PRESS RELEASE 23.11.18.
RYE&MOOR, HANDMADE BRITISH FURNITURE & TEXTILES CO’ SELECTED FOR SPOTTED 2019
Rye&Moor is delighted to be handpicked for Spotted 2019, at Top Drawer January 13-15, Kensington Olympia - the UK’s leading design led lifestyle trade show.
Designed and made exclusively by Rye&Moor. R&M’s contemporary collection of Furniture, Textiles & Prints, handmade in England will feature at Top Drawer’s new design showcase ‘Spotted’.
Now established as one of Top Drawer’s main attractions, Spotted has helped over 100 fledgling businesses - including Above & Beyond, Bhavin Taylor, The City Works, The Curious Department, Georgia Bosson, Lara Quinn, Laura Spring, Lomas & Lomas, Lorna Syson, Nicola Taylorson, and Space la Design - make their all-important trade show debut.
R&M, who’s co-founders Lucy & Alex live in Lewes & Ilkley (thank goodness for Whatsapp!) collaborate from their respective homes amongst the Downs and the Moors to create elegant, uncomplicated, useful pieces, featuring their own contemporary fabric designs, specifically chosen & artworked per piece, their founding principle is to deliver a collection of remarkable items made for modern living.
Walter, a thoughtfully made, simply designed two seat bench, upholstered in R&M’s own signature designs, was the very first collection developed by R&M. In 2017, Walter, was joined by Scrippy, Valerie, Arnie, Gertrude & Anne, and in 2018 by Billy, Digs, Hux & Ham, a range of timeless, functional furniture and textiles, designed and crafted in England for everyday homes and life. It doesn't stop there; as well as handmade upholstered benches and stools, the stunning fabrics appear on washbags, prints and cushions. These beautiful pieces are all named after Alex and Lucy's grandparents but are far from old fashioned.
Tasked with the tricky job of making selects from their current collection to feature on their Spotted Stand SP411 – Alex exclaims “The trouble is we want to share it all - we love the monochromes, but the blushes are just so pretty, and then the sun shines and we want to shake out the blues ….!” Lucy agrees adding “obviously Walter wants to come, so do Gert and Anne, we’ll want to put our feet up on Arnie, which will make it hard to leave Valerie behind ….Decisions, decisions …”
