VIVE Designs, established in 2014 by Textiles Graduate Sarah King to display her work at this years British Craft Trade Fair.

VIVE Designs, the all acryclic homeware brand, will be exhibiting new contemporary Spring/Summer 2016 collection at the British Craft Trade Fair for the first time this year, in the Newcomers gallery. VIVE Designs will be showing the full range of ‘VIVE HOME’ products as well as the ‘VIVE PLAY’ board game collection.

VIVE Designs ‘VIVE HOME’ range has been redesigned with soft spring tones in mind. Aesthetic for this collection focuses on the beauty of strong lines, simple forms and neutral sensibility in the home. This new range of products will be showcased for the first time at the British Craft Trade Fair this April at the Great Yorkshire Showground in Harrogate along with VIVE Designs signature VIVE PLAY board game range.

“The team is looking forward to being part of such a well established and well regarded show that promotes the very best of British craft today” explained Sarah King, founder of VIVE Designs. “I feel the craft industry in Britain is so important, using the skills passed down through generations to produce such unique and valuable objects, a real juxtaposition with generic High Street design. Natural materials dominate the craft industry but I feel man made materials create a bridge between traditional craft and modern design. This is exactly what VIVE Designs do, produce products that incorporate the skilled hand of the maker with a clean contemporary finish.”

The most recent spring/summer 2016 collection was inspired by the beauty of the every day, simple shapes and patterns in the surrounding environment that can be so easily over looked. All products are made by hand in Sarah’s Midlands based studio, with inspiration for each collection coming from several different sources.
