LDF15 - Design Junction visit


Design Junction comes to an end tomorrow, so this is an opportunity to share the highlights of my visit on Friday and introduce you to some great shops and emerging designers so hopefully you will be inspired to pop over for some last minute shopping and inspiration! The show is a 5 minute walk from Holborn station towards Bloomsbury Square in central London so no excuses for not visiting. It hosts some 180 brands.

Victoria House was my first stop and once I got my ticket wristband on, I was good to start exploring the place. During my visit I had a scheduled design clinic with Jordan Cluroe and Russell Whitehead of 2 Lovely Gays (hosted by Nest.co.uk) but with plenty of time ahead of my appointment, I made my way around the various rooms talking photos and talking to people. Victoria House is a popular destination for private buyers as it has a retail offering of premium design brands, both British and International. This post is focusing on this part of the exhibition as more relevant to me (and you, the readers I guess!)

Here are the highlights of this visit, however there are so many more designers and brands that you will find there!

\The Elephant Herd

21 designers including Terence Woodgate, Eley Kishimoto and Sir Kenneth Grange have customised the iconic Eames Elephant which will be auctioned at the end of the show for the Teddy's Wish charity. You can bid on these pieces of art here.
