Round up from The Big Design Market

Safari Fusion blog | Round up from The Big Design Market | Safari Fusion's super colourful stand styled by Julia Green from Greenhouse Interiors
With the Christmas and New Year craziness over I have had some time to reflect on our participation in The Big Design Market last December.

It was fabulous talking to so many people who were interested to learn more about our pieces, thank you to those who stopped by to say hello and introduce themselves.

Our Bamileke Feather Headdresses were capturing the hearts of many ladies, the chaps loved our Peacock Blue wire Impala Head whilst our stack of Zulu Isicholo Hats kept everyone intrigued trying to guess what they were.

My favourite find was Emily Green's beautiful bead necklaces (I have worn them all summer so far!) whilst my husband could not stop talking about Mavericks Laces, so much so that Santa actually gifted him a colourful selection.

Finally a big thank you for Julia Green from Greenhouse Interiors and intern Emma for creating the colourful Safari Fusion space at the market.
