New Designers Online

July 31, 2007

I stumbled upon a most informative UK-based website called New Designers Online, a comprehensive guide showcasing new design talent mostly from Europe, much along the same lines as Trunkt here in America. It’s a site you’ll want to browse because the talent featured is phenomenal – so fresh! And talk about inspired design… I’d like to share with you a few of my favorites, all of whom I’ve written to requesting more information and imagery, with hopes that they will write back and I can feature them again in the future. I’m especially smitten by the work of Heidi Turner and Matt Smith. Wow. Impressive.

New Designers Online Heidi Turner – “Contemporary, embroidered and embellished designs with a bright folkloric feel, inspired by nature and environment on natural fabric.” – New Designers Online.

New Designers Online Loretta Harmer – “Loretta’s distinct style is inspired by her dual love of nature and textures, evident in her creations which include silver seed pendants, poetry bangles and pine cone table sculptures.” -New Designers Online. Loretta also has a website called Natural Impression.

New Designers Online Katja Behre – “Katja creates distinctive neo-romantic designs with consideration given to colour, shape and theme, manifesting itself as wall coverings and textiles for furniture, drapes and fashion.” – New Designers Online.

New Designers Online Matt Smith – “Matt juxtaposes the permanence of clay with the fleeting coincidenses of day dreams to produce charming and whimsical vessels and wall pieces.” – New Designers Online.

New Designers Online Helen Gallogly – “Helen produces highly decorative, hand drawn and embroidered textiles, inspired by 17th/18th century wallpapers and botanical illustrations. Products include, furniture throws and bespoke chair coverings.” – New Designers Online.

    ASOG – Hi! And nice to see you!! :)
    sofia – You’re welcome!

    ND – True. Yet the designers I blogged about haven’t been written about on other design blogs before because they are brand new designers that just listed on the site, so while New Designers Online isn’t breaking news, the emerging talent that I’ve featured are quite exciting. :)

    Victoria E – You are most welcome, and thank you for stopping by. I haven’t seen your name before.
