Welcome to TPC’s fourth installment of the National Stationery Show’s Insider Guide. First up are picks from Chelsea Shukov of sugar paper los angeles. That famed posh house of paper will be in Booth 2334 with these brass goodies to dress one’s desk — as well as lots of other fabulous finds, no doubt!
Chelsea’s favorite stop is Moglea in Booth 2046. “Meg has a style that is so different from what we make, but one I love so much. Inevitably we end up buying (nearly) the entire booth, but that’s okay because it’s all gorgeous!”
Before I get to Moglea, however, I have Monika Brandrup from Up With Paper/UWP Luxe, all of which will be found in Booth 2820. Miss their new dimensional designs — a peek of which is below — at your own risk!
So, what’s Monika’s pick? “MOGLEA! I have such respect for the design aesthetic of the creative team at Moglea,” she told me. “I am in love with the way they thoughtfully combine truly hand-painted, one-of-a-kind elements with meticulously integrated modern processes and traditional letterpress to create lines that stand out in the market. Each design is a work of art, and each year they are not afraid to try something completely unexpected and different. Stumbling upon Moglea feels like an ‘ah-ha’ moment, where every minute detail has been thoughtfully and carefully considered. Their joy, passion, and commitment to integrating fine art with stationery is immediately evident. Their products resonate with me and makes me feel happy and excited too!”
Okay, you heard it here first! This is one booth not to miss. Meg sent me a peek at their new wares, by turns hand-painted, letterpressed and foiled — and they are indeed phenomenal!
Thank you so much Chelsea, Monika and Meg for sharing all this! I’ve got just one more post in this series: Next week I’ll be featuring picks from Anna Bond of Rifle Paper Co. as well as Suzie McKig of Twig & Fig.
