Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour is universally recognised as a primary destination for creative excellence, bringing together thousands of tastemakers from the worlds of interior design, architecture and style.

Focus is one of my favourite events in the autumn trade show calendar and one that I look forward to with much anticipation. 

It’s a wonderful opportunity to meet with some of my favourite designers and see their new collections first hand – nothing beats touching and feeling a product and as a designer, it’s very important to see fabrics, wall-coverings and furniture on a large scale. 

There were some stunning offerings this year from some of my longstanding suppliers including Romo, Evitavonni, Chase Erwin and Porta Romana, but I was also surprised to discover so many exciting new brands – many of whom I will be welcoming to my Cheshire design studio later this year. 

I would like to share a few of the things that caught my eye this year. Below you’ll find stunning fabrics, contemporary lighting to spark the imagination and one or two exciting new products which are the perfect finishing touch to give your home a little lift this autumn.
