Remodelista Market in London
On Saturday the American interior design and style arbiter Remodelista brought its marketplace to London – perfectly timed for stocking up on Christmas gifts.
Held in conjunction with The New Craftsmen in their lovely premises in Mayfair, it provided the beautifully curated and stylish array of crafts, furniture and home accessories that fans of the interiors website would expect.
The beautifully displayed artefacts from Japan presented by Native & Co, about to open a shop in Notting Hill, were particularly impressive.
I particularly loved their wooden butter dishes
and these Japanese thread nippers and table linens
It was lovely to see Mourne Textiles there. This reinvigorated mill nestled in the Mourne mountains, overlooking Carlingford Lough in county Down has an amazing tradition. It was started by Gerd Hay-Edie who opened the workshop and design studio there in 1954 and produced furnishing fabrics for the likes of Robin Day and Terence Conran. Mourne textiles also played an important role in Irish fashion, through association with Sybil Connolly and Sheila Mullally. It was great to chat with Mario Sierra, grandson of Gerd and current owner, who has reintroduced some of his grandmother’s iconic designs.
Delicious Welsh chocolate from NomNom (try saying it aloud in the style of Cookie Monster). I didn’t spot any Leek flavour, but there were Halen Mon Sea Salt, Peanut Butter and Apple and Blackberry Crumble..
Wooden products from Jeremy Pitts, including a magnificent natural edge tabletop from elm
What did we buy? We showed great restraint in our purchases. We could have easily emptied the room!
A lovely fireside brush and shovel from Geoffrey Fisher
A set of woven coasters from Mourne Textiles
Chocolate of course!
and some Oolong tea from Good and Proper
