On a bright and (for a change, not a rainy morning) two of our B&G team, Nicole & Jenny headed to London for a day of buying, sourcing and gaining lots of inspiration from Top Drawer London held at London Olympia! Having been the previous year, no pre expectations were on their minds. Always good to go to a trade show with an open mind, soak in all that there is to offer!
Wow! What a showcase this year, from the many many stands they visited so much talent and stunning products to be able to bring to you over the new few months!
The strong colour palettes that were spotted were, whites and greens (both in a spring vibe and a tropical sense)! Deep blues, red and oranges paired with metallics for a dark and muddy atmosphere! Also spotted (hard to miss) lots of bright colours, hot pinks, teals, purples (Pantone's Colour of the year is Ultra Violet after all) and some more out there neons!
So much to see over such a short amount of time! With scanner in hand (bit like when you watch people shop for weddings type thing) Nicole & Jenny began to pick out some favourites and some amazing new pieces!
Truly blown away by the amazing pieces and displays at Top Drawer this yeah! All the brands smashed it out the park! So much inspiration wherever we looked! Plenty of ideas and fun exciting ventures are in the pipeline here at B&G, we live and breathe it here at B&G HQ, with trips like these we get so many incredible ideas and find quirky/new/innovative pieces that might be making there way into your home soon! Keep an eye out for any Instagram posts or stories about our new deliveries!
