Top Drawer Interiors Show

Top Drawer Interiors Show

Top Drawer is a Home, Gift, Fashion & Craft show held in January at Olympia in London. Always-on-trend, the theme this year was neon, with fluorescent tubes suspended
in geometric patterns. It is one of the most successful of all the London based shows, appealing to both large & small retailers due to the wide range of exhibitors.

With regards to trends for S/S17, Blue and Green should definitely be seen. These both work fabulously with grey, which it seems is here to stay! Expect to see this around
the store in the coming months.

 

Coach House:
One of the most popular room sets at the show centred around a deep white
linen corner group sofa, accented with blue & white cushions & oversize lamps.
The furniture, with its oriental influences, contrasted well with basketware &
palms, creating an almost British Colonial meets Miami style - both uplifting &
refreshing!

Designed In Colour:
Designed In Colour was founded in 2015 by two friends who have a studio & showroom in
the Oxo tower. They design contemporary, colourful design-led products (including the now
iconic Pantone Mug, a familiar item on the high street).
Amongst an eclectic array of table top pieces, Display Manager Sarah Norris has selected a
collection of tactile, hand-blown glass tumblers & carafes to add a touch of the
Mediterranean to our Garden Furniture displays this Spring/Summer.

Make International:
Make International was established in 2005, and frequently collaborates with other designers 
to create items that are practical, high quality & stylish.
In 2008 they joined forces with renowned ceramicist Keith Brymer Jones to create an 
appealing range of white porcelain crockery with hand stamped detail. These ranges
will be hitting the shelves in March/April!

Sophie Allport:
The Hearts collection is covered in pale pink hearts on a neutral grey background.
Runner Duck collection features quirky white runner ducks waddling around a soft
blue coloured background.
Each collection comprises of fine bone china, kitchen essentials, bags, accessories
and other homewares.
