‘PATTERNS WITH A STORY’ TOLD IN PRINT
Mark Hampshire and Keith Stephenson launched Mini Moderns 10 years ago and it is now one of Britain’s coolest homeware brands. They describe their work as “pattern with a story”, with influences ranging from mid-century modern design and vintage toys to literature, telly and childhood memories.
Their prints are now applied to everything from wallpapers, fabrics and rugs to ceramics, candles and even radios.
Whitby, featuring coble boats and choppy seas, came out in 2011 and is their best-selling design.
They have a legion of fans and their products are stocked by John Lewis and top independent stores. They also sell from their own website. minimoderns.com
