Unfortunately, I was unable to make it to Home London this year as caring for a 4 week old baby meant that a trip up to London is just not possible right now. So I have been forced to experience the show through the Tweets, Instagram photos and Facebook updates of my fellow bloggers who have been able to visit the show. It is clear to see that there is a wide and very varied selection of design talent exhibiting at the show and whilst I am unable to report my findings from the show, there are a number of designers and brands that have nonetheless caught my eye and I would like to feature here. One of those brands is Chive UK.
Established in Toronto in 2004, Chive creates some absolutely gorgeous designs that help to highlight the beauty of floral arrangements. The vases, which take their inspiration from nature, are made from a various materials including glass, plastic, aluminium, porcelain and ceramic. I particularly like the innovative approach taken by Chive in the creation of vases that hang suspended from the ceiling or attached to the wall. The Chive portfolio consists of 600 different vase designs ranging from the ordinary to the unique. They certainly put a smile on my face.
