Retailers select top picks of Pulse

Two expert retailers select their top picks of products at upcoming boutique trade show Pulse, which is schedule to take place May 14-16 in London

Pulse, the boutique trade event, scheduled to take place from May 14-16 at London Olympia. The beautifully curated trade event has a special emphasis on emerging makers, inspiring new gifts, modern living and cutting-edge fashion accessories.

Two expert retailers have selected their top picks of products at Pulse, choosing the crème de la crème of new exciting products ready for retail.

The two retail experts are Andrea Bates, the founder of Future and Found, iconic homeware concept store based in London’s Tufnell Park; And Helen Osgerby, founder of Simple Shape, an online retailer which presents an edit of the best British and Irish design from both emerging makers and established craftspeople.

Andrea Bates' (pictured) top picks include the following under the theme Future and Found:

Scout Editions | E21
“Love the cute, naïve but graphic print on a tea towel – makes doing the dishes fun!”

Geo-fleur | F7
“There’s a real trend for plants and pots at the moment so these simple pared back ceramic planters look ideal for a selection of succulents.”

Helen Osgerby's top picks include the following under the theme, Simple Shape:

Anneka Textiles | UAL Now
“Excellent design and styling using end-product or industry waste is exactly what the textile industry has needed for a long time. I really love this wool basket and think it would work in so many different interiors.”

Bohemia Design | G66
“These aren’t a perfect fit for me as Simple Shape only stocks pieces that are designed and made in the UK, but I do think they're brilliant. The colours are great and the design is simple and strong.”
