Design Junction was the venue for the launch of our first range of furniture during the London Design Festival. It was an exhausting but ultimately successful week and it was great to be part of such a well-organised and beautifully curated show.

Despite our busy schedule we managed to find some time to get around the rest of the show where we saw some great work from fellow designers and manufacturers. In this post we want to share some of things we came across that were interesting and inspiring as well as highlighting some companies who are going the extra mile to design and manufacture things in the right way.
Gavin Coyle designs and manufactures everything from his studio in London. His company have a fantastic range of beautifully made products and we couldn’t leave the show without taking one of the brilliant Companion Racks home with us.

We were very fortunate to be exhibiting opposite Briggs and Cole, a Glasgow based art and design outfit. They exhibited a range of stunning textiles as well as the Templetonian Table with a hand etched mirror top.
