Making my way up stairs I came into a room filled with lights. I was really impressed my the experimental selection from table and free standing lamps to celling lighting options. I always think lighting is one of the most important elements within in a space. I was particulary drawn to this round light with fisher mans rope and net, the shade is handmade in opal acrylic, in white, orange or natural light subtle light was fantastic. In the far corner of the room I couldn't help but notice PXL having a distinct crayola colour outter design bold and fun. These were designed by Scandinavian design house Zero.
As more businesses are being based from home desk and storage are a key factor.
Dare Studio have come up with a great solution. I loved this traditional yet modern approach to this great example of writing desk. Available in solid American Black Walnut or American White Oak the writing pad and drawer linings are available in a choice of leathers by Dare Studio with a Veneered top and non leather version are also available.
The complimentary Katakana occasional chair also by Dare Studio works well, if you wanted to you could mix a ultra modern chair may be this reproduction Eames Armchair by Vitra.
Dare Studio states on their website that "The katakana desk is designed for use with a laptop, with special compartments for power supply and clever cable management for unsightly wires. Another key feature to this design are the tapered drawers which keep your pens always at the front of the drawer".
I just loved the craftsmanship and elegance of the design a real future heirloom I reckon.
What do you think about this 2D tile surface different right?
Printed Cushions always add a splash of colour to a blank canvas of a room those finishing touches make a home more personal. These great examples from a variety designers from Theo are good examples prices range from £38-£ 55.
Dashing through the small rooms up stairs I spotted these great watches by Uniform Wares 100 Series at £ 110 I had to sneak this into this post as thes watches were too hot not to mention. My next stop was the House Of Detention based in a underground Victorian prison and guess what more gems were discovered.
Art in chairs, the comfort factor was none existent but the print was challenging designed by print label David David the collection called Glass Hill. It was a surprise to see their trade mark geometric shapes on furniture as the design house usaly works in the relms of fashion it's beautiful don't you think?

The House of Detention had a surreal edge for sure another of my favourite pieces was this this light/wall art which resembled the moon. This three day event was a must for designers and creatives to even people who want to seek some real inspiration regarding quality innovative designer furniture and accessories. If you didn't get round to seeing it this year make sure it's a must for 2012.
