So we're just surfacing from 4 days stood inside a windowless shed in Earls Court but I'm pleased to say we're all still smiling! It's been an enjoyable show at 100% Design this year from both a visitor's and an exhibitor's perspective... plenty to see and good attendance. We were located at the far end of the hall in the 'Futures' section where there was a good mix of people and product, from the elegant timber furniture of Young & Norgate to the experimental and exciting concept lighting & architecture of D*Haus.
Elsewhere in the hall there was an equally eclectic mix - from the elegance of Dare Studio and minimalism of Pottinger + Cole to the complete over the top audacity of Maximo Riera's animal chair collection (which everyone seemed to be talking about!)
This year also had a large international input with stands showcasing contemporary design from Norway, Korea and Argentina to name but a few... but our favourite was 'South West View' Contemporary Design from Chile - particularly the natural simplicity of the woven lampshades by The Andes House.
