Each month we highlight some of our favourite boutiques, shops and brands with a edited round-up of our buy-them-before-they-go pieces...
FOUNDERS & DESIGNERS: Judith de Ruijter and Nikki Hateley
AIM: Making Life Lovely
With 7 children between them Judith and Nikki started their Little Lovely adventure in 2014 with a shared passion: to transform ordinary, everyday home and kids room decorations into unique pieces with a personal and creative touch.
This philosophy has led to a unique brand and every Little Lovely product aims for a sense of fun, happiness and that WOW factor - yet with an affordable price tag. Producing over 6 collections a year including a series of ever-popular light boxes, unique word banners, garlands and lighting.
Today, Little Lovely Company is stocked in over 3000 stores including Selfridges, Bonpoint, Le Printemps, El Corte Ingles and MOMA amongst others. Last summer saw them open two Little Lovely flagship stores in the city centre of Groningen, Netherlands. Proving a lovely little dream can become a lovely big reality.
