We were asked by London Metropolitan University to set a live brief for their Illustration course. We tasked the students in creating a visual language for All Lovely Stuff by looking at the existing collection and visual language and start to play.

Here is the second response to the project we wanted to share.

Ann Philippas’ work is based on our Bear Faced Mirrors:

We were asked by London Metropolitan University to set a live brief for their Illustration course. We tasked the students in creating a visual language for All Lovely Stuff by looking at the existing collection and visual language and start to play.

We want to show some of our favourites and over the next few weeks, we’re going to post some of the students’ work as a thank you.

First up is Sophie Knowles, who used our Animals of Whittling Wood collection as inspiration:

We think her beautifully drawn characters are especially lovely. If you agree and would like to keep up to date with Sophie’s work, you can find it on her website

Thanks Sophie, truly lovely.

Ulmer Schachtel

Boats have always interested me, however the Ulmer Schachtel has a special meaning.

This type of boat – which originated in Ulm, Germany – was first used in the middle ages for transporting goods down the Danube. Then in the 17th and 18th century the boats became useful for transporting people and conquering new lands. Now, they are used mainly for tourists, fishing and leisure.

There are no oars on this traditional flat-bottomed inland boat, but instead two rudders at either end are used to control the boat’s passage downstream.

Once a year everyone celebrates this Ulm icon with a national holiday. The boats are decorated and floated downstream in procession. Some go as far as the Black Sea, stopping to meet those living in Bulgaria, Romania, Slovenia, and Croatia en route.

Ulmer Schatchel

The Ulmer Schachtel reminds me of home!

Max is originally from Ulm, Germany and now lives and works in London. When Max is not folding boats he designs products and furniture.

Dinosaws in the Jungle

Look out for some truly lovely new images taken by Jack Barnes, photographer and friend of All Lovely Stuff.

He has taken time out of his busy schedule to create some really great images of the Dinosaladservers, Beesnees and some new products that are on their way very soon.

When Jack isn’t taking photos of the famous he adds to his collection of delightful digits // ‘We one thousand’ // on a beautiful, simple site that catalogues Jack and his friends’ efforts to collect images of the numbers one to one thousand.

As part of showing with Dezeen at the Interiors Show Birmingham, we were asked to make a video introducing our company. Carl does a great job of explaining the various uses of our ‘Christ That’s Hot’ multi-purpose crucifix, among other products.

Moose on the Loose

January is looking set to be a busy month for All Lovely Stuff.

Our new products will be on show at the Top Drawer exhibition at the Spotted stand from Sunday 15 to 17 Jan, at Earl’s Court. We’re one of 12 design businesses chosen by Charlotte Abraham to feature at this retail trade event, which attracts independent shops and department stores from all over the UK.

Birmingham Interiors

Later in the month you can come and see us at the Interiors Show at the Birmingham NEC from 22-25 January. It’s the UK’s largest interiors trade exhibition and we’ve been asked to show with Dezeen.

And finally we’ll be returning to Maison & Objet, Paris, from 20-24 January. We experienced in September that this show is full of great exhibitors and is fast becoming Europe’s most relevant show.
