Concept Japan founder Helen Ikeguchi gives a preview of the new product range.
AGHA Sydney Gift Fair will welcome Concept Japan to its signature buying destination Design Life Sydney, with the ceramics and homewares brand presenting an extensive new range of tabletop products for customers seeking a taste of Japanese culture.
Sourced directly from Japan, the family-owned business offers Australian homes an assortment of ceramics in trendy colours and patterns to suit any table setting.
Retail buyers can anticipate traditional blue and white pieces along with artistic stand-alone items and beautiful gift box sets.
Concept Japan co-founder Helen Ikeguchi told the Australian Gift & Homewares Association (AGHA), that Design Life Sydney offers the opportunity to have a dream showroom for a week, surrounded by seasoned exhibitors in an environment that is very much focused on business
“The AGHA Sydney Gift Fair enables us to create a space to display our full range, and we take great pride in merchandising it as beautifully as possible so our clients can have a real ‘in store’ experience,” Ikeguchi explained.
“Our range is very tactile. It’s important that clients get to see the product in person, pick it up, and even play around with it, workshopping stories and imagining how it would work for them in their business,” she said.
As with every season, Concept Japan will complement its popular existing ranges with several new styles as a key feature of its diverse stand display, bringing new elements for every visitor to enjoy at the show.
“There’s a little bit of everything in there! We have a huge range of premium Japanese serving ware, but of course the centerpieces have to be the gorgeous plates and bowls, from earthy and organic colours through to stunning patterns,” Ikeguchi added.
“Our blue and white ceramics have been consistently popular with a wide variety of buyers so we are expanding that range, and one notable new addition is a beautiful polka dot range, with the motif reimaged in some great contemporary styles.”
