Nadia Sparham


Some more posts about English designers this week…. Via Karin style I found Nadia Sparham. Nadia designs and produces beautiful handmade cushions, ceramics and other interior products. Nadia’s wish is to design products that are luxurious and unusual, and contributing to preservation of handcrafts. Her prints are simply gorgeous and I would love to have a set of her tableware.


Nadia's designs are digitally or hand screen-printed, embroidered onto silks, wools and cottons. You will not find mass production on her website, these are all unique and customized pieces! Contact Nadia for pricing and availability.

Row Pinto Knitwear


Another great English designer is Row Pinto from Deptford, London. Row Pinto is a knitwear designer. Her trend forecasting background clearly shows in her wonderful collection. She used to work for big names like Marc Jacobs and Donna Karan, but decided to start her own business in 2003.


Row's aim is to bring traditional English country knitwear to the city with a new modern and eccentric twist. I like her antique lace cushion collection very much. You can shop online, but you will need deep pockets to go on a shopping spree…

Louisa Taylor


Louisa Taylor from the UK is the designer of this porcelain clay tableware. Inspired by 18th Century tableware and studying the rituals of dining in the 18th century Louisa created these wonderful pieces.


Louisa’s aim is to bring a sense of grace and presence to the table top, without dominating the food that is being presented. The collection is available in the colours blue–opal and green–pink. Email Louisa if you would like to order some.

Le Petite Atelier de Paris


Once in a while I get really excited about a find. Le Petit Atelier de Paris is such a find. They were also featured on Crust Station recently.


Le Petit Atelier is both a boutique and an atelier located in the most beautiful ‘arrondissement’ of Paris, Le Marais. Their handmade collection of ceramics is simply amazing. Fragile, original and beautiful soft colors.


Would you like to recieve more information just send an email or visit their website. Also check out their lovely ‘journal’ which features some great photography.

Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings are ScholtenBaijings. Their designs are absolutely beautiful, eye for detail and daring use of colors…there is no information on about this mystery (but quite famous at the same time) duo on their website… so I searched the Internet and putting together the bits and pieces tell us that Stefan and Carole started their collaboration in 2000 and that they have done a lot of minimalist designs for the Dutch furniture company Gelderland. Their work is also shown in the Amsterdam Stedelijk Museum and the Central Museum in Utrecht. Just visit their website and you will find all their great designs and projects.

Milan 2007

{New daybeds and cushions from Morosso designed by Doshi Levien}
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to visit the Milan furniture fair 2007. But thanks to some great blogs we can still experience the highlights of the fair. At Design*Sponge, Dezeen and Sharedutchdesign you can find excellent reports and images of the fair. Here are a few designs that I really found interesting.
