September is design month in London, as the capital hosts exhibitions and events showcasing the works of designers and makers from across the globe. This year sees us move to a bigger and better stand at the London Design Fair, as we launch rugs from Zandra Rhodes, Eley Kishomoto, Emdal Studio, Josephine Ford, Catherine MacGruer and more.
Our artisans are busy putting the finishing touches to Wiggle All Over, one of Zandra's creations for FLOOR_STORY
We're deep in preparation for the London Design Fair, finalising designs and making sure we've got everything just so before the doors to the Old Truman Brewery open on 21st September. To tell you the truth, while it's an awful lot of work to get everything together in time, we're more excited this year than we've ever been before. Not only have we made our way to a brand new location, we've taken on our biggest stand yet and we're also premiering some of our most prestigious collaborations to date.
Located in what's regarded as the creative heart of the capital, east London, the London Design Fair presents 300 independent designers and studios to an eager public looking for beautiful and individual pieces of design. Our stand will certainly be embracing this, as we're bringing along 'never seen before' rugs in almost every colour and pattern known to man. There will be some beautiful qualities sourced from some of the world's best makers in the stunning Pollack, Mercury and Lights, sitting alongside works with some big names from the design and fashion worlds.
Our long love affair with the striking graphic prints of Eley Kishomoto will finally come to life in a series of 100% wool qualities. The samples of these look great and we can't wait to see the finished articles before the show opens. Of course, Zandra Rhodes needs absolutely no introduction whatsoever and we are blown away that we're going to be able to launch three of her iconic designs at LDF. Based on famous patterns such as Wiggle - projected onto a wing of the V&A - and her Mexican Dinner Plate of 1978, these rugs chronicle four decades of Zandra's mesmerising designs and we reckon there's sure to be a queue of people waiting to see these beautiful styles.
As if that wasn't enough to take in, we're also presenting new works by Studio Emdal, Josephine Ford and Catherine MacGruer, our showroom partners and friends, KENT & LONDON, and our first ever commercially available in-house designs by the amazing Adriana Jaroslavsky. We're working hard to make sure everything comes together in time and the google sheets is gradually filling with ticks, thank goodness.
Check out the Festival's website here, put the 21-24 September in your diary and we'll see you there. You can find us in Hall 3 Stand S4.
