So off to TENT, Super Brands and an over load of cool pattern design, friendly folk and heaps of inspiration. Unmissable. That said, if you did in fact miss the unmissable, read on and get your diary out for next year.
I also have a super little give away for you courtesy of the lovely keith at Mini Moderns.
In fact, from the moment you walked in to TENT, you knew you were in for a pattern treat.
If you've been following pattern booth you will know how much I like Tamasyn Gambell's work, and her stand had some great offerings. I confess I couldn't leave the show without a beautiful lampshade for my refurbed house. (Of course I haven't even decorated yet, but I think the colour mustard is going to have to feature now...)
Now the guys at mini moderns have already given us all a string of modern day classics and a great interview for pattern booth and they haven't stopped there. They have officially solved some of my wallpaper and paint dilemmas and if that wasn't enough, keith gave us a cute give away for pattern booth fans. Read on to the end to find out more...
Okay we're drawing to the end soon, just three more picks to share. The first of those is the lovely erica wakerly, whose amazing wallpapers made for a stunning stand. Along side erica's pattern we have someone whose work is new to me...product and surface designer alison milner who had a range of very cute small tables, one of which you can see here.
Last but not least the clever stylings of designbark and sarah, her fab jumper and her beautiful, geometric and wood creations. Sarah is so thoughtful she even has a range of patterned doors for her sideboard so that if you get easily bored you can replace them with alternative patterns all equally as lovely as the first!
I'm pleased to say we'll be hearing more from erica and sarah quite soon on pattern booth.
Phew, we made it through two shows and now for the reward...
Pattern booth has a cute little give away of a mini modern's notebook and tote all wrapped up in a TENT shopper to keep them safe. To win you just need to leave a comment below on why you love pattern, or tweet your answer to @patternbooth. At the end of the week I'll pick a lucky name out of the tote and the goodies are yours. (If you win we'll let you know by tweet if you tweeted and if you left a comment then leave a url and i'll be in touch that way) Good luck!
