Always on the lookout for new exciting products we love nothing more than studying the pages of the Top Drawer programme with a big cup of tea when it comes through the letterbox! Top Drawer is one of The UK’s leading design-led trade shows, incorporating international Home, Craft and Fashion products all under one roof.
This trade show is well known for ‘Spotted‘ – a design showcase set up to help fledgling businesses new to the trade show arena and has helped the likes of Nikki McWilliams (we’re currently lusting over her Teacake cushion!) become a well known business.

Di Classe: Soft, whimsical lighting – the creator has a passion for playing with the silhouettes his lighting casts. We particuarly love this piece – Paper Foresti.
Boop Design: Beautiful ceramics slipcast with hand drawn illustrations and quotes added. Simple and whimsical, these little cases would line up beautifully on our bathroom windowsill with some fresh flowers in…
