“New, new, new, that is the mantra at Pulse this year”
This May, over 500 brands will be joining the show at Earls Court, providing a one-stop shop for stunning new products across home, gift, fashion and accessories. With over 10 years’ experience in the design market, Pulse attracts and serves the needs of thousands of retailers year on year.
Current trends show that retailers today are buying little and often, thus making Pulse the perfect opportunity to sourcebrand new products from a mix of established brands and up-and-coming designer makers at London’s only summer design-led gift event,
“First Peek” is the theme of Pulse 2014, providing you with the opportunity to be the first to discover never-before-seen products, future trends and the latest market insight to make your store stand out.
Aesop have opened in Marylebone High Street in London with a simple and inventive interior and window scheme.
I love the simple wooden ladder system they have used both for shopfitting and in the window, it really is simple but very effective and ajustable. It lets the product be the hero.
The first thing that greets you on entering the store is an amazing array of fresh flowers which look and smell fabulous, its lovely to see a retailer doing this rather than instantly hitting you with special offers or buy me messages.
As usual their team members are very friendly and have superb product knowledge.
Loving all these fabulous upcycled and Urban vintage fixtures ideas from Andy Thornton.
