Designer rugs - my top picks for AW16
September sees one of the busiest months in design around London with London Design Festival, Decorex, Design Junction, 100% Design among the events that take place. It's great to go along to these exhibitions (well, a must for those who work in interior design or just blog about it like yours truly) and a great opportunity for those looking for inspiration before heading into a project.
You get to see first hand what is going to be trending in the coming months and what is already available in shops by top interior shops as well as independent boutiques and designers. And don't forget - on the last day - to ask if anything on display is for sale (besides products that are already marked as being available to buy there and then). Exhibitors will much prefer to sell something than have to take it back with them, so bring some cash with you! Decorex International takes place between 18-21 September 2016 in Syon Park.
Exhibitors to watch
I thought I'd focus on flooring in this post as we are officially into Autumn (no joy here!) and I dread the cold months ahead without a lush carpet to walk on. Our home has wooden floors and we have covered most of them with oriental rugs which were gifted to us by family, and while I love them (the carpets and the family), I would also like something more modern - or something I would have chosen myself. So this is the perfect opportunity for me to share a list of DECOREX exhibitors I look forward to visiting that also happen to be on my shortlist for when I update our accent rugs around the home.
