We are really excited in the studio this morning as we are booking lots of great events for the year ahead. It is always great to see our year filling up with events we have done before and new ones too.
We are really excited about Deepdale's Spring Market. We took part last year and just loved it. This year however is a bit different...Deepdale Spring Market is now part of the Deepdale Hygge, which will be a big celebration of the Norfolk coast line. Hygge is a Danish word that means to take great pleasure in making everyday moments and situations more meaningful and special. Hygge has become a way of living and has become an extremely popular in the few years in the UK. Deepdale has it's very own campsite and yurts, so you can stay close to beautiful Norfolk coast where they want you to create your own Hygee. Alongside the wonderful market there will be lots of different events going on such as; live music, story telling, guided runs and walks, star gazing and a group BBQ - it just sounds fantastic! Make sure you pop along to this wonderful event between the 24th and 26th of March.

We got back to the studio on Wednesday after a fantastic time at Top Drawer and that was from Saturday till Tuesday. It has been super busy in the studio ever since hence why it has taken till Friday to update you with all our news! So we apologise for that... We were in Craft at Top Drawer, it was great to be surrounded by so many British designers and makers. We shared experiences as well as gaining so much knowledge from their time in the industry. It was so much fun to connect with designers from all over the country, all of us with the same passions and enthusiasm for British craft and manufacturing.
Top Drawer was a chance for us to share our full collection with trade customers, as well as launching a few new products as well. We had a great reaction to our work and we will be excited to share your new stockists with you all soon. We met so many inspiring designers and would love to show you all their work but we could only pick a few, we hope you like them as much as we did!
Remy Dubibe Ceramics - Remy creates stunning installations of thin and delicate shaped porcelains, fragile ceramics, 'fragments', vibrant designs, 'Jewelleries' with a poetic feeling inspired by memories.
Edit Juhasz Ceramics - Edit Juhasz is a London based studio-potter, designing hand-thrown porcelain table-wares. Specializes in the hand-throwing over 20 years. Believes that traditional craft skills can be used to make contemporary craft pieces. With these craft skills, makes simple and useful shapes to emphasize the beauty of porcelain. The porcelain table-wares are thinly thrown and the rims are colored with oxides in blue,green and brown colors.
Iris De La Torre - Iris De La Torre is a Mexican Jewellery Designer Maker based in London. Iris’ colourful work is inspired by Mexico’s folkloric spirit, its arts and crafts, naïve identity and vibrant combinations of colour. Another big influence of hers is 1960s graphic design for its use of bold colour, form and geometric shapes. Iris believes that her jewellery designs and the way her pieces are constructed speak an aesthetic language that captures graphic excitement and colour, which embodies fun, delight, spectacle and enthusiasm.
Heather McDermott Jewellery - Heather McDermott Jewellery is inspired by the ever-changing shoreline of her island home, the Isle of Skye. She uses stainless steel and silver to create contemporary jewellery. Combining vivid colour and repetition of shape each piece is an expression of sculptural form.
We have put together our perfect monochrome / rose gold kitchen for you... so we have created a small edit, Let us know what you think! We have handpicked four british designers that we feel compliment our designs and which we absolutely love. We can't get enough of the monochrome / rose gold combination at the moment! Follow our pinterest board for more ideas to compliment these products >>> https://uk.pinterest.com/IzziRainey/monochrome-rose-gold-turquoise-kitchen-decor/
We have been following Geo Fleur for a while now and love all their work- especially these gorgeous chrome dipped plant pots. Geo Fleur specialise in beautiful geometric homewares, they are botanical stylists, and are obsessed with adding greenery in any space.
The stunning rose gold cafetiere, which can be personalised(!!!), is a result of Becky Broome who are a husband and wife team with a gift for giving. They believe the perfect gift is something thought, beautiful anf personalised and we here at IzziRainey couldn't agree more.
Ingrid Petrie Home
Who doesn't love a quirky print?... We have fallen for this cacti print by Glasgow designer Ingrid Petrie. Ingrid's contemporary and distinctive style could fit into any room in the home and appeals to all ages. We especially can realte to Ingrid's ethos of producing her prints in the studio or locally and using high quality materials at all times.
We couldn't resist this 'hello weekend' plate from family business TillyMint Loves, it's fun and stylish at the same time. We thought you could use it as a plate or could be great mounted on the wall in a kitchen. It would also look great on some IzziRainey 'Highland Cow' placemats don't you think? Check out the rest of TillyMint Loves range as they have some great gif ideas aswell... not just for the kitchen.
We are really looking forward to Top Drawer this weekend, it will be our first time exhibiting there and we can't wait. We have been looking at all the other wonderful designers and makers who, like us, are in the 'Craft' section of Top Drawer, and we have picked a few designers who we will be looking out for.
We love Gabrielle Vary's stunning knitwears. We met Gabrielle at the Wealden Times Fair in November and fell in love with her work. She has a fantastic range of handmade cushions, blankets, scarves and ponchos- all made by her in Sussex. Make sure you go and take a look at Gabrielle's work on stand C-D14.
Veegadesign is a new design company based in London, that specialises in bold and contemporary furniture and homewares. We think this chair is just stunning, and looks so cosy! Make sure you go and have look at Veega's work on stand C-E29.

Curzon and Co are based in Kings Lynn, it is really exciting to be working with such a local design company. It has been great to work with a company that share the same passions as us for British design and manufacturing.
Working together with Curzon and Co, we have combined our contemporary, eye-catching fabrics to produce a pair of iconic bespoke stools with Curzon and Co's high quality craftsmanship. It has been fantastic to be able to expand our lifestyle range and to see our fabrics applied onto furniture, especially whilst working alongside a Norfolk craftsmen.
