Rachel Powell @ Tent London 2012

I loved Rachel Powell's stand at Tent London, from the etched veneer lamp shades to the funky wallpaper. It was so neat & tidy and wonderfully styled with vintage furniture and wooden flowers! Rachel Powell is a surface pattern designer who designs charming modern prints with a retro twist.

After initially completing a BA Hons in packaging and branding Rachel returned to university years later to study Surface Design at the London College of Communication. Upon graduating in 2011 Rachel was picked to exhibit at the New Designers show (the UK's most important graduate show). After being received so well at the show last year Rachel hasn't looked back and this year she returned to the New Designers show exhibiting in the "one year on" section. Inspired by mid-century design and her country life, Rachel's prints are happy, bold, retro repeats that have an air of Scandinavia about them. Her prints can be found on rolls of wallpaper, tea towels, and etched lampshades.

Have a sweet day!
