Sofas and Stuff do Decorex!
10 October 2011
London Design Festival is officially over now but this year's event was one of the best so far. We wound up this week of design delights with Decorex - always a firm favourite in our diaries here at Sofas & Stuff HQ. This year's event didn't fail to disappoint and was well worth the trip over to the Royal Hospital in Chelsea, where the show was being held.
Our design director, Andrew Cussins, was at Decorex yesterday and was blown away by the show but also the location, "There is something inspiring and uplifting about the gorgeous setting of the Royal Hospital, Chelsea. The sight of the Chelsea pensioners looking so smart, elegant and happy, always puts a smile on my face"
So without further ado, we bring you some of our top picks from the day…
We love this design by American, Carolina Irving. Hand printed on linen, it combines so many traditions - its ethnic, yet modern. Smart yet relaxed. Well done Carolina, and we hope we can work together some day.
We have known Russell for a few years now and I have some of his furniture - two twig benches, at home. Russell Pinch is, in my humble opinion, a designer of true talent. His designs are almost Japanese in their simplicity and are made utterly beautifully - always in the UK. They are dead cert design classics. So a big cheer for Russell Pinch.
Rapture and Wright
We've been a fan of Rapture & Wright for about a year now. Printed in the UK, the designs are really well executed, very graphic, and timeless. A new star in the fabric worlds firmament?
Again, we have known Margo Selby for quite a few years now. Margo designs textiles that at times feel thoroughly three-dimensional. Her command of colour is also excellent, and the throw pictured I can honestly say was my one "must have" moment of the show. These will be appearing in our "stuff" category in December as great pressies for Christmas.
Doyenne of the fabric world, Nina Campbell has created a cracker of a new print here, in her Montacute design. If this makes an appearance on Sofas & Stuff floors soon I won't be surprised.
