New year, new you, right? We think you’re fab always, however, the new year does bring a sense of renewal and the best way to enjoy it is by taking stock of the year before. Here are some of our highlights…

 

  1. Our first TLS Thanksgiving Dinner

This past November we went all in on this very American tradition, all about the enjoyment of food in community and giving thanks for our blessings. We were honoured to have had a sold out event raising an incredible £15,000 for Beast Cancer charity The Haven. Guests enjoyed our live auction, our unique raffle, a 3 course dinner, live music, laughter and wine, and we can’t wait to do it again this year.

2. The Joy of Japanese

On a giving note, this past year we donated a styling session to a charity event and we had the joy of creating a look that encapsulated Japanese vibes, a dash of colour and modular furniture. Our client was thrilled with the result and so were we. We love the hexagon shelf units as it can either be used in a vertical position for storage or, simply flip them to create a coffee table. Although ikat is not strictly Japanese we love the geometric addition to the room, as well as, the hyper saturated colours which make this TLS look complete.

3. The Shows Must Go On

It’s always a pleasure to attend design shows in London and abroad, it’s not only a great way to get inspired for the year ahead but also an opportunity to give faces to brands, and humanise the online world in which we live and thrive in. 100% Design and Design Junction are always at the forefront of our minds, one’s a classic and the other is always creating unique spaces that make the city of London come to life. In addition, we’re still dreaming of Lambart & Browne’s bar at Decorex and taking the teachings on trends from the Focus/18 Style Library and applying them to our buying plans for this year.
