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.

HOME 2012

A quick picture of our stand from HOME – LONDON at Earls Court this week (the intense light and funny carpet made it a bit hard to expose the camera, sorry).

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).

TUX

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.

Click here to purchase your very own TUX.

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.

ANYONE FANCY A KNITTED BEARD?

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?

I think they’re perfect for cycling around a cold city during the winter months, because if like me you can’t really grow a proper beard then you will know all about that freeeezing cold chin.

GRAND DESIGNS LIVE


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’re sharing a stand at the Grand Designs Live show at Excel in London which is on until Sunday 8th. We’re just exhibiting two products; John’s Embrace table and my new Word Map. The maps have been selling really well and I’m very worried that there’s not enough stock to last the weekend!
I’ll post with more details when we return from London on Monday.

LAMINO

We had a special delivery from SWEDESE this morning with the LAMINO chair we had ordered for a customer. As shop owner Angus took the privilege of sampling it, (I hope they don’t mind). Angus described as “the comfiest chair I have ever sat on” followed by “I want one”.
The lamino chair was designed by Swedese founder Yngve Ektrom in 1956, it’s timeless. I hope I can design something like this one day.
PS. sneaked embrace in the shot (bit of shameless self promo)

BOBBLE ROAD TEST

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.

Whilst we were away Angus took his ‘Bobble’ water bottle (featured below) and everytime he slipped it out of his bag for a drink I was jealous. In total I spent 12euro’s on bottled water over the 3 days we were there. Everytime I went to buy water angus went to the toilet and filled up his ‘Bobble’ saving him 12euro, so that’s definately paid for itself.
On our first day back since the fair we have just taken delivery of 100’s of Bobbles and replacement filters……………………….I know what I’ll be buying after today’s shift. Check out Karim’s little chat about the design:

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!

THIS TIME LAST YEAR

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.
