If anyone has any work that they’ve completed this year or are producing for future seasons SEND A BIT IN and we’ll start a little collection of ideas on the blog. New year new sights!



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
