Trade events are integral for bringing the community together in a separate environment from the online world, not only to network, but also to learn and discuss the issues that we face as a community and the advancements that need to be made to build a stronger design pedigree.
In this month’s issue we continue to explore the upcoming London Design Festival preview with an exclusive interview with 100% Design’s Show Director, William Knight. He expresses his hope for the future of the UK design scene that – having already made huge strides – still has some way to go to become a prominent and constructive role in decision-making and policy planning. Read the full interview with William on page 12. Elsewhere, this month’s Inspire guides you through the different events of London Design Festival with all the essential information to make sure you get the most out of this valuable festival.
Also in this issue, Inex prepares for the upcoming season and trend overload by looking ahead. Custom furniture expert Justin Van Breda explores the latest key fashion revivals on page 32, antique expert Owen Pacey identifies how to marry traditional features with contemporary home comforts on page 40, and this month’s bedroom focus demonstrates how to use different pattern, tone and textures to create a calming environment perfect for rejuvenation.
