We love stories the sharing of adventures. Every pattern has a story behind it and every product brings the story into the home stories of nature and travel of life and living of communities colour friendships and freedom.
This ethos has led to us now working with a selection of meticulous printers craftsmen and product manufacturers across Great Britain to create our products to tell our stories and share our adventures.
B Goods patterned homewares are designed by us – husband and wife team Ben and Fi O’Brien. We work together from our studio in Somerset UK.
Over the past 10 years we have worked together as a multi-disciplinary design studio. We bring dynamic colour and refreshing creativity to everything from advertising and music videos to art prints and sculptural installations.
B Goods started in 2013 blending Fi’s eye for design and Ben’s illustration skills together with their love of the home. Unsurprisingly the name B Goods’ stems from the eternal life rule to be good’.
Originating from Melbourne Australia with a background in advertising, Fi is the founder and director of B Goods. When she’s not ticking off to-do lists co-ordinating product manufacture and retail Fi is to be found at the sewing machine hand-making B Goods textile products.
Ben working under his moniker Ben the Illustrator’ has successfully managed his own creative practice. Initially he was based in London and now takes inspiration from the Somerset forests and fields. Ben is pattern designer and story-writer. He works closely with Fi to bring ideas to life and cover products in pattern and colour.
