For the Chelsea Flower Show

For the occasion of the 2021 London Design Festival and the triumphant return of the Chelsea Flower Show, our London showroom has undergone a seasonal transformation with the installation of brand new, hand painted wallpapers and masterfully staged displays throughout.

Constructed especially for the week, a glorious arch of fresh flowers surrounding our entrance mirrored the verdant wallpaper installed within – a living interpretation of Chinoiserie’s ultimate appeal.

From Suffolk to London: florist Lucy Vail erected a pop up flower shop, bringing an explosion of British Blooms to our showroom, surrounded by the magnificent ‘Erdem’ Chinoiserie upon Golden Yellow dyed silk. Homegrown Dahlias were hand picked by Lucy from her family-run Floriston Flower Farm, with Lucy and her team creating bouquets throughout the week.

In the adjoining salon, a crisp rendition of the ‘Chatsworth’ design on

White Metal gilded paper acted as a glowing backdrop for an imagined bathroom: an elegant setting composed around a majestic bath from Drummonds overflowing with gypsophila – its gleaming copper the perfect foil to the hand gilded walls, illuminated with a pair standing column lamps from Lorfords antiques.

Our window displays play host this Autumn to the ‘Botanical Studies’ design created with Michael S. Smith – its finely rendered depictions of plant specimens on enlarged sheets of India Tea Paper a background to sculptural pieces from Brownrigg antiques and columns from Retrouvius.
