Ideal Home Show 2014
With the big build up to the fantastic Ideal Home show, it doesn’t seem possible that it’s all over with and we’re already back in the office!!
What an experience it’s been, our Vintage theme was loved by so many, our gorgeous little picture frames were a huge success and were flying out, along with our fabulous mirrors. The ever popular shabby chic and vintage styles which are very much in, made for an amazing show for us all here at Ayers and Graces.
We met some amazing people selling fabulous products along the way too, Loftcat Home were exhibiting with beautiful furniture and accessories, if you love eclectic furniture you must check them out!! With something to suit every home take a browse through their website. We personally love the Gada Distressed dining table and chairs made from reclaimed wood.If you’re into the ever popular distressed shabby chic finish you’ll definitely love this too!!
The guys at 1 Wall opposite brought fun, chocolate and a cheeky vino which made the days even more enjoyable!! They were crowded with people trying to get a peek at their brilliantly designed wallpaper murals! Perfect for creating an eye catching feature wall! From the fab world map, to comic strips and New York scenes they had something for everyone. You have to see how fab they are for yourself so pop onto their website! !
Peter Andre also had a stand at the show supporting The Peter Andre Foundation which raises vital funds for Cancer Research UK. Peter was this years sponsor of the ideal home show which gave room for great promotion of such an important charity.
We were so EXCITED to be asked to lend Peter! Yes Peter Andre! one of our Black Traditional Picture Frames. He used our frame for his demonstration to show off his makeover skills!! With 100s of people crowded round the stage ready for Pete to make his appearance, we were brimming with excitement! He demonstrated spraying the frame, whilst we stood watching from the audience. He even spoke of Ayers and Graces and our fabulous products so we were thrilled to bits : ) Watch this space as we’ll be adding some pics soon!
The frame then came back to us signed by the man himself!! Now that was soo worth a lend!!! Sadly we didn’t manage to snap a photo of Pete in our huge Monaco frame, although lots of you have posted your pictures on facebook and twitter. Why not pop over and have a peak! One lucky winner with the most ‘Likes’ or ‘Retweets’ will be chosen to win a fabulous little Picture frame!!
