Online Shop of the week - Seed

(Laura Thomas)

SEED, was formed by Sinead Foley, who gave up her day job in Fashion to create this online gallery. SEED was established with the aim of providing emerging artists and designers with a unique, online platform to showcase their talent and to sell their early works. It gives like-minded consumers the chance to discover something new and different from some of the UK’s newest and hottest names.

As the high-street forces consumers to become increasingly mainstream, Sinead believes there is a counter trend whereby consumers are looking for something unique, something with substance- a story and a history. It’s exciting to be buying affordable design products which might have been created by a future star in the making.

SEED collaborates with a carefully selected group of designers and artists – currently including, art, interior furnishings, ceramics, glassware, sculpture and jewellery. Current artists include, Lucy Bainbridge, Katherine Jones, James Ryan, Laura Thomas, Caroline Saul, Sue Foley, Dayle Green, Jayne Lucas, Anne Morgan and Arscene Vali.

The range continues to expand to ensure all talents and disciplines are encompassed and most importantly, offer products which are not widely available. Most of the artists accept commissions, so totally unique pieces can be created to suit personal requirements.
