Designex 2013

At Designex... not dressed entirely in black!
I very much enjoyed my trip to Designex this year, apart from the exciting new products I love the atmosphere of being surrounded by fellow designers (yes, as expected there was a lot of black worn!).

There is very much an influence from mid century styling, that I saw in furniture and lighting too (think of Great Dane furniture and pendant lighting with smoky glass).

Porter's Paints shone with its range of papers and speciality paints (The liquid copper paint is inspired), while Dulux showcased its colour forecasts.

It was a pleasure to revisit fabric houses and their new products (natural fibres, decorative sheers and digitally printed cloths are going to be added to my favourites list!)

I won't go on listing all that I saw, but you can be assured I have been inspired and look forward to demonstrating that in future projects.
