Today, Lucy and Laura went down to CUBE gallery to check out the fantastic exhibition MAKERS contemporary craft and design for interiors.
Featuring work from designer makers from all over the North the exhibition includes furniture, ceramics, lighting, textiles and decorative art and accessories. We have included a few of our favourites to show you here.
Looking forward to a trip to New York in a few weeks time, Lucy was excited to find this fabulous range of fabrics and Wallpapers inspired by the city – the designer taking inspiration from the urban landscape giving the texture, colour and atmosphere.
We loved these ‘Bethy’ wine tables by Gabler furniture, and like all the pieces we saw today they are custom made to requirements, we love the orange one!
Here is Laura’s favourite piece, the table is made from the most beautiful wood in a stained grey ‘Chinchilla’ finish with slate legs, we think it is absolutely amazing!
It is really refreshing to find an exhibition such as Makers in Manchester and great to see a showcase of the North’s finest designers and makers. We saw lots of product today that we would love to include in future Curve projects and we really hope to work with some of the designers to create bespoke pieces for our clients.
We were able to meet and have a chat with curator Janine Fishwick and find out a bit more about her passion for putting MAKERS together and congratulate her on the success of the project … If you have time to get down to CUBE before the end of Saturday please go along as it is WELL worth seeing.
MAKERS is at CUBE gallery, Portland Street, Manchester until 25 May.
