Bob’s Your Uncle (NYIGF)

February 7, 2007

Bob’s Your Uncle sent a photo of their booth from the NYIGF last week, which was fun to look at – I spot melamine plates!

Bob's Your Uncle (NYIGF)Founded in Boston by English couple Michele and Martin Yeeles, Bob’s Your Uncle is an old British expression meaning “Everything’s Fine”. Cute fact, huh? I guess that is how you always want to appear when working – calm, carefree, no worries. Beneath the surface though, you haven’t slept in days and you’re stressed to the max.

I love the folders marked “Limbo” and the cute honey bear melamine plates. Their kids placemats are cute because they’re packaged as tear off sheets and each one has a recipe on it written by a child (those are not new, but I like them just the same). If you’d like to shop for their products online, here’s a list of online stores for you to choose from.

Simplemente Blanco (NYIGF)

February 5, 2007

Do you remember Fernanda Bourlot, founder/designer of Simplemente Blanco in Boston’s South End? I interviewed her last summer for decor8 (click here to see that and to tour her studio). She showed her products at the NYIGF last week and sent in some stunning booth photos to share with decor8 readers. I love her style, and how she manages to make white so warm and inviting, especially in a tiny booth at a trade show! If you’re interested in her collection, please visit her website. Click on any image below to enlarge it.
