The blog will be our way of keeping you more informed about what's going on behind the scenes at snowhome. Kyle and I will post the latest news on new stock arrivals, design ideas, things we like and informal reports about what we are up to.
Over the quiet summer months in Snowhome Angus and John were yet again getting creative with Eggs. The latest product is “Funny Side Up” design from the huge American brand FRED.
We’re really happy with the finished product, and will be adding a video to the site soon.

It was a great show for the snowhome wholesale side of the business, as we used the show to launch the new “Word Map of London” which was well received and we managed to pick up some great new stockists. The show was also a great place to look around and find some new stock for the shop for new year….if you’ve been in the shop lately you’ll understand that it’s needed!
John also exhibited at HOME (on the stand behind) where he also launched some great new products, soon to be stocked in snowhome. (See his stand below).
Love Doves were born from a self initiated brief by John last year. As they proved such a success over the festive period last year, John has re-made us an exclusive batch. The Love Doves are laser cut from Birch Plywood and flat packed so they can be sent to your loved ones anywhere in world. Click Here to buy online.
Say ‘hello’ to TUX, he’s a plywood penguin that has literally flown off the snowhome shelves this weekend. At only £4 we’re sure he’s going to be the perfect Christmas accessory. TUX flat packs into a standard C6 envelope (see Johns packaging design above) which makes him a perfect mail out gift.

An even bigger success on the snowhome shelves over the weekend was TUX mini’s. A set of 12 mini flat pack penguins for £10.90 (see in image above) unfortunately after one day on the shelves they were out of stock, but do not fear, we will add them to the snowhome website as soon as more stock comes our way.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
Earlier this week Angus and I went down to Birmingham NEC to visit the Autumn Fair trade show. Now that summer is over : ( we were on the look out for some new products to stock for Christmas. One of our favourites were these Beard Beanies. They will be a bit pricey at £40 but we just loved them, What do you think? Should we stock them?
It’s 6.30am , so this is a very quick post with some news that John was shortlisted for the Grand Designs Product of the Year. He made it to the last three from 800 entrants and picked up the highly commended award from Kevin MacCloud at last nights award ceremony.
We’ve just got back from ‘Ambiente’ the design fair in Frankfurt………what a great show! It was huge and filled with exciting and inspiring products, so I’m sure snowhome will have a few more best sellers to come as a result.
I’m sure Angus will be doing a nice big post about our trip to Frankfurt and some of the great finds, so I’ll finish here!
I’m currently busy tidying up my desktop on the mac as it has just got crammed with stuff while I have been preparing for 100% design and now as you can imagine I have lots of people to get back to and I cannot find anything! As I was tidying up I found this image, it’s from last year and it seems a shame just to tidy it away and probably never find it again, so I thought I’d share it.
