This Christmas we are very excited to be popping up again on Bristol's historic harbourside and taking over the Architecture Centre with our second Christmas Design Temporium instalment.
In our Christmas Design Temporium (that’s a temporary emporium folks) you will find unrivalled collection of jewellery, textiles, prints and artworks inspired by architecture and that are built to last from a selection of Bristol & Britain’s top designers.
Our seasonal shop kicks off with a launch event on Friday 21 November from 5-8pm, where you will be able to enjoy an exclusive preview. See more by following me.
We are very excited to share just a few of the talented designers taking part....
Nick Fraser creates unique candlesticks & coat racks fashioned from pipework & brass plumbing fittings that would make a spectacular addition to your home. We love his grey glazed terracotta geometric planters too (see above.) Perfect for a stylish winter windowsill herb garden.
Paul Farrell's graphic style is right up our street and the only issue with his bear cushions is deciding which one to cuddle up with. Which is a grrrreat problem to have! Expect bold colours and a fresh perspective from Paul's festive collection of gifts, perfect for the design-o-phile in your life.
The Food Guide designs products that have a focus on food, whether it’s growing it, serving it up beautifully for friends for just taking delight in it. We simply have to play head gardener and eat our next dippy egg with a ceramic shovel!
Bristol based illustrator Lucie Sheridan is also taking part in our festive ode to great design. She has created a glorious pair of coasters to celebrate Bristol's most famous piece of architecture, Brunel's suspension bridge, which will be celebrating it's 150 birthday this December. Lucie will also have a colourful array of cards, prints and other gifts to share with you in our Christmas Design Temporium.
Stay tuned for more previews very soon.....
