A Note From Our Guest Editor*, Geraldine: Here’s a post with my top five picks from Designjunction, one of the largest design trade shows at the London Design Festival.

Every year London showcases the best and emerging talents in design at this event. Being an interiors and design blogger, this was an important date for me in the diary.

Designjunction was located at Granary square in King’s Cross, a now regenerated area with many amazing restaurants. It’s also where the famed Central Saint Martins school of art is located.

I thought I’d give you a visual journey of my five favourite finds.

blackbody lights

The lighting masterpiece above is by Blackbody. Stunning right? Blackbody uses OLED technology in their lighting, a component based on the latest development of nanotechnology. The light emitted is energy efficient, sharp and clear.

velvet couch

Green is still very much on trend this Autumn. I’m totally in love with this quilted velvet sofa with its hexagonal patterns. It’s called Cloud FR and is by Kirkby Design.

pink table

Green may be in, but pink in my eyes never goes out of fashion, and just look how wonderful pink and green goes together.

This pink console table by Bethan Gray was one of my favourite finds. It’s part of Bethan’s Shamsian Paua collection, which uses Paua abalone shell inlay sourced from the coastal waters of New Zealand and has been paired with birds-eye maple.

wooden greenhouse

Don’t have a conservatory or garden, but want to embrace the indoor greens trend?

No worries, get your very own wooden greenhouse designed by Atelier 2+ for Design House Stockholm. So cool, right?


I always have a soft spot for the prints by Tom Pigeon and adore this new collection called Play, so named because they comprise of bold, playful patterns influenced by childhood building blocks.

Hope you have enjoyed my curated finds at Designjunction 2016! Which one is your favourite?
