Here at Grazia we have fallen in love with Stuart Gardiner prints and Kitchen accessories. We recently caught up with Stuart to find out what’s new for Spring/Summer 2014 and how he became the man who put rock 'n' roll back into your kitchen.
Stuart graduated from Falmouth College of Arts with a degree in Graphic Information Design, and went on to work as a designer and art director within the music industry. In 2009 he made the brave decision to go it alone and start up his own East London studio. Stuart has enjoyed fantastic success with his Seasonal Guide Series and his collections continue to grow.
Loved by us, he is also endorsed by Liberty, Heals, Selfridges, Magma, SCP where you'll find his works stocked. At the moment our favourite of Stuart's creations is his new Bee Friendly apron. 'I have just finished the design for my second beer tea towel which should be out in the Spring too.' he tells us. 'I also have some new coasters, trays and beer mats on their way, so generally broadening the range. As I have done beer, wine and cocktail designs I think the next logical step is Gin and Whisky. I enjoy both and booze-related products seem to be popular. I’m also researching a guide to pairing cheese and wine. It’s a tough job!'
However, Stuart isn't the only one putting cool back into the kitchen, click through the gallery above to see the hottest kitchen accessories...
