Rococo’s Real Hen, Seagull and Quails Eggs get New Look for Easter

Chantal Coady has designed some Easter fineries for their popular Real Hen Eggs, Seagull Eggs and Quail eggs.  In true tradition the packing is quirky, eye catching and amusing.

 Oh we do like to be beside the seaside!

 The Superior Seagull Eggs are made of gooey salted caramel and chocolate ganache; all wrapped up in dark and milk chocolate layers inside a thin sugar shell. They’re the perfect gift for the rucksack of an intrepid twitcher out on a cliff-top mission, and we can’t think of a better snack for bringing extra cheer to a seaside holiday (or for pretending you’re on one).

They retail at £6.95 and weigh 150g

The pretty little Quail Eggs are made from a fine French hazelnut praline, dipped in milk chocolate then coated with a thin sugar shell (using natural colours, of course). Perfect for a summer picnic or to keep your friends amused – put a bowl of Quail eggs and our Olive Toscane out as they sip their cocktails and see who you can trick!

They retail at £6.96 and weigh 145g


And The Real Hens Eggs are not left out; they have a beautiful new wrapper with serving suggestions.  Real Hens’ Eggs (eggbox of six) blown and filled with hazelnut praline. The melted hen’s eggs are perfect served with grissini soldiers. And full instructions of how to do it comes with the pack – a very special way to “go to work on an egg”.

£22.50 for a box of six 240g

Rubbie Wins Lighting Award

The fixture awarded was the bollard, Rubbie, from Louis Poulsen designed by Peter Bysted. Both the LED solution, the design and not least the texture of the product was the reasons for the nomination and the price. The bollard is made of rubber.

This year, the introduction of Dragon’s Den-style judging for the product categories created a new level of difficulty for those companies brave enough to enter. And, as ever, all of the shortlisted entries in the project categories were judged in situ. As a result, the winner could be in no doubt how hard the competition was, and why their work achieved the highest honour.

Ben Cronin, Editor of Lighting commented:
“The Lighting Design awards continue to showcase the best of the lighting industry. This year the judges found it more difficult than ever to separate some extremely strong entries. We have been overwhelmed by the number and quality of the projects and products submitted this year, which speaks volumes for the health of the lighting industry”.

Louis Poulsen is very honoured by the price. Being a winner in such a strong competition means that the work is worth doing. All the small details that you have used endless numbers of hours to solve the right way seems now suddenly worth every minute. Also winning in UK is special for Louis Poulsen. We know that the competition on the UK market is extremely tough, and being able to put a product on the market with this response is the best start it can get.

Montana Wardrobe


Icons of Denmark is pleased to introduce the new Montana Wardrobe to the UK – a flexible modular system which allows you to express your own style. Montana Wardrobe is a completely new concept that breaks with the traditional idea of a wardrobe as a closet or a space for storing clothes and shoes.


The philosophy behind Montana Wardrobe is that a wardrobe shouldn’t just occupy an entire wall; it should give you the freedom to arrange your home in your own personal manner, maintaining the depth and height of the room and giving it character. Castors can be put under the units to create a mobile wardrobe; it can be placed on a plinth or legs, or hung on the wall to create more lightness and depth.

Montana Wardrobe is a well-considered design consisting of five units that can be combined and built together according to desires and needs. Various components with exquisite details can be added to help keep order and harmony throughout. And Montana’s extensive colour palette allows you to express your personal style.

 Montana Wardrobe’s flexible concept is built on Montana’s extensive experience of creating a synthesis of forms, styles and functionality, and can be used with Montana’s other products.

Lloyd Loom of Spalding Goes Green

Lloyd Loom of Spalding’s All Weather Collection is now available in a new colour: a subtle Tea Green which is just perfect for the English “Country Garden”. The subtle Tea Green look fresh and natural and is a welcome addition to the existing colours: whitewash, mocha and Antique Natural.

The All Weather Lloyd Loom collection is woven from Rehau Cord.  The furniture is fully UV resistant, weather proof and can be used inside or outdoors.  Many  of the customer’s favourites from their original range are now available in the All Weather Collection.

“We believe that our manufacturing process is unique. Our chair frames are produced from high quality aluminium or galvanised steel. The Lloyd Loom look is achieved by weaving together strands of synthetic material to emulate the twisted paper of our traditional material . Each vertical strand in the warp, also contains a stainless steel wire just like the traditional Lloyd Loom material” explains Julie Davenport, Managing Director of Lloyd Loom of Spalding.
