With launches from John Booth, Camille Walala, Kitty Joseph, 2LG Studio and 18.01 London, we're counting down the days till LDF opens its doors this month.
For a week in September, our capital becomes the focus for the entire design world as London Design Festival 2019 celebrates the creativity and output of the city. This year, we're exhibiting at East London's London Design Fair, with 550 exhibitors from over 40 countries.
Found in the Old Truman Brewery, 19-22 September, we'll be lifting the lid on some incredible new collaborative projects, as well as bringing new designs from our ongoing partnerships with Camille Walala, 2LG Studio and Kitty Joseph. The stand is going to look incredible, like a gallery of oversize works of art, beautifully hand-crafted from the finest wools, bamboo viscose and pure silks. We can't flippin' wait.
First off, there's the amazing John Booth. Famed for his ceramics and projects with the likes of Fendi and House of Voltaire, John has created three designs for us in his trademark cheerful and optimistic style – Giovanni, Technique and Flower – that will add a boost of life-affirming colour to any interior. Then there's Sebastian Wrong, of Established and Sons fame, with a modular approach that uses tone, scale and lines to change how we use rugs to define our living and working spaces.
Also launching, Carmellia Indrawati's Marmalade has been inspired by the Art Deco architecture of London's tube stations and cinemas yet has a fabulous
1970s feel thanks to its vibrant teal colourway. For new projects, we conclude with 18.01 London, a creative consultancy and fashion archive, whose Mimimalist/Maximalist
wool and silk rug, with its large-scale stripes and oversized knitted stitches, will leave you thinking about texture in a whole new way.
Continuing our successful partnership with one of East London's hottest design talents, French born Camille Walala, whose colourful geometrics have adorned buildings across the globe, there'll be new rugs and runners that continue her inimitable style at a great range of price points. We'll also see Kitty Joseph's brand new Optik design build on the solid foundation of the hugely popular Chroma series, while 2LG's new rugs - Pill, Portal and Archway - reflect just how far Jordan and Russell's home has come since our original capsule collection.
As if all these weren't enough to leave you salivating, we've also got our Leopard design on show. In colours inspired by Wes Anderson's films, the collection's a real visual treat. Catch us at the Super Brands section at London Design Fair this September - we'd love to see you.
