Spring has most certainly arrived at Chelsea Harbour Design Centre. Last week I attended London Design Week and wow, the buzz! What a glorious treat it was to admire and be inspired by the latest design trends.

The Design Centre is a welcoming place for both professionals and design enthusiasts; when I first visited years ago I must be honest, I felt a little intimidated. With time, I have discovered how much the Design Centre is a valuable place for learning and sourcing, both wearing my hat as homemaker and property developer.  Visiting the Design Centre helps me plan and visualise for current and future projects, and so I throughly do recommend you to pop along it you can.

Today I am sharing with you my style notes and favourite finds from London Design Week – enjoy!

Charlotte Gaisford

I made a beeline for Charlotte’s stand on the Design Avenue! An established boutique British brand, Charlotte designs her unique fabric and wallpaper collections from a rural farm in Northumberland.

Charles Orchard

Charles and his wife Luli took the opportunity to present two new collections inspired by their life and travels in Asia. Rattan and lacquer feature to create pieces which blend both English and Chinese furniture design.  The pieces are stunning and would work well both in traditional as well as more contemporary settings.

This laquered bamboo chair by Charles Orchard is on my wish list


Robert Langsford

A design delight, Robert’s corner on Design Avenue was a showstopper! Working with Sue Bond Interiors, Robert’s range of made to order and in stock furniture really stood out for all the right reasons.

Attention to detail, Sue Bond worked her magic to create the most beautiful setting to showcase Robert Langsford’s furniture.


Porta Romana x Colefax and Fowler

Spring is in the air… Porta Romana have updated a selection of their timeless lamp bases in fresh and vibrant glazes and glass colours and paired these with eye-catching shaded made in collaboration with Colefax and Fowler. The shades are truly one-of-a-kind; made using remnants of fabric, a lovely way to reduce waste and create something beautiful.

I hope you have enjoyed my highlights, and been inspired!

Have a lovely day,
