JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 PLATINUM WINNER: Best Children’s Interiors/Lifestyle Retailer

WHO: POP

WHAT: A curated kids and lifestyle concept store founded by two mums, childrenswear Buyer Carly and designer Sophie who met on maternity leave. The store showcases toys, gifts and books from an array of exciting independent brands and small businesses with an emphasis on sustainability.

WHY: We loved the fresh, creative design of the Pop website and the fantastic selection of gifts, toys and clothes  – the book selection in particular was a huge draw. We also loved the fact that the team at Pop organize community events and activities. The Ultimate Teddy Bears’ Picnic, POP Art & Play, and the POP Christmas Markets sound like great fun!

Some fab brands here.

Gorgeous pieces from Maileg, Liewood, Sleepy Doe and Bobo Choses had everyone cooing and we loved the attention to detail. That every order is gift wrapped in tissue with branded stickers, including seasonal sweetie treats is testament to the love that goes into every step of running this online store.

Home to so many beautiful brands, this website is definitely a one stop shop.

WHO: Acorn & Pip

WHAT: A lifestyle brand that aims to create a welcoming, playful retail experience both in-store and online. Stocking stylish products for the whole family from clothes to décor with a particular eye for beautiful design teamed with longevity and ethical production.

Yes please!) to their interesting and informative blog posts.
