The new SDEA Display Directory is available now free of charge to display buyers and specifiers.
It’s good to be back – and what an issue to start with: the Autumn Fair preview! We have a huge showcase, starting on page 81. So have a flick through, and mark down the stand numbers now to make sure you make the most of your time at the NEC. If you’re travelling to London, we have a Top Drawer Autumn preview on page 61. And if you’re travelling further afield, read all about Bangkok’s STYLE Fair on page 77. Plus, there’s a new show in town! Purify Living will be debuting at the Business Design Centre, Islington, in October – we have the lowdown in our On With The Show pages, so diarise the date and check it out!
With Christmas just around the corner, we also have our Christmas gift guide – Part 2 of two. There’s also a toys & games feature, women’s accessories and, of course, our Brand Spanking New pages – there really are some stunning items out there. I was spoilt for choice as to what to feature!
I look forward to seeing many of you in Birmingham in September. Until then, enjoy the rest of our lovely British summer.

Rachel x aden + anais, the babycare brand widely known for its iconic muslin swaddling, sleeping, feeding and bath time products, is delighted to announce the launch of its new snug fit sleeved sleeping bag this summer, an innovative and stylish sleeping bag designed to help babies (and parents!) enjoy an uninterrupted sleep.
The snug fit sleeved sleeping bag features a modern quilted design with a 1.5 tog comforted weighted cotton fabric with ¾ length sleeves. It mimics the secure feeling of being inside the womb by encouraging a sounder sleep without overheating. Designed with comfort and breathability in mind, the sleeping bag opens from bottom to top, to ensure speedy night-time changes while the innovative sleeved design snugly fits the upper body and arms, making baby feel safe and secure, thereby preventing the startle reflex. The sack structure of the sleeping bag also provides ample leg room for easy movement.
It's available from www.adenandanais.co.uk as well as selected retailers nationwide including Harrods, Selfridges and Natural Baby Shower.
