We were invited to design a space for House and Garden Magazine for their festival, and we wanted to give you the inside track on how we created the concept and pulled together the design of our space using our own wallpaper design alongside pieces from other exhibitors at the show, running from 21-24th of June.

The heart of the modern home, the hardworking kitchen table is the centrepiece to our design for this beautiful space. Performing multifunctions for family life, the kitchen table transforms from office desk, to children's playtime, to artists studio to bakers work station to entertaining space and that can be just one day for so many modern homes.

Setting out to make this hardworking space both functional and beautiful we were inspired by the new arts and crafts movement. This modern take has added decorative flair. With natural materials leading the pared back design, the star being the finely crafted bare wood furniture, and giving it this muted colour palette of pinks and greens. Decorative joy, one of our signatures, comes from the hand printed wallpaper based on fragmented floral motifs from our new Forest hill Collection, of papers and textiles, designed and made in collaboration with award winning studio, Custhom. With panelling on the walls to give an elegant base, dedicated storage for various tasks and plants for added homeliness. Beauty and function combine in a nature inspired living/dining experience that transforms for your needs.

You can expect to get a first glimpse of our new print collection in Britain after its successful outing in New York Design Festival last month. We will also be taking part in a panel discussion with House and Garden Magazine on stage and will be around to discuss our styling choices and the design of our space. Look out for pics of the finished space on our social media soon. Or even better, It will be an amazing interiors day out at Olympia so pls do come along and see our style room or listen to our talk and take in all the wonderful design exhibitors while you are there.
