We can’t get enough of our cosy homewares at the moment.. and the range below by House Of Rym is no exception. House Of Rym is a place where ancient Tunisian handcrafts and contemporary Scandinavian design fall head over heels. In love. We love these colourful, homely, tribal-inspired textiles – and they’d look perfect in our living rooms! What’s even better is that all of the following are being offered with a discount at the moment… making these even harder to resist!

sanna-annukka-logo

We’ve been huge admirers of Sanna Annukka’s work for many years, and so we thought we’d check out her latest work as it’s been a while since we’ve taken a peek – and we needed our fix! It’s safe to say that we LOVE Sanna’s prints below.. Each print is a limited edition silk screen print on
285gsm Fabriano Rosapina, signed and numbered by Sanna herself. We just adore her patterns and palettes combined with her simple shapes and compositions. Just lovely. We’re also liking her tea-light holders and Soul Bird piece below too… Yep – we want it alllllll!!!!

zuzunaga

Zuzunaga design and produce really gorgeous homeware products which are inspired by super modern architecture and global megacities like London, Barcelona, New York and Shanghai. And more specifically, the pixel is at the source of Zuzunaga’s passion, described as being “the icon of our time”. Founded by artist and designer Cristian Zuzunaga in 2007, the studio is based between Barcelona and London, and they heartily believe in high quality, sustainable design (hurrah).  We’re not alone in our admiration.. Oh no – far from it… Zuzunaga has received numerous awards including the ICFF Award for Best Textiles in New York and the coveted Les Découvertes award at Maison & Objet in Paris. Enjoy….

Wow. That Laine Fraser is a clever so and so isn’t she? There I was marvelling at her website, full of illustrations, designs and collages (is there nothing she can’t do?!) when I clicked on a link to a site called Tassel and Gaine. Not only does Laine work as a Senior Graphic Designer for iconic Australian stationery brand Typo, she has enjoyed a successful career incorporating a number of disciplines including brand identity, advertising & marketing collateral, magazine cover & layout design, textile design for both apparel & homewares, through to designing gift cards, wrap, craft/scrapbooking product, stationery items, custom illustration & design.  But not content with a career history like that, NOW she has set up her own boutique homewares label Tassel & Gaine with her friend, Fleur Harris. Phew. I’m exhausted just thinking about it. I love, love, love the idea of the double sided cushions, why has nobody thought of this before? Take a look below at a selection of her design and homewares ranges. Wowsers, that’s one busy lady.

We have always had a soft spot for Tom Selleck, especially after seeing him in his lesser-known – and somewhat overlooked – blockbuster ‘Quigley Down Under’ many years ago… His handsome tasche can’t help but make us feel warm inside. And so what better way to celebrate the man than by having a permanent reminder on a cushion? Job done. And we’re not restricted to just the Selleck.. designer replaceface has created a whole collection of manly heroes via Society6, including Sly, Bill Murray, Tom Jones, Patrick Swayze, Jackie Chan, David Bowie and Eddie Murphy – to mention just a few. Santa – please take note that we love them all…and we want them all!

This English Breakfast collection by hokolo london is rather fantastic, don’t you think? From prints to scarves to cushions to throws – the range is full of bold primary colour and delicious patterns. We’ve always been partial to a good old fry-up here at Morning Edit HQ, but this is much more our style… It’s also good to know that the ingredients are all home grown too with the lambswool blankets being woven in Scotland, and the printed cushions made in England. Perfect pressie-idea-alert!!!!!

logoWe all know Angie Lewin’s stunning prints right? But did you know that some of her prints (and some by other carefully selected artists) can be bought as fabric by the metre AND as a range of awesome home textile products? Since coming across the website I have spent far too much time drooling over the cushions and I promised myself that I would get one. An early Christmas present to me. Problem is, it took me so long to choose from the amazing range that by the time I’d decided which one I wanted it was sold out. Darnit. But I have been assured that more will be in stock very soon (seed heads in sage/brown since you ask…) and having re-looked I’ve decided there’s two I can’t live without. If you find yourself in the same quandary it might be worth noting that if you sign up to their newsletter you receive a £10 off a £50 purchase voucher. Score! Now I just have to convince my husband that we DO need more cushions and that in fact you most definitely can’t have too many…

{Katy} I was both privileged and honoured to be invited to be a member of the judging panel of Made in Arts London (MiAL)’s Process In Exile exhibition. Process In Exile brings together a highly curated collection of art and design from students and recent graduates of University of the Arts London for an extra-ordinary exhibition. UAL students and recent graduates were encouraged by MiAL to submit their art and design to a panel of invited industry experts, namely: Angus Montgomery, Editor of Design Week, Tom Jeffreys, Art Critic, Curator and Editor of Wild Culture, and er… lil’ old me!

As a panel we reviewed all of the submissions and were challenged with the task of selecting which pieces should be included in the show – a very hard job indeed seeing as all of the work was so diverse and exciting. Disciplines included fine art, illustration, photography, performance, video art, product design and textiles.

The exhibition focuses on connecting the bright young talented artists, having now reached a crucial point in their careers, with a growing number of generous creative professionals open to helping and advising this new generation through a series of events.

While the exhibition has just come to a close, all of the work is available for purchase on MiAL’s fantastic online shop here, and we urge you to have a look! We’ve picked out a few favourites to share with you below, but there is so much more to browse – not only from the show but from MiAL’s online shop too! Whether you’re looking to support new emerging creative talent or are searching for a special Christmas gift perhaps, you’re sure to find something unique here!

We shared our love of Lucie Sheridan‘s work on a previous post here, but we’re loving these new homeware pieces, and figured you probably would too!! Aren’t they fab? Perfect Christmas gift ideas, we thinks!

What we like most about Ana Montiel‘s work is the diversity of her portfolio, as such different styles are incorporated and yet all are so strong! We’re digging the abstract pattern pieces shown first below, but who can resist the gorgeous ‘cake’ themed design as well? Ana is a London-based Spanish designer with many talents to her name.. Her influences vary from David Lynch and his ‘holistic approach to creativity’.. Jung’s Red Book, the Arts & Crafts movements, Quantum Physics, Astrology, and Yoga. Perhaps her diverse influences help to explain her varied styles and approaches? But we’re not alone in loving her stuff.. Her client list includes Nina Ricci, Anthropologie, Jo Malone and Carolina Herrera, and has exhibited in Europe and North America. So all pretty impressive. We hope you like!
