The Independent Interiors Show, Saturday 28th September, 2022NQ, Manchester

I decided to stop off and check out the Independent Interiors Show on the way back from Yoga class this morning, held at 2022NQ.

They had a nice mix of exhibitors on show and an hour into opening it was already bustling with activity and demos. 

There were some gorgeous flamingo cushions made from antique tapestry which I wanted so badly from Eclectic Chair stand, which featured lots of uber kitsch vintage textile prints 

I also really liked the Caslon & Co stand. They make soft furnishings and linens using antique printing blocks with clean geometric patterning (

I bumped into one of the lovely contributors to the recent Pretty Nostalgic feature 'Let the Light In' who was showcasing her Radiance lighting collection (

And received a lovely wallpaper sample from Claire Murray (

There were some wonderful items on the Flitty Bird stand, including the most adorable ceramic bunny necklaces by And Mary ( not interior stuff I know but cute non the less!) I've since been looking at the Flitty Bird website and there are some great products and brands on there (

The highlight for me were the Helaina Sharpley wire sculptures in particular the impressive townscape that came of the wall. They had a beautifully fragile quality to them, and a certain vintage feel with the chosen subject matter of other pieces being teacups, spoons and clocks.


All in all a great event filled with wonderful local makers and designers!
