Join us in a sigh of relief: it's nearly time to put that gloomy London winter behind us. Things are starting to brighten up a little, and it's the perfect time of year to give your home a little bit of a makeover, too.
London Design Week 2018 can help you do just that. This March, the event descends upon Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, for a week-long celebration featuring the best of London's interior design scene. It's completely free to attend, and visitors can immerse themselves amongst some of the most esteemed and influential designers in the capital and beyond.
A jam-packed programme of 100+ events — all of them free — means there's something to inspire all manner of style-seekers, and the 'Access All Areas' programme will ensure you're doing more than just mere window shopping.
Attendees can get right up close with meet-the-designer talks and presentations, go behind-the-scenes with glimpses into how collections were conceived, and witness live demonstrations from those at the top of their craft. Live Q&A sessions mean you'll be able to pitch your questions to those in-the-know, plus the new 'Legends' initiative will see showroom windows and showcases transformed in high-profile collaborations between brands like Loewe and Morris & Co.
Just some of the top names confirmed for the event include Neisha Crosland, who'll be talking trends and introducing her new Jigsaw tile collection at Artisans of Devizes; renowned French designer Jean-Louis Deniot, who'll be signing copies of his new book at Marc De Berny; and Decca (Bolier), who'll be hosting a round-table discussion on how to excel at hotel design.
Those looking to dig a little deeper into the world of interior design, might want to check out ticketed events as part of the 'Conversations in Design' series too — including a talk on the blurred boundaries between art, architecture and product from architects Simon Mitchell and Fiona McLean, and restaurant designer Afroditi Krassa.
