Get set for Spring Fair @Home

Housewares buyers looking for fresh new products and inspiration will be joining Spring Fair @Home from their desks (or sofas) from Monday to Wednesday next week (February 8-10). In addition to the Virtual Showrooms, the Product Showcase (featured each of the three days) includes the Living Edit, with its ‘editor’s pick of the top 10 homewares and lifestyle brands, and the new products they are in love with’.

T&G is one of the brands featured in the hour long Living Edit (Monday 10-11am, or Tuesday and Wednesday at 11am- 12 noon). Its raft of new ranges include Friends & Family, which is “inspired by recent events but rather than dwelling, celebrating all that has been positive about this last year,” reflects T&G’s head of marketing Jenny Handley. “That feeling of being apart and missing loved ones is a new phenomena to us all, but the strength of ‘Friends & Family’ has shone through.” The company is also launching ranges of woodware for home bakers and for pet lovers, as well as promoting its personalised laser engraved products for retailers’ bespoke woodware.

Meanwhile DMD’s new teaware range addresses trends in the home, with more people enjoying their tea breaks at home. The number of UK adults now tea drinkers has risen to 86%, according to the UK Tea and Infusions Association, and over half of younger adults in its recent survey have increased their tea intake during lockdown.

DMD’s new Pressed Flowers range is a delicate floral decorated collection of porcelain teaware and Home accessories. Mindlful of demand for products to enhance the home, DMD is also launching a range of Home fragrance products including ceramic oil burners and reed diffuser sets with oils that are made in the UK.

Rob Blackburn, DMD’s director of sales and sourcing says: “Following what has been a very difficult year for everyone we are really please that our design team and product development teams have been able to bring together a raft of new products for 2021. It’s a shame we can’t see our customers at the moment and we will miss them at the Spring Fair. However we have put together a show reel for our new products, which also include more in our Artisan and Bee Happy collections.” Follow DMD’s link

The three days of Spring Fair also includes exclusive presentations on trends, social media and other hot topics, plus the presentation if the Gift of The Year Awards and The Good Retail Awards.
