It would be impossible to discuss interior design in London without mentioning the beautiful Design Centre Chelsea Harbour. Our trip there coordinated with the opening day of FOCUS, their annual design show. This is when we visited the beautiful showrooms of sponsors Samuel Heath and Victoria + Baths, covered here. In addition, most of the showrooms offered something special – discussions, book signings or at least champagne!!
I loved the clean classic lines at Davidson furniture. Their pieces were streamlined and beautifully made with lovely finishes and elegant hardware.
Barbara Barry was on her way to give a design lecture hosted by House & Garden.
Many of us loved the incredibly chic showroom of Italian company Dedar,
who has a new joint venture with Hermes. Together they have formed a new company, Faubourg Italia, which produces an entire collection of upholstery fabrics, wallpaper and carpets. Here is a sneak peek.
It was my never-ending quest for orange that led me to this beautiful chair, but I think it was the champagne that was responsible for the cheeky attitude!!
Chelsea Harbour has 90 showrooms representing over 500 international brands. We really only scratched the surface – there’s always next time!!
