Home 2012 at Earls Court – my top 5 favourites

On Monday afternoon I spent a merry couple of hours seeing lots of new products and meeting new people at the newly launched Home show at Earl’s Court. Scouring the stands for great new products I spotted many lovely items. Here are my top 5 who caught my eye with their delicious designs.

StrikAholic’s Danish designer Dorte Niedziella has designed a lovely collection of Childrens’s organic bedding. Fun design’s that include graphics that represent the paper dolls that I had as a child.

Årytrays had a wonderful design by British textile designer Asta Barrington called Folk Stripes which had an intricate embroidery style detail.  Reminded me of a brightly coloured spirograph!

Mibo’s playful graphics are addictive. The new kids range of bags and T-shirts they have created for French company coq en pate will be available from June. I think the fox is my favourite. I can just imagine a small cluster of kids with these great backpacks on – too cute. Plus have to support a fellow Brighton & Hove resident!

Natural History’s new monkey collection brings fun and whimsy combined with the type of graphics that look like they have come from an 19th century scientific journal. The new design is also available in a wallpaper and fabric by the meter.

Betty Boyns fabric range has a delightful vintage charm. I was quite taken with the regatta design and that their range is completely sourced, printed and manufactured in the UK.

    Thanks for the little peek, Mary. Once again I am afraid I have to second Will – I am in love with the bunting on the Boyns fabric:-)

    Hi Mary! Hope you are having a great weekend. Betty Boyns was a new one for me and I just had to visit her website. So playful and happy! Really liked her design. Thanks for sharing your finds from the Home Show.

    Mary, can't believe there were so many of us at the 'home' exhibition and we didn't arrange to meet for coffee. That would have been fun… sorry you'll miss Saturday. You picked some great stuff!
