This week we headed to Design Centre Chelsea Harbour for the start of London Design Week, an unmissable interiors event showcasing brands’ upcoming spring/summer 23 collections.
With new showroom openings and exciting collaborations, we were on the lookout for the key trends that will dominate our homes for 2023.
Fashion design house Temperley London and fabric house Romo have created a dreamlike collection of fabrics, wallcoverings, trimmings and cushion. A glimpse into Alice’s wonderland, the new collection narrates a fantastical story, with an eclectic offering adorned with leopard prints and monkey motifs, providing a playful opulence and a journey down a rabbit hole to a mystical land of maximalism.
It wouldn’t be spring without florals, and these were in abundance at LDW23. From the latest wallpaper and fabric collections to the latest collaborations, flora and fauna will continue to be a must-have in the home. Named ‘Dreaming with Flowers’, Savoir Beds’ new collection in partnership with fabric artist Natasha Hulse showcases a one-of-a-kind design upholstered onto one of Savoir’s classic bed frames. Delving into the archives of French and Dutch floral designs from the Baroque period, Hulse has selected an array of European flowers including roses, tulips and marigolds to create a beautiful, handcrafted headboard inspired by nature.
Maximalism has dominated the interiors landscape for quite some time, and there is no sign of it slowing down. London Design Week showcased a number of brands whose showrooms were filled with striking colours, patterns and shapes. One showroom in particular stood out; Mind the Gap, specialises in storytelling through the magic of weaving. Its most recent collection, Tales of Maghreb, is an explosion of colour and pattern, instantly transporting people into the magical charm of North Africa with sophisticated elegance.
Once again, London Design Week has cemented Design Centre Chelsea Harbour as a vibrant, creative hub brimming with ideas and inspirations. Championing the design community in all its glory, it’s an event we look forward to every spring to learn about the latest and most established names in interiors.
