Tatty Rose, a company which prides itself in the restoration of furniture using recycled and eco-friendly products, brings a new platform to Glasgow for the up-and-coming talent of Scotland’s creative industries to showcase their products in a friendly, supportive environment.
The first furniture pop-up shop is set to take place in the West End of Glasgow on 11th and 12th of October, basing itself in the quaint Willow Bank Bowling Club situated just off Byres Road. The team is inviting the public who are interested in homewares, textiles and furniture to come to the inaugural event, where there will be something for everyone’s taste.
The event will give designers from different creative backgrounds the opportunity to promote their work to the public and other designers within the industry. This platform has been developed to give these budding creative minds the ideal environment to sell their products whilst providing a great networking experience with likeminded individuals.
Founder of the furniture pop-up shop, Sarah Johnstone, says: "Gaining experience in this type of environment is critical to the creative industry, giving individuals starting out on their business the perfect location to promote their talents and sell their products alongside other established businesses – a platform they may not be able to afford on their own."
Local designer Amy, who is delighted to be a part of the first furniture pop-up shop in Glasgow, says: "Sarah approached me about the possibility of joining her and a select team of designers and makers in the pop up furniture shop in Glasgow. As I have just graduated from University, this is an excellent opportunity for me to start up my own brand of interior textiles, Looks Like Lyla. It's been great to be able to converse with makers and designers that are in a similar position as myself and using our new connections we can all build a fantastic creative network around us. I hope that this event will allow me to progress my brand further and in the future I will be able to dedicate more time and focus into making Looks Like Lyla a successful interior textiles and stationery brand."
