September is always the busiest month in the design calendar with events taking place across London nearly every day. As such it always takes a little time to review, digest and contemplate the sights, sounds and trends that characterise each particular year. This year, London Design Festival also came hot on the heels of the launch of Houzz UK and we were exhibiting at 100% Design for the first time which was brilliant and exciting and totally exhausting! All of which could explain why i’m only now posting my trend round up from the show. I’ve posted a few of my own photos below as they sum up the top trends for me – namely, copper and bronze, concrete, modern marquetry and upcycled materials – and you can click through to read my full trend report on Houzz.
