Our collaboration with John Booth, launched at this week's London Design Fair, has seen us grace the cover of the Evening Standard as it previews London Design Festival. Usually, getting on the cover on a newspaper would do us nicely for the week, but this one has proved extra special.
What a week: London Design Fair and Wool Carpet & Rug Award
Not only have we secured a front cover spot in the Evening Standard, we've also picked up two awards and opened the doors on our largest ever stand at LDF.
On Monday, we headed off to Harrogate for the Wool Carpet and Rug Awards. Supported by Prince Charles' Campaign for Wool and British Wool, the awards are acknowledged as the best in the UK carpet and rug industry and attract entries from all the top makers and manufacturers, including household names like Brintons.
Well, imagine our delight when we secured two awards for some of our most recent works. First up, Sebastian Wrong's Wrong Angle won 'Designer Collaboration of the Year' and then Marmalade by Carmellia Indrawati won 'Hand-knotted Rug of the Year'. Epic news and needless to say we celebrated pretty well till the small hours.
Then, to wrap it all up, Thursday saw the opening of London Design Fair with our biggest ever stand. Showcasing new works from Camille Walala, 2LG Studio, 18.01 London, Kitty Joseph, Sebastian Wrong, Carmellia Indrawati and our Award shortlisted Leopard, we had an amazing first day and looking forward to welcoming loads of design lovers to the stand of East London's friendliest rug dealer.
We have been overwhelmed by all the positive responses we received. It was a pleasure meeting all of you, see you next year!
