Aspace Young Designers
Every now and then we get to do something that makes our hearts swell and our buttons pop with pride. And yes, today is one of those days as we launch the Aspace Young Designers initiative.
In a nutshell, Aspace Young Designers offers a platform for up and coming creative whizzes to showcase their talents. Our chairman, Caspar Williams, had the brainwave during a student mentorship event where he met a textile designer called Chloe Flint.

“I was simply blown away by Chloe’s work,” says Caspar. “I do a fair amount of mentorship with young people and a common theme is the need for real world experience. I realised that Aspace could provide a setting where young people are nurtured while gaining valuable work experience. In turn, we are delighted to have fresh talent like Chloe bringing new life to Aspace.”
“The Young Designers initiative is a testament to our approach to collaborative learning – one of our core company values,” says Caspar. So after a many a meeting and lots of hard work, we whittled down a number of Chloe’s unique repeat designs to our favourites (a difficult process as there were so many fab ideas to choose from). The result, which we are delighted to present you today, is our brand new collection of boys and girls duvet cover sets, and our three new cushion covers.

The brilliant duvet cover sets are now available to purchase, a real 'pinch-me' moment for Chloe. Containing both a single bed duvet cover and a pillowcase, the sets cost £55, exclusively from Aspace. Buy, browse and join in the conversation; help us get behind our up and coming young designers.
