The London Design Festival + Focus/18

Every year, London hosts a number of exciting design events. Now that the summer is officially over and we all find ourselves back at work, we look forward to the amazing events that come with the cooler weather. September and October are busy months for the design industry and we at SA Baxter get beyond excited about all the buzz that comes along with them. 

The annual London Design festival commenced on Sunday 16th September and ran through to 23rd September. The week full of inspiration kicked off with Focus and Decorex. On Wednesday Olympia London opened up its doors to visitors of 100% Design and East London hosted one of the biggest trade shows in the industry – the London Design Fair. 

Because of all the inspiration flowing through to the UK during these events, London once again became a premier destination for all interior design insiders, architects, trade specialists, manufacturers, suppliers and media. And of course, it didn’t escape our attention either! 

The efforts and long preparations of the Design Centre Chelsea Harbour’s (DCCH) staff finally came to fruition on Sunday 16th September, where there were unique installations, exquisite decorations and display cases filled with colours and patterns.  

Throughout the week, all of the showrooms here at DCCH had their doors open, greeting people with food and cocktails, and some even hosting interesting workshops, inspiring group discussions. 

DCCH saw hundreds of people coming every day. We at SA Baxter had the pleasure of welcoming designers from across Europe, Russia, Asia and Australia. We shared our unique story and familiarised guests with the lost-wax investment casting production technique.  

On Monday 17th of September, we attended the annual Focus/18 celebration. Salsa Night was the selected theme for this year’s party. The whole Design Centre was beautifully lit up, talented performers danced to Latin music, while the DJ was playing her best beats. 

The party exceeded our expectations and we thank the whole DCCH team for organising this event and contributing to the fun and excitement of the design community here in London.
