London Design Fair 2019

Well it was quite an event this year! Here’s Blue Patch featured on CGTN Le Journal.

London Design Fair - Blue Patch


We had a wonderful time at London Design Fair. Our stand attracted visitors interested in sustainable and British made products – especially those keen to try out the chairs.

Setting up our stand was great fun, here’s Gavin from Full Grown and Holly from team Blue Patch getting the sign the right height!

The members also had a chance to meet and catch up, which is always a really nice aspect of being part of the Blue Patch Collective.

Our stand was the perfect proportion for showcasing the collective, with the pieces flowing across the space, giving visitors excellent visibility.

The flooring ‘squares’ on the wall are from Atkinson & Kirby and attracted those looking for high quality wooden floors manufactured in Britain with FSC accreditation. Raw Studio’s hanging chair was in high demand, this is a rare photo of it unoccupied!

The colours seemed made for each other and Edward Bulmer’s plastic free paint in Indigo brought it all together. The Bulmers kindly sponsored the stand colour this year. Many people stopped to pick up their new colour chart and parents were very keen on the safety aspect of the paint for babies bedrooms.

Alice from Full Grown being a marvellous host.

Full Grown’s slow grown chair proved a prime location for a series of portraits of visitors.

Camilla Thomas with Hannah from Ian Dunn

Camilla’s gentle pallet and undulating design tempted visitors into a spot of shopping.

Nicola Wilson, Denby’s brilliant designer with her latest work, Studio Grey.

Denby and Wade are both household names and enjoying increasing popularity with those wanting high quality, authentic British china.

Poured Project was a hit with Interior Designers, especially with a bespoke service available!

This neat chair, beautifully finished in Scottish Ash comes as part of a range with a table, bench and desk, handcrafted by Namon Gaston.

We launched the Blue Patch catalogue, Edition 1. On the cover, Camilla Thomas Textiles. We hope it will provide a useful resource for those seeking high quality, sustainable contemporary design from the British Isles.

Blue Patch will be back at London Design Fair in 2020, hope to see you there.
