The Coadg Bursary Shortlist Class of 2014

This time last week I was exhibiting at Home London, alongside Taz, Nancy, Keith and Fanny; the Confessions of a Design Geek class of 2014!

It was my first taste of a trade show and I enjoyed every minute of it. Granted there was plenty to take in and learn from (and setting up was a bit tricky at times!) but I feel very positive about the show and attending similar events in the future. I met lots of lovely buyers, press, twitter friends and fellow stand holders and of course it was my first time meeting Katie (coadg) and the shortlist. Getting to know them and seeing their inspirational products was one of the highlights of the experience. Here we all are pictured below;

The reaction to my work was very encouraging and I’m hopeful lots of good things will come from the exhibition. You’ll be the first to know! In the mean time here are a few photos of our stand taken by Yeshen Venema (

Big thanks to those of you who visited our stand and said hello… it was lovely to meet you!
