Back now to more contemporary matters. A new trade show for homewares and interiors, HOME, will open on the 15th January for 3 days at Earls Court in London. Running at the same time as Top Drawer it will already have an established visitor base.
It will be the first showcase for new designs, coming a week before Maison & Objet opening in Paris on the 20th January, and is a good opportunity for smaller exhibiting companies and UK buyers who don’t make the journey across the Channel. I’m looking forward to seeing design-led products and makers out in force.
Keep an eye out for Naomi Paul whose crocheted lamps I saw at Tent. She’ll be showing with the 5ml Design Collective.
