Hello LDW 2017!!!
At design week there were a wonder of delights from a wide spectrum of design were on show to admire and lust over. Packed full of inspiring talks, pop-ups and installations; it provided a real theatre for your senses. It was definitely a year to remember, leaving us bursting full of ideas to bring back to the studio as well as inspiring us to order new home accessories for the shop.
We have picked out a few of our highlights to give a real ‘sense’ of the event!
Julia Begbie’s ‘New Colour Strategies’ talk, tested colour theories and described how to alter a person’s experience through the psychology of colour.
Recently we have experimented by teaming up vibrant pairings which instantly lift a space, adding a sense of fun and youthfulness.
Cake designer Sophie Cabot, showcased a display of edible delights based upon designs from leading fabric houses, such as the Pierre Frey’s Kagura print and Toni Murphy’s iconic Hamilton Spot. A truly Unique collaboration, and inquisitively admired!
‘Style with scent’ was a hot topic hosted by Tatler design club. Emma South of Jo Malone London , discussed how to style your home with scent and its transformative effect on a rooms ambience.

An extremely interactive and informative talk was ‘Beauty without compromise’ by Jacaranda Carpets. They uncovered the secrets of their ethically produced handmade rugs, showing demonstrations on how they are made and the chance feel the range of luxurious yarns used.
