This week sees the much-anticipated launch of Design Week 2017. Hundreds of new fabrics, wallpapers, lighting and furniture products go on show across the showrooms of London. I popped in to the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour and in my ‘quick’ visit of three hours, I barely scratched the surface. Oh shucks, that meant I had to go back.

It is almost impossible to highlight my own favourites (there are just too many), let alone document all or even some of the new products. So how to narrow it down? Well, since eyes are windows to the soul, so I focus on the window displays. They serve as a lens through which to capture the soul of a brand. Window displays are the best gauge of what lies inside the showrooms. But they also show us, on the other side of the glass, the real essence of the clever people who create that brand.

Have a peek below, but then head on in, preferably in person, to experience these wonderful and creative spaces for yourselves.

Tissus d’Helene

Greens, pinks and purples jostle together beautifully in a myriad of wonderful textures in this tented display.
