A couple of months ago I had a telephone conversation with Jessica from Mockbee & Co. I wanted to know more about what Mockbee & Co. did as I was very impressed with their wallpaper samples that I had received. We discussed at length the luxury end of the interior design market in the UK and just how challenging it can be for young designers to ‘break into’ that market. Mockbee & Co’s passion is to help young designers break into this lucrative market.
A direct result of that conversation ended up with me being so inspired by the work that Mockbee & Co do for British design, that I went ahead and set up the Great British Interior Design Pinterest Group to do my bit at showcasing British design.
Jessica and Lorenzo Lozano set up Mockbee & Co. to work in partnership with new designers to develop a product/product range that fits the Mockbee & Co. house style. These products could be existing products that the designers have and are slightly changed, but are also sometimes entirely new ranges created for Mockbee & Co.
These products are made to the highest standard in the UK and Mockbee & Co. then take the products to market via their website and trade contacts.
What I think is so great about Jessica and Lorenzo, is that their whole business is geared around firstly helping talented young designers break into the difficult luxury market, but also they are promoting British design and British manufacturing. Showing that yes, it can be done!
Mockbee & Co’s latest collection of wallpapers has been inspired by the Dulux Colour of the Year 2016 which is ‘Cherished Gold’.
Here are some of my favourite designs from their range.
