"Pure style is my way of life... a blueprint for living in the 21st Century"
Borders on show
01 October 2013
It`s the time of year for London`s crop of interior design shows. Last week, much excitement! our Toast wallpaper border, see above and below decorated the World of Interiors stand at Decorex.
I manned the House & Garden stand at the same show, during the eighties` when chintz prints, swags and bows and frilly Austrian blinds were the life blood of interior decoration. The aesthetic today is so much more eclectic, everything from modern textures to retro Cabbages and Roses chic.
My Pure Style eye is caught by tiles in jewel colours from Habibi and Bert&May. Hibou wallpapers and fabrics for children have a Cath Kidston flavour, but in a less sugary palette. David Seyfried supplies among the best small classic sofas that I have seen since I purchased two from him over twenty years ago. And there are beautiful one-offs from Fine Cell Work Fine Cell Work a social enterprise that trains prisoners in paid, skilled, creative needlework.
