This year’s London Design Show was a spectacle of design decadence, architectural precision, and importantly, a celebratory festival of interior design at the heart of Chelsea.
The Interior Studio took nearly all of the team along to Chelsea Harbour in order to be inspired and envisioned with what the design show had to offer, and it didn’t disappoint.
A grey and dank day couldn’t dampen the spirits, and the first stop in a rain soaked London was Designers guild. We always enjoy stopping off at DG not least because of the beautiful collections they offer, but also because our representative for the company, Lizzy, is always so hospitable and will stop at nothing to make sure we’re enjoying ourselves and being looked after. Suzanne (Chief designer), was particularly excited about Ralph Lauren’s new collection.
“Innovative, Inspirational, and extremely cool”
After a brief stop at Osborne & Little, admiring their best spring collection to date, we hailed a taxi to Chelsea harbour Design Centre. Having checked in officially as trade, the main centre immediately greeted us with an atmosphere of excitement and interest. We were quite content in then spending the rest of the day here at the centre, lunch was provided for by Tatler, and canapés and drinks were generously provided for by the showrooms, all helping make the experience particularly enjoyable.
The delicious canapés and fine wine couldn’t distract us, though, from the sheer excellence of the designers and what they had to offer.
One notable highlight was a kitchen designer that we hadn’t come across previously. Christopher Peacock kitchens is a designer that works using an American inspired approach. The result? Innovative, inspirational, and extremely cool. The detail involved in things as basic as the hinges to the cabinets were what set Christopher Peacock apart from anyone else.
“Finest companies in the world”
Perhaps the greatest highlight of them all was the pleasure of seeing all my reps. I’m fortunate to be a stockist for nearly all of the finest interior design companies in the world, and what makes the pleasure sweeter is the relationships I form with the associates of those companies that visit The interior Studio.
