London Design Week 2015 Highlights

 

Screen Shot 2015-11-10 at 3.15.30 pm In September this year was London Design Week and I spent a whole week in design heaven. Design Week is a festival with literally hundreds of events taking place across the breadth of this huge city. Every furniture, fabric, wallpaper, lighting, rug and fashion designer who wants to showcase their work to the world participates. From small invitation only gatherings in uber cool areas like Whitechapel and Shoreditch to huge trade Conferences and Fairs, there was tonnes to see.

Below is my first post of the products and latest looks I loved most, many available to ship to Australia. Norway and Taiwan offered many of the best designs and Tent London was my favourite event.

There were so many stunning products on offer at every venue. Here are some of my favourites that I wish I had in my home.

The fantastically clever ‘Duple’ stool that converts to a side table by slotting in either a tray or seat pad. Genius.

Screen Shot 2015-11-08 at 5.51.34 pm ‘Weathered’ by Kneip at 100% Norway, at TentLondon LDW15. Perfect for any sideboard, office or hall way. I love them for the beautiful colours and I’m always looking for taller objects to place on shelves.
