London Design Fair 2019

Sustainable furniture, ceramics, glass and textiles, all made in Britain…

London Design Fair was a huge success this year, our stand was an exhibition highlight and Blue Patch became a ‘superbrand’ too! Here’s Blue Patch featured on CGTN Le Journal.

London Design Fair – Blue Patch

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 luxure, sustainable brands, 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  sustainably 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.

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

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

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

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.
