Mini Moderns Stationery Brings Perfect Patterns to Desks Everywhere
This month sees the launch of Mini Moderns stationery; a delightful collection of paper goods and desk accessories, decorated with stylish patterns.
For British interiors band Mini Moderns, the new range is the company’s first step into the world of stationery.
Working with stationery experts, Portico Designs, they have revisited some favourite patterns, which were previously only available as wallpaper. Now these patterns can now be enjoyed by stationery addicts everywhere.
Speaking of their decision to develop a stationery collection Mini Moderns founders, Keith Stephenson and Mark Hampshire stated:
“Everything we do starts life as a wallpaper design, so creating a range of largely paper-based products means that there’s an instant synergy with our core home furnishing ranges”.
Stationery and Pattern Combined
Perfect for the home office, the stationery collection brings colour blocks, icons and patterns to an array of quality stationery products.
- Stand Out Patterns – the new stationery range features P.L.U.T.O. a striking geometric design from Mini Moderns’ popular Hinterland collection.
- A Return to Roots – the stationery colletion also sees a welcome return of the design duo’s first ever print, ‘Do You Live in a Town’.
- Signature Style – Mini Moderns signature ‘Bungalow’ icon can be found across the range as icon and repeat pattern.
- Cool Colours – the collection features Mini Moderns signature colours: Mustard, Tangerine Dream and their distinctive turquoise, known as Lido.
Creating the Mini Moderns Stationery Collection
Mark and Keith have enjoyed the creative process of developing the Mini Moderns stationery collection. Keith in particular has spoken of the mix of materials they have achieved within the range, commenting:
“As well as paper products, which naturally embody the spirit of our wallpapers, we have introduced some icon wooden pieces, like the Tablet Holder and the Perpetual Desk Calendar. Printed in our P.L.U.T.O. design, these items look stunning and are made from 100% sustainably sourced beech wood.”
“One of the things that we particularly love about the range is the attention to detail. Working with the expert team at Portico, we have managed to integrate lovely touches like debossing and foil detailing into the products. The whole range perfectly reflects our home furnishing ethos – accessible and joyful.”
Collaborators Portico Designs are equally thrilled with the creativity that Mark and Keith brought to the stationery range.
Charlie Bassil, sales Director at Portico Designs commented:
“We are thrilled to unveil our biggest launch this spring – our Mini Moderns stationery & gift collection. Months in the making, this playful 20-piece collection includes super stylish wooden desk accessories and stationery pieces. This British home interiors brand has a cult following with their unique take on pattern with mid-century twist. We can’t wait to bring their signature look to your home office!”

Within the range stationery addicts will find pens, pencils, notepads, binders, clipboards and much more.
