Kin+Ilk Our first large commission for an independent Coffee Shop happened this week. A large order at very short notice , but we worked long hours and made up a stunning array of colours in our Bud Vases and Tea Light Holders. Kin+Ilk in Cardiff were very pleased and their fund raising event for Gofal went down a storm. The table top flower arrangements looked stunning thanks to FORBESFIELD (see image) .
WEAMO Streamline Doorstop LAke Michigan USA Surfer

We have a glowing review from another very happy customer all the way from Michigan, Grand Rapids, USA.
I bought two of the Weamo Streamline Doorstops and absolutely love them. I had a difficult time finding a simple, modern design so I was thrilled when I found these online. I couldn't find them anywhere in the United States, where I live, so I ordered them from the UK and had to pay a little extra in shipping but it was worth it! They look great in my new home.

Hong_Kong We received a glowing product review from one very happy customer today, all the way from Hong Kong.

"I stumbled across the Weamo website after looking in several shops for a non-plastic and non-goofy doorstop. The doorstops arrived promptly and despite having several differently sized doors, they work perfectly. No more slamming doors! The colour range is vast; allowing me to choose muted ivory for my bathroom doors and the playful red for my kitchen. The wood finish means that the doorstop blends in with ease. Thanks Weamo!"

Jennifer, Hong Kong - WEAMO Streamline Doorstops

Thanks Jennifer hope your enjoying the breeze!!

We did it at long last, a couple of years to be honest. But its well worth the wait. We now have our products in The Baltic Shop 7 in total.

We have recently recieved very high praise indeed from BoConcept as their One to watch 2014. Quote "If you are not familiar with BoConcept, we have over 250 stores in 58 countries around the world, so to be recognised is testament to the excellent work you are doing over at WEAMO". Well we are very proud and thank BoConcept for the recognition. Who knows where we go from here.

Well WEAMO have had a great Christmas present in the form of a fantastic product review by Babyology.
Quote - "More often than not I find that furniture designed for little ones screams `kid’s furniture’ through garish patterns and poor quality materials. It’s here Babyology readers that we can breathe a united sigh of relief with the ...world that is Weamo."

More great news.
We have also got our Kids Stools in a more alternative furniture shop in Darlington this time, Drum Furniture.
