The London Design Festival this year is absolutely huge. It runs for most of September and includes many design events. It took me ages to put my head around it all. I went to some of the events already – trade only and public ones too. Here I want to give you a quick summary of what’s going on in the interior design world at the moment starting with Tent London.
I really enjoyed going to Tent London because it’s not only focused on British talents but also they bring international designers from across the whole world. Europe, Asia, Japan. So interesting and inspiring.
Warning: there will be loads of photos in this post. I want to credit as much as possible but I was snapping pictures of everything that caught my eye without taking the notes about the company. I tried to trace them back with the help of the show guide so I hope the credits are right. So let’s kick off with lighting.

Lolo Palazzo /Andersson / Design By Mai
Now to wall features. I really like this wooden wall art.
Lee Bortwick / Thomas & Vine / Tamasine Osher Design
Wallpaper patterns are next. Geometrics and patterns inspired by nature were dominating the show. Birds, animals, flowers that kind of thing.
Custhom / Tracey Tubb / Dana Finnigan
And finally here’s some very unique and very unusual furniture designs. Bright colours and very quirky shapes.
Danish Made / Thomas & Vine
Steuart Padwick / Design By Mai / Melanie Porter / Design Council of Ireland

It was a really great afternoon. Would you put any of these products in your home? Next week I’m visiting 2 more trade shows – Decorex and Focus. Stay tuned for my reviews.
