Discovering INTERIORS UK - Colours, Textures and Lights

Posted by Mark Godsell-Fletcher on

On Tuesday I was honoured to have been invited to attend INTERIORS UK.  INTERIORS UK is a trade show dedicated to interior professionals, multiple and independent retailers.  Spread over 5 halls in Birmingham's NEC, this was the biggest show I have ever attended.  With over 500 exhibitors INTERIORS UK is the most comprehensive interiors event showcasing new products, the latest trends and networking opportunities. INTERIORS UK Many designers visit the show to see key trends, meet new designers and find exciting products. Here are some of my highlights. The G-Plan Vintage G-Plan G Plan Vintage is a collection inspired by original pieces from G Plan’s mid-century archive and created in collaboration with celebrated British design team, Hemingway Design – experts in vintage projects. Culinary Concepts Culinary Concepts was one of those stands that I could have spent hours looking round.  With a wealth of detailed silver, beautiful hand crafted pieces and interesting lighting, it was a stand that was constantly busy. Culinary Concepts Lighting There was such an incredible range of Lighting that it had its own dedicated hall. INTERIORS UK LIGHTING Clifton Lighting, Fantastic Lighting, Dar Lighting One of my favourite stands within the Lighting Hall was Lladró.  I knew of Lladró due to their stunning collections of figurines but I had no idea they did lights.  Launched as part of their series of product launches to celebrate their 60th Anniversary.  Lladró has put together a wide spectrum of porcelain lighting fixtures to add a distinctive personality to all kinds of interiors. Specially dazzling are the new  lamps in the Belle de Nuit collection, a winning combination of the warmth of porcelain with a variety of bright cheerful colors. Lladró - INTERIORS UK Todd Knights The Todd Knights stand may have been small but their elegance dominated the space.  Each finial is handcrafted, large, full of detailed design and of timeless classic influences. Todd Knights Textiles Fabrics and soft furnishings were tactile and colourful.  From big weaved cushions and rugs, to art inspired upholstered chairs, there was something for everyone to fall in love with. 2014-01-23_0006 I certainly left INTERIORS UK feeling completely inspired and my mind racing with ideas.  If you get the opportunity to go in the future I would highly recommend it.  But I couldn't end here without sharing my favourites to...
