Following a fabulous 10 days of design held at the British Design Festival where many travelled from around the world to participate, London is heating up again in October with the Best of Britannia. From interiors to fashion the Best of Britannia will showcase a splendiferous variety of great British design. Here are some of my favourite exhibitors.
One of the many brands appearing at the show, Lie Down I Think I Love You is fabulous, focusing on accessories and vintage finds. “Design ideals include English eccentricism, nostalgia and romance…”
When it comes to British design, vintage influenced products are highly desirable as they contain a plentiful amount of character and charm. mydeco.com, also exhibiting at Best of Britannia, has a great range of vintage inspired pieces. This design from 3D community member starsector is a wonderfully vintage inspired concept.
Designer Helen Gordon is also inspired by vintage finds especially vintage children’s clothing. Her collections and designs are quite beautiful and evoke freshness alongside a pretty vintage feel. Specialising in beautiful animal and floral prints Helen does bring out the best in British design.
Hope you liked my top vintage picks. I’m excited – Best of Britannia will be a wonderful event showcasing superbly designed and manufactured products which are sure to inspire!
