With the end of summer almost upon us, it's time to start looking forward to crisp autumn walks, knitwear, and — most excitingly — plenty of gloriously cosy nights in. So you're going to want to make sure your humble abode is fit for purpose.
If you're looking to hygge-up your home, we've got just the event for you: Focus/19 at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour. This world-famous free-entry celebration of interior design brings new collections from 600 international brands together under one roof. Expect six days of new showroom openings, product launches, meet the designer sessions, Focus/19 guest pop-ups, and much more.
From 15 to 20 September, Europe's leading design destination welcomes an array of star taste-makers. Be the first to discover new collections from a whole host of international showrooms — including new arrivals Collier Webb, David Hunt Lighting, Frato, Lincrusta, Th2, and Turri — dedicated to design excellence.
You'll also get to know plenty of new talent via a raft of Focus/19 guest pop-ups. Timney Fowler's neo-classical wallcoverings, high gloss outdoor furniture in the curated Oomph at Nina Campbell Pop-up, and stunning cabinetry made in the UK from Amy Somerville are just some of the pieces to look forward to.
Not sure what sort of home makeover you're after? Book a complimentary appointment at the personal shopping clinic for some practical design tips.
Focus/19 is your chance to get better acquainted with the world of design, with artisan demonstrations covering everything from tile marbling to Afghan rug weaving. And over on the main-stage, there's also a carefully curated programme of Conversations in Design talks and panel discussions from renowned designers, editors and entrepreneurs at £10 a pop.
If all that inspiration leaves you feeling peckish, make sure you check out the FT How To Spend It restaurant, which promises to be as pleasing to your taste-buds as it is to your eyeballs. There's also cocktail receptions, Italian breakfasts, and fizz-fuelled discovery tours to look forward to.
Focus/19 is free entry, though you will have to book ahead for some talks. Register by 14 September for the chance to win an exclusive prize package, including a champagne lunch for two, a swanky hotel stay at The Berkeley, and two VIP tickets to a Conversations in Design session (subject to availability). See full terms and conditions here.
Focus/19 kicks off at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour with a trade preview from 15-17 September. Then from 18-20 September, everyone is welcome to have a nose around. Hours are 10am-6pm. Click here to pre-register.
