February / New Horizons WELOVECUSHIONS

 

09 February 2018

Delighted to announce that PRickle is working with two new clients for the Spring time , Artsy Doormats and designer-make group Collective Invites.  Look out for more information soon.

 

2018 so far has been great! Perkins & Morley’s newest collection ‘HUGG’ has been showcased in LandLove Magazine whilst WELOVECUSHIONS have appeared in  Coast, Homestyle, Your Home  & Homes & Antiques’ March issues.  We particularly love the Tulip Cushion (pictured) which was in Country Living and which is making us hanker for Spring time.

December / Let it Snow. WELOVECUSHIONS

 

24 December 2017

Wow! The Christmas season has just flown by and our clients have been in lots of Christmas Gift Guides! Just call us Father Christmas.

 

Clockwork Soldier’ beautiful gifts for children and those who are young at heart were seen in YOU Magazine, Metro, The Observer Magazine and a special feature on the Daily Mail Online about plastic free Christmas presents.

 

WELOVECUSHIONS’ Robert Gillmor cushions graced the This Morning set throughout the whole of their pre-Christmas line up, and further Christmas inspiration could be drawn from a front cover placement on Homes & Antiques (January issue) and the Metro.

 

The big YAY though goes to Perkins & Morley’s Collective Noun Calendar  (pictured) which got product placement in the coveted Guardian Weekend gift guide.  The response was phenomenal with the company achieving over £3k worth of sales in the first two days and the calendar needing to be reprinted twice!

WELOVECUSHIONS - The 'Kew Station' Deckchair appeared in the IndyBest Top 10 Deckchairs, the 'Whitley Bay' cushion coasted along in the Metro, Period Living (Sept 2017) featured an RHS Roses cushion as a part of a get the look and finally we stomped officially into Autumn with Country Living (Sept 2017) featuring the beautiful 'Stubble Hare' cushion by Robert Gillmor.

 

Shimmerwalls - It was UGG's all round with the promotion of Shimmerwalls' recent project for the international brand in the USA & Canada. The 'Sparkling, Please' visual merchandising appeared in the B2B press of Retail Focus, Retail Design World, A1 Retail Magazine (July 2017 - PG.22) and Retail Design Blog.  There was also a small matter of event sparkle for WaterAid's 'The Toilet of Dreams' at Glastonbury and some great 'LOVE' and 'PRIDE' shimmer in Brighton and Cannes for the PRIDE festivals (see inset pic).

A lot of press has happened here at PRickle HQ recently:

 

Chimineashop.co.uk have appeared in regional magazines SO, Voice and Welsh Coastal Life with an estimated reach of 9k+ readers across the three titles.  Plus as part of our PRickle Social package we organised a competition between BBC Gardener's World and chimineashop.co.uk to promote the new 2017 ranges - the competition drew over 8k+ entries to win the two Gardeco Ison Ball Fire Pits, with strong SEO links back to chimineashop.

 

WELOVECUSHIONS - Announcing their continued collaboration with the Tate, WELOVECUSHIONS' newest licensed collection 'Russian Revolution' appeared in the B2B press of licensing.biz, Licensing Global & Licensing Source.  Whilst in the consumer press WLC have been in Ideal Home, Prima, Spirit & Soul, HomeStyle, Period Ideas and Modern Gardens magazines.

 

Perkins & Morley - It's been notebook central this last month with National Stationery Week and National Notebook Day.  Perkins & Morley's cheeky seal notebook has proved a winner with  both Bambinos Goodies and Uni-Ball UK selecting it as one of their top notebooks.  We were also delighted to see LandLove magazine (June issue)  do a highlighted snapshot of the brand in the Village Shop section and focus on their Wild Wood Collection.

There's no two ways about it January and February are Trade Show Seasons, with clients launching new collections and products to their respective sectors both in the UK and in Europe.

 

PRickle has been helping support Shimmerwalls and WELOVECUSHIONS by ensuring that trade customers and key influencers in the interiors sector are aware of the fantastic products on offer and to sway them over to their stands at each trade show.

 

So what's new?

 

... Shimmerwalls launched at Maison & Objet their new 'Mirror Walls' VM system - it takes sequin wall visual merchandising to a whole new level, with laser cut acrylic mirrors replacing the traditional film sequins, thereby allowing for larger and more dramatic  glass-like displays of shimmer.  The new system will have its first official UK launch at the VM & Display Show in April.

 

...WELOVECUSHIONS officially launched three new licensed ranges at Top Drawer (London) - 'Bowie by Iconic Images', the 'Victor Pasmore' collection and the 'Robert Gillmor' collection - all very different, and all, exclusive licenses to them.  Look out for more coverage soon as the press feature them in the next couple of months.

 

Finally coverage has been gained in the following magazines - Modern Gardens, Period Living (twice over two consecutive months), Stella,  Progressive Gifts and Home, Licensing Sourcebook (Europe), Good Housekeeping & The English Garden. PHEW... and we're only in February!
