FOCUS /18 – DESIGN CENTRE CHELSEA HARBOUR 

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.

It sets the scene and can give impact to an otherwise dull space. Scale is as important as content. Get it wrong and a piece will lose all of its grandeur and impact becoming lost in an expansive surrounding space.
