100% Design, London Design Festival
If you’re a follower of my Instagram then you may have seen our 100% Design story unfold on the newsfeed over the last week!
I’ve been exhibiting my interior collection within the ‘Emerging Brands’ section of the design show held at London Olympia. 100% Design is one of the UK’s top shows for contemporary design and it was thrilling to be a part of it. Over the four day event (which saw over 26 000 visitors last year) interiors designers and architects from all over the world flock to the design show to seek out the very latest in furniture design, lighting, hard and soft furnishings.
From touch sensitive light control switches, to sound proof office pods, life sized metal giraffe sculptures to wooden bicycles, 100% Design showcased products for the home by designers from across the globe.
I was absolutely delighted to be opposite a wonderful Portuguese design company Se7e who have produced ‘The Berco’; a rocking chair with sophistication and style. Complete with built in speakers and the ability to customise your very own Berco in the colours of your choice, it’s of no surprise that this super sleek design was deservedly popular!
Here’s me taking a seat in the super cool Berco!
Our bright colourful wallpapers (in collaboration with Tektura Wallcoverings), lampshades, velvet cushions, furniture upholstery (in collaboration with Charlotte James Furniture) and fabrics also caught the eye of the visitors.

I’ve been overwhelmed by the wonderful response, with a lot of people commenting that my Scottish Thistle inspired designs created an upbeat feeling of happiness!! With interest from interior designers, retailers and architects from as far away as Beijing, Israel, Korea and US to name a few, I’m extremely excited.
Here’s a few snap shots from the brief opportunity I had to speed around the show in between chatting to customers on my stand. I hope you enjoy!
