Stockist Spotlight: Flamingosaurus Rex
Flamingosaurus Rex, possibly the coolest named shop in Edinburgh, opened in Bruntsfield in 2016 by owner Lucy Wang.
Inspired by the vast amount of creativity within Edinburgh, Flamingosaurus Rex opened as a multi-functional space with the aim of showcasing emerging Scottish artists and designers.
The intimate gallery-cum-shop is full of bright, exciting and interesting work from artists living and working throughout Scotland. Walls are lined with quirky artwork, posters, prints and cards while custom made counters and hexagonal cabinets house unique jewellery gifts and homeware.
As well as stocking fantastic prints, cards, homeware, jewellery and design objects all year round, Flamingosaurus Rex also hosts collaborative artist lead exhibitions and launch parties. I may be a bit biased since I was lucky enough to have the launch party for the Balance collection at Flamingosaurus Rex last year. However, we had an amazing party, it was such a great space for an event and the guys were amazing with everything!
Flamingosarurs Rex collaborate with artists to create eclectic exhibitions and group shows, offering another element to the shop and giving emerging artists a place to showcase their work. The next show, “Process. An Exhibition by Heather More” is on from Friday 12th October.
