Top Drawer 2018

No Comments | September 10,2018 | by Site Administrator

Have you ever wondered where your favourite boutique’s get all those wonderful designer-maker items from?

Well, one of those places is Top Drawer, the UK’s leading trade event for creative lifestyle buyers, and it’s on this week at Earl’s Court.

Top Drawer is not open to the public, but it attracts over ten thousand trade buyers, from large chains to small independent boutiques, who come to see the curated showcase of over 1500 creative lifestyle brands from gifts & fashion to homeware, crafts and, of course, designer ceramics like ours.

It is one of the best places that boutique owners can visit to get inspired and to see what will be in the shops next season. Exhibitors are chosen by Top Drawer to showcase the wide range of inspiring, creative homeware that is currently on offer. It has been our privilege to be one of the curated exhibitors at Top Drawer many times over the years but, this year, we have other commitments and will not be showing. I’m sure trade customers won’t be disappointed though, there are hundreds of other fabulous design-led lifestyle brands from the UK and abroad.

A sneak peek of the amazing creative homeware on show at this year’s Top Drawer would reveal the incredibly realistic, high-quality imitation flowers of Amaranthine Blooms,  Whitelaw & Newton‘s handcrafted lacquered trays and the gloriously chunky knit throws from Melanie Porter.

There are so many creative designer-makers, craftspeople, manufacturers and more at Top Drawer that it’s impossible for us to list them here, but it’s only open to the trade so you can’t get in unless you are registered as a buyer or a store owner. In the meantime, you can explore the exhibitors at this year’s at Top Drawer’s on the show’s official website.

And if you’re wondering where you can pick up the funky “Top Drawer” porcelain drawer knobs shown at the top of this post, they are part of our range of Keith Brymer Jones Top Drawer knobs.
