SEPTEMBER VENTURES

This month brings so many exciting showcases for our Mairi Helena textiles as we are heading for London at the end of this week to take part in not one, but TWO trade shows at London Olympia.

We are delighted to have been chosen to take part in both the ‘Spotted’ section for new designers at Top Drawer (11th-13th September) as well as ‘Emerging Brands’ section at 100% Design (21st-24th September). Both shows are amongst the UK’s leading international design-led events for creative retailers and brands and we cannot wait to showcase our range of wallpapers, cushions, fabrics and lampshades and get stuck in amongst the action!

Alongside our wallpapers, cushions and lampshades, we are extremely proud to be showcasing a bespoke item of furniture on our stand, featuring our ‘Fine Art Pink Thistle Velvet‘ fabric. In collaboration with Charlotte James Furniture in Edinburgh, we are delighted to be able to present a stunning MacDonald chair which is going to take pride of place on our stands in Olympia.

I’m privileged to be able to work with the team at Charlotte James Furniture, who create luxury bespoke furniture from their base in Edinburgh city. From the carpentry to the tailoring and upholstery, every stage of the furniture making process is given undivided attention. I was lucky enough to witness the making of my chair at the Charlotte James upholstery workshop. Let me take you on a photographic ‘behind the scenes’ journey of my MacDonald Chair being created:
