SPRING’S UNMISSABLE INTERIORS EVENT Channelling a rising spirit of individuality and creative expression, London Design Week 2018 is this season’s most anticipated and influential interiors event. This year’s programme of 100+ free events is unmissable. Expect meet-the-designer talks and presentations, demonstrations of exceptional artisan skill, behind-the-scenes glimpses at how collections were conceived and insights on the latest design directions in the showrooms. Specially commissioned installations and a mouthwatering menu of food and drink complement the events programme and make Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour a buzzing destination where designers, innovators and style-seekers come together. The most talented names in the industry will be sharing their stories, ideas and creative vision. On the main stage, Conversations in Design excels with a stellar line-up of highcalibre speakers. Meanwhile, a new initiative, ‘Legends’, sees showroom windows and showcases get the VIP treatment thanks to some highly imaginative collaborations. We hope that it serves as a voyage of discovery around the showrooms, including the much-expanded space in Design Centre East. We continue to grow and evolve, but London Design Week 2018 offers a moment of pause, to take a snapshot of the wealth of talent to be found here. There is much to celebrate, so please enjoy it with us. Claire German Managing Director Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour
