Very Happy Christmas from THECUPBOARD!!!!!!!!!!!

We have been having a brilliant time this year, thanks to everyone for reading the blog, submiting amazing work and listening to our endless plans for what we want to do after one too many!

We’ve now been plotting for 6 months and so our plans have changed slightly and become clearer. We feel like the project now has 2 phases>>>>

Phase one = collecting. Collecting designers, makers, products, illustrators, research, inspiration in ideas and visually. This has come out in the blog and with all the people getting involved.

We’ve also focused our eye in to one-off objects, limited editions, handmade/hand finished objects.

Phase two next year is all about popup shops, shows and spaces to show/sell! We really want to make it work and to promote new design, and it looks like its going to happen hurah! Interesting spaces, an investment of cash, and some wicked new people supporting the idea look good for next year!

The more diversity of talented people the better, so send us your work ASAP you lazy sods….

Have a super jolly Christmas time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

LOVE Emma & Helen

Ooh, Thorsten Van Elten start its 12 days of christmas POPUP SHOP-today!!!! 

I love this shop -TVE wanders around, finding interesting product designers then puts the ideas into production himself then sells the designs in his shop….

i like this statement from his beautiful website>>>>

‘What exactly is it you do?’ …is a question Thorsten often gets asked. ‘Hmmm, I’m not quite sure myself.’ is the response he usually gives, ‘I do quite a few different things that are somewhat linked.’

The 12 days runs from from Wednesday the 2nd until Sunday the 13th of December, with all the designs on sale, and a new special offer every day…. head to their studio at The Garage 
1 North Terrace (off Brompton Road), London SW3 2BA. There’s also a seconds sale in bethnal green this weekend…

HAVE A LOOK at this )))))))))) thorstenvanelten.com ((((((((((( >>>>>>>>







Yes, this is early for Christmas (and a bit weird i admit), but the other day i saw these hand blown and decorated glass Christmas decorations! 

Although they are compleately over the top (something that never stops the Cupboard!), there’s nothing like a bit of glitter if you are freezing in the November sunshine.

Also, I read Paul Smith is a fan (NAME DROP!).
