The Design Archives at London Design Week 2024

The Design Archives at London Design Week 2024

The Design Archives had the pleasure in being a ‘House Guest’, alongside other selected interior brands for Design Centre Chelsea Harbour’s London Design Week 2024. Thank you so much to all who visited us, we absolutely loved our residency, as did Bennett Silks and The Holbein Company, our showroom partners, who were also showing with us. London Design Week was the best show yet and we were thrilled with the feedback received. The stand looked fantastic, if you don’t mind us saying so, on the walls we had Grand Floral Zest, Malaya Emerald, and Malaya Plain Emerald wallpaper. The furniture by David Seyfried showcased our recently launched Samarkand collection.

Scottish Interiors Showcase

Scottish Interiors Showcase

The Scottish Interior Showcase saw interior designers and retail visitors descend on the McDonald Inchyra Hotel where it was a real pleasure to meet up with clients and colleagues from Scotland and the North of England. As one of our favourite shows, it provides the perfect opportunity to connect with customers who don’t feel the need to always head South for the shows.
