living. They “intertwine the opulence of the Mediterranean style with a tactile focus”. You’ll just want to submerge yourself in their timeless textiles and chic furnishings. I can’t get enough!
Dark and earthy, textured pieces that are sourced by Rouba Alamein (who founded the iconic Manyara Home). Some of you may call it boho coastal but it has an edge – drama and a mood. As Rouba herself said “these are designs for people who love coming home, escaping the day and embracing the night”. I’m sold.
If you love any of these pieces and need help incorporating them with your own style and into your own home then please drop me a line any time at firstname.lastname@example.org
