TuinIdee Brabanthallen Den Bosch 21-24 February 2019
Just a quick reminder that we'll be in Den Bosch these coming days.
We're not only bringing our Flower Constellations and Waterworks-sets, we'll also be trying out our very own line of plantable postcards and giftlabels as well as new seed-package labels. I've had a lot of fun designing these, so i hope they'll be well-received. Fingers' crossed!
And that's not even all of it: Visitors to the fair will get a very first sneak peak pf the new Flower Constellations Helios (for pits and bulbs) and Ophiuchus (for larger vases and bigger stems)
OBJECT Rotterdam has come and gone and it was super fun to be part of, and we met many wonderful people and sold quite a few Flower Constellations and Waterworks-sets and got great reactions in response to our ReCabinet and new Wren & Kiwi lamps, and we'll definitely be back next year, and we didn't take enough photo's but here are a few shots of the weekend, and you should have been there.
That's it. Bye.

We participated in the MKB Export Award 2018 and are part of the Top 9!
The MKB Export Award is organised for the 6th year in a row by TNT Netherlands, The Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO.nl) and Royal Organisation MKB-Nederland. Of the more than 100 contestants, the Jury nominated us and 8 other companies. The winner will be revealed during the event 'Klaar voor de start? Export! ("Ready? Get set! Export!) on Tuesday March 19th 2019.
Who knows, we might be succeeding last years' winner Anne Pleun van Eijsden of 'On the Rocks' and go home with the prize: amongst others a transport cheque and business partner scan!
It all started with our participation in the Paris fair Maison&Objet last September, for which we applied for an Export Mission Voucher.
After the fair we got invited to join the MKB Export Award, and since we really think we can conquer the world with our Flower Constellations and can use a little boost to get us going, we applied.
In January we received a phonecall from the organization surprising us with the news we're on the shortlist! Early February we got to show a small part of the jury around House of Thol headquarters, and tell them all about our designs, projects and plans for the future. We had a lovely chat, as i'm sure they had with all other eight nominees.
Now all that's left to do is wait..... With our fingers crossed... We'll keep you posted!
Last week we asked what you thought should be the new Dutch Master Wrapping paper (remember?).
Thank you for your lovely response! I'd love to say it was a tight race, but Amrosius Bosschaert won by a mile. Only a few respondees preferred the Dutch classic by van Gogh. A few examples of your reactions:
"Although the blue and yellow of Vincent are eye catching, the painting by Ambrosius suits better with the previous one. Like winter and spring or something... :)"
"Best colors. But the half half version is great too!"
"Less well known and a fresher over-all feeling"

We wasted no time at all getting the new wrapping paper printed. The paper came in right before the weekend and has been added to the Flower Constellations wrapping options in our webshop.
