It’s London Design Week at the Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour and I went along on Tuesday to see all the latest trends for spring and summer.
There were some fabulous things on display filling me with inspiration and a strong desire to re-do my entire house!
Green was a key colour along with various hues of pink, orange and blue. Fabrics and wallpapers featured intricate floral motifs and furniture and accessories had softer lines with lots of bobble legs and scallop edges on everything from rugs to light fittings. Images below include rugs by Amy Kent, chandelier by Paolo Moschino, pink and green bedroom by Charlotte Gaisford, bobble four poster at Julian Chichester and Andrew Martin rugs.
My favourite showrooms included William Morris, Julian Chichester and relative newcomer Mind the Gap.
Although each brand is very different there were similarities between these three in terms of their bold use of colour and pattern.
Heritage brand William Morris’s popularity doesn’t
seem to wane and it was one of the busiest showrooms I visited with a glorious display of their latest offerings.
Julian Chichester was full of well designed and beautifully crafted furniture and accessories in fun
colours that would make a statement in any space.
The founders of Mind the Gap are from Transylvania and the style and ethos of their design style is very much rooted in their homeland with an individual and eclectic range of home decor items and a focus on eco-friendly products.
Hampshire-based Modern British was another brand that was new to me. It represents a team of architects, designers and artisans who make hand-crafted kitchens and furniture from the finest materials. Their unique designs are beautiful and functional with a strong focus on sustainability.
