This year we’re joining in with celebrations to mark 25 years of the annual 100% Design event in London. First staged in 1994, this flagship trade show is a must-visit for design professionals and is the largest and longest-running design trade event in the UK – it’s a beacon of innovation and we’re always keen to visit.
Hundreds of exhibitions feature the latest trends in furniture, lighting, textiles and interior finishes that push the boundaries of design, with established and emerging brands to excite and inspire. We’ve gathered a few of our favourites – some of which we’re already using in our design concepts.
Debut of SPACER luxury solid bronze tiles
We love SPACER’s hand-made tiles in solid bronze. The Thanet art studio produces the tiles using techniques that date back hundreds of years for authentic appeal. The hexagonal tiles are given a satin finish, while the square tiles are highly polished.
