We’re thrilled to be bringing a touch of Africa to the exclusive American seaside resort of the Hamptons. Margaret and Garry Southern will play host to a three-day exhibition and sale of artworks from Ardmore Ceramic Art and textiles from Ardmore Design. Taking place from Thursday 20th - Saturday 22nd July, both Fee Halsted and Jonathan Berning will be at the event and look forward to meeting Ardmore fans old and new.

According to the Haute Couture shows in Paris last week, fashion is awash with fantasy, petals and pink. Pure escapism was the order of the day, paired with a generous sprinkling of fairytale. There was an elegance and heritage on display, too, all of which resonate strongly with Ardmore Design. It's often noted that fashion and interior trends mirror each other - just look at the elements of our Qalakabusha range above: our very own fantasy world.
Ardmore Design is hugely excited to be part of a new exhibition at the illustrious Parisian department store Le BHV Marais. The event showcases the best in South African fashion and interiors with nearly 40 brands displaying their luxury wares. We love the impact of the store bedecked in SA colours - bringing a distinctly African flavour to the streets of Paris. If you are visiting the French capital, do pop in and enjoy this very special exhibition, which runs until 31 July.
We knew that our collaboration with British wallpaper house Cole & Son was pretty special. But since its launch in January this year, The Ardmore Collection has exceeded expectations, prompting an amazingly positive response from Ardmore fans and the worldwide press.
Carley Bean, Cole & Son's Head of Design, says, "Working on this collection was an absolute treat. As designers, we were committed to making sure we captured the vibrant narrative of Ardmore pieces and that each paper was as beautifully detailed and considered as the ceramics themselves. The hard work seems to have paid off as customers have been utterly charmed by the vibrancy and wit of the designs. Many have commented that they can’t help but smile when seeing the papers - which is the biggest reward of all."
Pictured here is the exquisite Jabu wallpaper. Named after one of Ardmore's finest artists, Jabu Nene, it features a striking vertical stripe and regal rhinos whose horns are celebrated with intricate markings.
Look at the latest gorgeousness from Ardmore Artists and Hermès. Following on from the hugely successful collaboration of silk and cashmere scarves, the French fashion house has created a collection of beachwear featuring beach bags, beach towels, swimsuits and sarongs in the stunning Savana Dance design. Summer can't come soon enough...
