I must admit I am super, über excited about show season this year and those shows which debuted last year are back with creative vengeance. At the moment I’m carefully selecting which ones to go to and which press events to see. With so little time and just so much to see I’m very excited about AW12. So whilst I’m currently trying to finalise my interiors events schedule including press days let me run through my top shows:
I attended Design Junction last year and was totally blown away. Usually some shows can be quite stuffy and HOP Interiors does not do stuffy so this was such a breath of fresh air! New to the scene in 2011 this show has great seminars, installations and products. What I enjoyed about the event was the fact that there were new and up-and-coming designers of which had such an outstanding level of talent. This year, as well as the designers and talks I’m really looking forward to see Canteen’s pop up restaurant with a Transport for London theme. Being a huge fan of Transport for London’s iconic design I’m sure it will not disappoint.

Did someone say a breath of fresh air… It was my very first visit to Tent last year (I know, where have I been) and I could kick myself for not going any sooner. Fully chilled with a fun, quirky vibe this was a show I vowed to attend next year and ‘check’ it’s on my list! Need I say more.
This month seems full of anniversaries with the fabulous 35th anniversary of Decorex. Usually the more straight-jacketed of the shows last years was a lot more chilled out. With a nautical theme last year it was full of great design and seminars and had a more, dare I say, relaxed atmosphere. This year it’s all about heritage honey! And I’m so excited as the lady that is Vivienne Westwood will be designing the entrance room sets for the event! Eeeek!
Last but by no means least I’m looking forward to attending this years Focus event at Chelsea Harbour. What I really enjoy about Focus is the wide section and array of new collections all housed under one fabulous glass roof! In addition to that the long row of interior stores along the King’s Road open up their doors to ring in the new collections too and I’m totally like a kid in an interiors sweet shop!
Which shows are your favourite? Will you be attending any this season? If you do and you see me, be sure to say hello!
