Pulse returns from 11-13 May, 2014 with retailers’ first peek at never-before-seen products, the latest trends and inspiring lessons via a comprehensive business insight programme. This May, over 500 brands will be joining the show at Earls Court, providing a one-stop shop for stunning new products across home, gift, fashion and accessories.
Current trends show that retailers today are buying little and often, thus making Pulse the perfect opportunity to source brand-new products from a mix of established brands and up-and-coming designer/makers at London’s only summer design-led gift event. Amongst the big timers in giftware, homeware, fashion and wellbeing, retailers will also meet over 100 quirky, contemporary and trend-setting designers in Launchpad, an exclusive platform dedicated to identifying, developing and promoting commercially ready talent from across the globe.
Giftware Review loves Drift Classics, gorgeous range of bags, inspired by the past, with shapes and details that never go out of style. The leather is hand refined and distressed until it looks and feels like true vintage leather. Irregularities are preserved and individuality is celebrated.
Beautiful, individually handcrafted and made with real care, this multi-award winning Polish stoneware supplied by Blue Dot Pottery is right on trend with its gorgeous colours and traditional style. All the company’s products are manufactured by Artistic Ceramics Poland, the workshop is recognised at international and national competitions for the value and quality of its products. High firing temperature (1260C) makes all vessels chip-resistant, ovenproof, microwave and dishwasher safe.
Under the name Natty Maid, Mandy Tait produces unique and distinctive artwork using printmaking techniques such as Collagraph and Linocut. We love the bold and colourful patterns, which are now available on textiles, stationery and homeware.
It’s nice to see something different in soft furnishings and interiors, and the industrially inspired pieces from Anthony Hughes are fantastic. His graphic and photographic digitally printed designs are available on wallpapers, cushions and light shades.
