London, England - Decorex International Interior Design Trade Show 2013

There was a lot of drama in the stands at this year's Decorex International interior design home show in its new location at Kensington Palace. There were stands that rose all the way up to the ceiling, belly dancers, costumed characters, and even one stand with two floors fashioned after a London townhouse. Always a source of great inspiration, here's my pictorial roundup of the show:

Another great friend of mine is Stuart Scott, who hand makes and individually signs and numbers each piece of his modern furniture, crafted in England:

Stuart Scott's new Saddle Up armchair is handmade from solid timber sourced from a local mill and features a shoulder hide seat and back. The hide is crafted by hand, edge striped, dyed and creased and comes from the traditional tanning town of Santa Croce sull’Arno, Tuscany. 

Exquisite hand painted wallpapers, fabrics, porcelain and hand carved furniture by the famous de Gournay:
