The Story Makers

B Goods patterned homewares are designed by husband and wife team Ben and Fi O’Brien, from their studio in Somerset, UK.

Over the passed 10 years they have worked together as a multi-disciplinary design studio, bringing 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 and later opening an independent cafe/design store, 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 can 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 in London and now taking inspiration from the forests and fields surrounding their West Country home. Ben is pattern designer and story-writer for B Goods, working closely with Fi to bring ideas to life and cover products in pattern and colour.
