January is a busy month in the world of interiors and our design studio. The new furniture and homewares collections are launched for S/S '13 by our suppliers across the globe, and at international interiors trade fairs around the world. So our buying team are busy preparing to attend the trade shows, to view the new collections of our existing suppliers, but more excitingly, to find new ones to bring to our discerning Occa-Home customers. First up is Home London and Top Drawer on the 13-15th Januray, the definitive retail and contract event of homewares, housewares and interior accessories. There we'll be meeting some of our established suppliers like Eva Solo, Ferm Living and Nick Munro to view their new collections, as well as some of our newer suppliers like Wireworks and Emma Bridgewater.
Following on, there's IMM Cologne from the 14th-20th January, which is essentially much more designer furniture orientated and provides our buying team with trend inspiration for future seasons collections and an insight into European interior styles and companies. Phew... whilst it's busy... and very hard on the feet, attending the shows is just part of what we do to bring you the very best in interior design with the convenience of online shopping 24/7. Watch out for the new Spring collections... we think you'll love them!
