Big Blue Company - treasures from coral reefs reclaimed as objets d’art because they inspire timelessly.
There's something about Nature's bounty that makes you want to incorporate it seamlessly into your home. For thousands of years, the treasures from coral reefs - namely giant clams, corals and shells - have been reclaimed as objets d’art because their infinite variety in shape, colour, and pattern timelessly inspires.
We, for one, are obsessed with these wild treasures of the sea, knowing full well that hunting for original, timeless home accessories to bring life to your interior can feel like a never ending mission.
But there’s a catch (pun intended): our big blue isn’t that big anymore. An insatiable appetite for the ocean's treasures means that coral reefs worldwide are suffering. There might not even be any left in a matter of years if we carry on at this rate.
So that’s where Big Blue Company comes in. Born in 2016, we create beautiful sea inspired pieces that will add organic elegance to your home without exploiting our oceans one little bit. We won’t tell any lies - our products are 100% “ingenuine” artefacts. And proud of it. No blurring of lines with environment compliance certificates and fighting with sustainability boards here.
Our collection of replica giant clams, seashells and corals is crafted from sustainable materials, 3D technology, hand-finished in China and made with our love of the big blue… and several trips with a pair of flippers and a waterproof camera. Big Blue's range of synthetic corals, shells and sea inspired sculptures is remarkably real to not only look at but to feel as well. In short you could make a complete artificial reef from our range or you could just enjoy one of our pieces to dot around your home.
Each piece is a timeless treasure, incorporating the essence of Nature through intelligent design, adding a sensuous touch of wild beauty to your home. We hope you enjoy being the first to know about our collection and look forward to sharing our journey with you.

Adelphi Paper Hangings offers wallpapers that are reproduced using the same hand-printing methods and materials employed circa 1720-1860, after which machine printing methods began to dominate the industry. Our work is based on exhaustive and continuing research into methods, materials, techniques and styles. Each order is individually hand printed by skilled artisans without compromises in quality, historical accuracy or consistency.
Working from original documents that range from an entire wall's worth of antique wallpaper to a modest box of faded, water damaged scraps still attached to chunks of plaster, Adelphi Paper Hangings has successfully reproduced wallpapers which date from the 1740s through the 1930s. By understanding the nature of historic paints, the muting effect of time, as well as the historic context and fashions, Adelphi Paper Hangings can successfully interpret documentary evidence and accurately reproduce the style, character and look of original period documents.
In addition to historic American, French and English patterns from its own extensive collection of original wallpaper documents, Adelphi offers patterns licensed from the archives of Historic New England, The Smithsonian Institution, The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, Old Sturbridge Village, the New York State Historical Association, the Musée du Papier Peint (Rixheim, France), and from many other historic institutions and private collections.
Our commitment to quality, historical accuracy and uncompromised production values are our assurance to customers that Adelphi products are the finest quality block printed papers available on the market today.

ZELOUF+BELL - an intensely personal new modernism, a distillation of what delights and moves, informed by that which came before.
Studio furniture makers ZELOUF+BELL and their team of master craftsmen have been making museum-quality furniture to commission in their workshop in Ireland since 1992. Their award-winning work is in private collections, public offices, embassy residences, churches and museums, at home and abroad.
The alliance of Belfast-born Michael Bell and New Yorker Susan Zelouf may seem a collision of cultures and characters; instead, a kind of alchemy occurs, engendering extraordinary pieces grounded in practicality, a dialogue between art, design and history. “We don’t fit in, but for us that’s a strategy.” Theirs is an intensely personal new modernism, a distillation of what delights and moves them, informed by that which came before. ZELOUF+BELL are represented in New York by Maison Gerard, in Dublin by Solomon Fine Art and in the colourful Parisian showrooms of David Hicks France. The National Museum of Ireland acquired three Zelouf+Bell pieces for the museum's permanent collection.
Recent projects include the redesign of Restaurant Patrick Guilbaud (Ireland's only two star Michelin) and conference furniture for the Department of Enterprise and Employment, Kildare Street, Dublin.Zelouf+Bell garnered two awards at the Architectural Digest Show 2015; Best Decorative Accessory by IFDA (International Furnishing and Design Association) and Best Overall Craftsmanship by Adorno Magazine. Recent articles about their work appeared in Modern Magazine, Financial Times 'How To Spend It', The Sunday Times and The Irish Arts Review.

SAM VAN GURP x ESTHER JONGSMA
VANTOT is the collective title for the works of Esther Jongsma and Sam van Gurp. Both Eindhoven based designers graduated at Design Academy Eindhoven. Operating from The Netherlands VANTOT focuses on autonomous product design and commissioned work.
In 2014, Esther Jongsma (1990, Utrecht) and Sam van Gurp (1990, Breda) launched their own design studio called VANTOT. Esther and Sam both graduated from the Design academy Eindhoven in 2008-2009. Esther is outgoing and looks at her designs from a broad perspective: "I love to work with many people from different disciplines". Besides working on her own design collections, Esther also works as a project manager and coordinator for multiple projects and has already gained considerable experience in the design and realisation of exhibitions. Sam, in many ways, is the polar opposite of Esther and focuses on business development to the tiniest detail. Besides that, he is a real creator and a technician who loves to deal with progressive design questions.
The designs of studio VANTOT all encompass a certain complexity. For example, the pendant lamp series Exploded View and Limpid Lights. These series allow for the adjustment of the intensity of light and colour by moving the light source in the hood. Besides that, there is the Passage Carpet that creates intriguing optical effects by means of an intricate geometric pattern of layered wood as you walk by. According to Sam, who is often inspired by engineering works and ingenious movement mechanisms, the studio likes "to experiment with movement and new interpretations of familiar features". Furthermore, as explained by Esther, VANTOT aims "to involve the user differently”.

Johanna Gullichsen Textile Craft & Design offers an extensive range of woven textiles for modern living. Bold and simple patterns, natural materials, a down to earth sensibility - our style is all about comfort, colour and ease-of-use. Our designs can be combined either with modern or traditional interiors.
Since 1989, we have been committed to honest design and a modern interpretation of Scandinavian textile traditions.
Finnish textile designer, Johanna Gullichsen was born in Somero, southern Finland. Before finding an interest in textiles she studied art history, literature and languages at the University of Helsinki. She then pursued education in the skill of weaving at Porvoo Crafts School.
Gullichsen describes her approach to design: "Handweaving with the loom is my inspiration for exploring techniques and patterns. That's how most of my designs are born. Craft is a living design tool for me, always included in the narrative of my textiles. I am especially interested in the construction of fabrics and I am drawn to technically challenging designs, even though the final product might seem simple. The ready-made products that I design are defined by the fabric itself; by its material or by its pattern."

Designer and owner, Mitri Hourani takes as his maxim Antoine Lavoisier's quote "Nothing is lost, nothing is created, everything is transformed" of the major rules of physics, the idea of a new life. The result, a dramatic and ebullient display of clusters of light, layered tapestries, and creative kitsch.

Born in Prague, Czech Republic in 1994. Between 2009–2013 studied ceramics and porcelain at the College and High art school of Vaclav Hollar. Since 2013 has been studying in the Studio of glass at the Academy of Art Architecture & Design in Prague.
"For me, glass represents basic material as well as the immense source of inspiration. I usually combine it with other materials - most frequently with wood. My intent is to bring harmony between those materials. My aim is to design such products that would inspire other people, evoke their emotions and bring joy into their lives. It is essential for me that people use my designs spontaneously and they like looking at them again and again."
