London Design Festival 2015

September marked the month of the London Design Festival and this year we were very impressed! The Wickenden Hutley team was out in full force scouting new suppliers, collections and inspiration. 

If you went along to some of the events, you would have definitely discovered some new favourites.. We certainly did! 

The Decorex VIP lounge 

If you were lucky enough to be invited to the Decorex VIP lounge, you would have also admired the work of the New Craftsmen. The Mayfair based company showcase British craftsmanship at its finest.

Barneby Gates 

Barneby Gates is the brainchild of trend setters Vanessa Barneby and Alice Gates. With such an impressive background in the design industry it really is no wonder that their collections are making waves, they definitely caught our attention! 

We love a fun wallpaper!

2. Marrakech Palm
3. Pineapple

We have been fans of Ochre for a while now, but their new collection have set our love in stone. Worth a special mention is the Sable chair range. Beautifully made; the metal frame is clad in Italian saddle leather with hand sewn pinched seams and scalloped corner details. If you're looking for beautiful design focused on quality, Ochre is definitely worth a look..
