A visit to Firefly House
This monday we went up to north London to see the lovely Russel and Jan at Firefly House. They are our new London stockists and we brought up five Sammy the Sausage Dogs for them to sell in their beautiful shop.
We hope that all five find good homes over Christmas. we are also going to be stocking our wallpaper and fabric books there, as well as a range of our cushions. Soon you will be able to order our wallpaper and panels from their website and shop. We would really recommend visiting their store- they are such friendly people and know so much about furniture, it was really fun talking to them!
We will have to visit again to check everything out! And of course see how our little Sammy dogs are doing.
Take care, and we’ll see you soon!
hi everyone, we hope you are ok!
in our blog today we’ll be showing you the ‘before’ and ‘after’ of the chair that we had on show at 100% Design, made with our wild west toile fabric.
we had the idea to re upholster this chair as we wanted to showcase the versatility of our fabrics at the show. we’ve recently started to expand our collection to include various fabrics other than the ones we use for our standard cushions and lampshades, like out furoshiki, and so we thought what better time to show some of our other fabrics than at the show!
we used our a cotton furnishing fabric, suitable for a surface wipe clean. moonlight(dark blue), sun (yellow) and blue jay blue (light blue) were the three colourways used, but in the future it would be nice to have all kinds of different combinations! the chair looks good, don’t you think?
for more pictures and a full report, read our blog! wrap up warm, and we’ll see you soon.
It looks like Autumn has finally arrived…it’s so chilly!
This letter is to say a big thank you to all the wonderful design blogs that have featured our work after 100% Design. We love reading blogs about surface and interior design, they really inspire us here at Yukari Sweeney Design.
We’d like to give a huge thank you to all these people. Seeing your kind words really brighten up our day!
We were mentionedby Emily Peck, the editor of ACHICA Living, as well as Carole King, who featured us in her blog Dear Designers. Emma Hayward edits the ysh London blog and was so kind as to have featured us in her post-show report. Thank you so much! We really urge everyone to go out and read these blogs. They are an inspiration!
Last (but not least) we have to give a huge thank you to Victoria Redshaw, who has been a supporter of ours for a while, even being so kind as to feature us in her influential blog, Scarlet Opus. We are so honoured that you thought of us! As we continue to think of new products and designs, we hope we meet more people who will like them enough to write about them!
we hope you’re not to soggy after this october rain…
we just thought we’d take the time to introduce to you our retailers, in ireland and most recently in london.
the wonderful lorna sixsmith has been stocking our wallpapers, lampshades and cushions at Garrendenny Lane Interiors since early last year, and has been a huge help towards our little company. she has always been a big supporter of whatever we do and we are so happy that our products are available on her website!
our new stockists, who approached us at 100% design this year, are called Firefly House- a company based in north london who, as well as having a very charming website design (we love dogs!), sell all kinds of beautiful modernist furniture and lighting.
for our little surface design company to be featured on these two websites alongside huge established names in the interior world like Eames, Sanderson and Knoll is a huge boost to us. we are so proud to be producing for these two companies, and we’d like to extend our thanks to them both! we hope that our relationships with Garrendenny Lane will continue for a long time, and we really look forward to working with Firefly House.
very soon we will be posting the next installment of our furoshiki folding project on our blog. we hope you are looking forward to this as much as we are- we will be selling our fabrics and furoshiki on the website in the future, but if you would like to know more about buying them, please do not hesitate to contact us!
We had a really great time at 100% Design! We had a lot of great feedback and were situated in a place filled with lots of other very talented designers.
This is a picture of our stand, we were really happy with the way it came out! The new Coordinated Wallpaper collection was very popular, we are so honoured that everybody liked it so much.
We have a full report of our show at our blog page, with more photos and some information about what we used in our stand.
We will soon put up some more pictures on our Facebook page. Stay tuned for it!
