March 2015 sees Mason & Painter opening a pop-up version of the Columbia Road shop on the South Bank as they take over the Southbank Centre's Festival Terrace Shop for a month of fittings, furniture and fabrics from the 1950s and beyond, fitting in alongside the main ranges in the shop. They did this in 2014 as well, and this should be just as successful.
"Following last year’s successful nautical takeover Southbank Centre, design duo Mason & Painter have returned to the Festival Terrace Shop for the month of March.
For this exciting second run they have worked within the concept of Flora & Fauna - inspired by the setting of their retail emporium on Columbia Road, home to the famous East End flower market.
Styled with the same vision and maverick mix as their second, larger shop, Mason & Painter bring together a handpicked collection of vintage finds and contemporary products all specially curated to fit the floral theme. Homewares from some of the UK’s most innovative designers feature alongside an exciting collective of the old, the new and the reclaimed.
New product launches include ‘London in Bloom’ tea towels designed exclusively for the takeover together with the release of the Seedpod design tote bag in a new colourway.
Originally designed by Michelle Mason in 2007 the fresh new remix has been commissioned by, and is exclusive to, Southbank Centre Shops.
Just in time for Spring there are also Mason & Painter branded soya wax candles plus greetings cards and cushions.
The best vintage collectibles
The Royal Festival Hall first opened its doors for the Festival of Britain in 1951. With this heritage in mind Mason & Painter present a collection of re-claimed garden furniture - planters & fruit crates, seed packets & watering cans, alongside grain sack fabrics from the early 1950s onwards which have been made into cushions.
All vintage items, products and furniture are for sale alongside the best of contemporary new design, complimenting the existing Southbank Centre ranges."
