We were truly honoured (and rather nervous) to be chosen by the fabulous Liberty of London to attend their open call for designers last weekend. We had entered our Mayfair console table at the application stage back in December and were thrilled to have had a response just before Christmas.
There was a lot of prep to be done beforehand, including the designing and printing of wholesale brochures and the writing and perfecting of our pitch, but it was amazingly exciting.
The day itself was incredible from start to finish. We arrived at 8am, which was a good idea, as the queue of designers was growing fast. Luckily, we were only outside in the cold for an hour or so and before we knew it, we were registering and then seated and waiting to be called in.
We met with two of the buyers as well as the amazing and charismatic Mr. Ed Burstell himself, which was a pretty mind-blowing experience. Everyone was friendly and lots of questions were asked about our tables and about our range of tiles.
We were very happy that they kept hold of our brochures and took our business cards. Now it's a case of watching this space to find out whether we will be invited back for a more in-depth discussion with the buying team.
