Following on from our previous blog, ‘finding the perfect match – part one’ this takes takes us on to part two, and the intro to two new super lampshade designers.
What has also been exciting for Annie and Anna about this whole process is that we asked each designer to photograph the siphon base and shades in their own home interior. This shows the lamps in a lovely variety of interior spaces which creates a different look, mood and feel. That is what we love about interiors as it makes it each space totally different and unique…..

How we met?
Annie: I met Kate in 2000 at the NEC Spring Fair. We were both in the world of publishing, designing greetings cards, wrapping paper and other gift stationery. We happily propped each other up with countless cups of coffee and bars of chocolate whilst standing for hours on end at the shows. Our paths then took us off in different directions for a few years until just recently, when I happened to come across Kate’s instagram account, and her gorgeous textiles and prints. Instantly Anna and I saw a wonderful opportunity to collaborate together. We feel that Kate’s work really connects with AB Design and Interiors’ ethos. A super play of colour combinations, texture and pattern.
At the back of last week I ended up going on a fleeting visit to Budapest with a lovely client, sourcing tiles… Budapest hadn’t been on my radar particularly and least of all for tiles but much to my surprise I fell in love with both the city and the 80kilos of tiles we brought home with us!!
Last week was a busy one particularly as we were trying to catch a couple of exhibitions before they close and while also making a whistle stop tour of London Craft Week, all in one day!READ MORE
Finally after many months of no posts, hours of laughter, lots of cups of coffee, several bottles of wine and some sleepless nights, this is the moment I have been waiting for….. a formal introduction to Annie, my new business partner. It is an understatement to say just how excited we are for what lies ahead.READ MORE
