design & décor

pattern & press

why should design have to be compromised for personalisation?” muse new personalised gifts company pattern & press, “it just doesn’t make sense.”

i’ve generally always been fairly scathing of personalised websites, who seem to only offer cheap, plasticky goods with garish gold customisations, so when i initially came across pattern & press i was dubious to say the least.

but pattern & press believe beautiful design and personalisation can and should go hand in hand, and aim for simply understated personalisation; beautiful, clean design made special by each customer’s individual touch.

as i perused their sleek elegant website i quickly found myself lusting after their simple understated designs, particularly the bone china initialed mugs and the personalised glass display domes, which would make wonderful wedding gifts. i was also especially drawn to the smart personalised tan notebook, which would be perfect for taking travel notes on my next overseas trip… (hint, hint!)

    Gosh, you are so right. Why is it that websites offering personalised presents are usually soooo tacky???

    This is a great find. Thank you so much. Hope to see you on Tuesday x
