So what were the highlights?
Brand new company Selected Stockholm, too new to even have a proper web site but fabulous glamorous silk velvet and cotton damask bedding and curtains they do have. Super luxurious and wonderful colours.
I've always loved Pip Studio and think their new bed linen range is sweet
I popped over to my friends at Sagen Vintage and drooled over their lace and velvet ribbons..might have to order some of that!
I fell in love with this lamp! It is sooo cute, from Kamelo
Now I'm no fan of rag rugs, just don't like em, but I do love recycling and thought this was a brilliant idea! It's also a non slip mat which is extra cool!
Danish company Vanillafly is always to be relied on for dark and vintage designs
I loved almost everything on the Ulf Andersson stand. Such beautiful flattering cuts, very retro and lovely. I think I'll have 12...he he, just kidding
Lots of birds still everywhere, plenty of peacocks but I have to say, I'm so over naive owls. There was patchwork owls and every kind of funny old owl thing you could imagine at Formex...Enough I say!
I loved this wallpaper from up and coming designer Nadja Wedin and it's nominated for the Formex Formidable 2013 prize. I wish her the best of luck!
Here is me sitting on a chair with one of her designs on... you know, she paints all the designs meticulously by hand!
You know I said there was a lot more weird antique eccentricness? well check this out! Miss Rabbit is very cute!
I missed being there as an exhibitor, missed the buzz and energy but I did love soaking up all the impressions and catching up with lots of my friends there. I am off to Tendence trade show in Germany next week (didn't have time to do both trade shows). I'm sure there will be even more buzz and energy!
