Hi, design lovers!
We began July with the excitement and joy of travelling to Paris for three days to attend Playtime Paris at the Parc Floral. Showcasing the following S/S23 collections of the coolest brands on the market. It was wonderful to see the fair so lively!
With all the fuss of the fair, sometimes it is hard to get all the information processed, especially for buyers. This year, Playtime continues with one of the best online Marketplaces in the industry – the Playtime & Kid’s Hub Marketplace – lasts all year around, so that buyers & sellers have exclusive access to the brands and their new collections. This marketplace is also an amazing opportunity to browse their 260 brands, especially for those of you who work in the industry and weren’t able to attend the fair.
We had the chance to scroll around the Marketplace and bring a special curated selection of our favorite brands from the lifestyle & decor sector.
BigStuffed, based in Paris, creates soft toys that are not only distinct in character and design, but also aesthetically pleasing to adults. BigStuffed can be used for both play and decoration. The whales, octopuses, mammoths, and dinosaurs can only be loved and adopted, and the little ones learn about the delicate animal world.

Holi & Love’s range of bags, quilted throws, and cushions combine Indian craftsmanship with Belgian design to create cheerful products to wear every day on any occasion. We love it!
