New Found Original

I was recently in touch with the guys behind new online shop New Found Original and love what they do. The online shop, set up by Jo Murray and Dominic Bell, sells a carefully selected and ever-changing collection of graphic products – tempting to both graphics junkies and normal people alike.

Folksy love-in: Hopper and Space

Chairs, £595 Until this morning I always browsed on Folksy for sweet, crafty, handmade things like finger puppets, placemats or soap – never  believing it to be the place for big, proper, impressive furniture.

People we’re loving: Lee Broom

Birmingham-born designer Lee Broom proved a talented creative from a young age – starting off as a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company at the age of just 16. By 17, he had won a design contest run by the Clothes Show, off the back of which he spent 6 months interning with Vivienne Westwood […]
