In my usual nosey fashion I had a little jolly to Pulse London to see what was new. What is often disappointing about these trade shows is how generic much of the design and product on show is. However this does mean that the really good stuff shines out. So here are a few snaps I took of the really good stuff.

This company was a new find for me and I found their illustrations and product really exciting. Vibrant pattern and really thoughtful use of the products they'd designed. The flatpack plywood table and chairs were one of my favourite things at the show.

There is never a time where knitwear is inappropriate. Although I can't knit myself, everyone who knows me, knows that I love knitted things. Seven Gauge studios create stunningly sophisticated and beautifully crafted items in perfect colour combinations. Utterly modern but retaining that mid century feel.
I also came across Deryn Relph's fun and vibrant work and loved the knitted lampshades with crazy pom poms.

I've been a big fan of Roddy & Ginger and Rosehip for sometime so it was great to see their new ranges on show at Pulse. Roddy & Ginger had added Small town and Town planning to her collection. Rosehip was showing the new Sew & Sew range. Great illustration and impeccable colour choices from both.

And here are some other designers I spotted that are definitely worth looking up if you like bold, graphic styles.

  1. I love Roddy and Ginger - their designs are so fun. Kangan Arora and La cerise sur le gateau are favourites of mine as well. I wish I didn't have my final uni deadline on Monday so that I could pop along too! Looks like it was a good show, thanks for sharing.
