This year we were delighted to be invited by Eporta to show our Wave Sideboard in the new limed oak finish on their stand at Sleep Event 2015. This is a great event held annually at the Business Design Centre in Islington, where hotel design is showcased, and innovative brands and suppliers exhibit their ranges.
This year Conran and Partners created a pop up bar inspired by the Alice in Wonderland story, which was a fantastically atmospheric space and perfect place to pause and relax in between a diverse seminar program, a plethora of brands to see and very creatively designed ‘sleep sets’.
The event was a great success, so many thanks to Eporta for inviting us along and all of the team for their hard work!

This September we showcased our latest collections of cabinet and upholstery at Design Junction, as part of the 2015 London Design Festival. We had a great show and enjoyed showcasing fantastic collaborations with Paint By Conran Tori Murphy. Held in the magnificent former Central Saint Martins building in Holborn, the new venue proved to be a huge success. Original features and quirky architectural details remain beautifully preserved, and given it was the place that Sir Terence Conran himself studied, the venue fit the show perfectly.
Our stand featured the new Chelsea collection of marble top tables, the fantastically comfortable and stylish Marchwood and Salone sofas, and the Duchess chair. We used Paint by Conran paint colours on our floating gallery of sofa shapes, showcasing the paint colours as well as our varied upholstery range!
Paint by Conran launched 18 months ago, and has already built a fantastic reputation for high quality paints with a huge range of colours available, 96 and counting! Paired with their beautifully illustrated paint tins, and with colours inspired by the British countryside, the brand is going from strength to strength.
Tori Murphy is a British textile designer with a wide range of fabrics and soft furnishing products such as cushions, throws and kitchen accessories. Her collections are inspired by her childhood spent on the Irish coast, and include Chevy, Elca, Harbour Stripe and Boulder which was used to upholster the ‘Duchess’ chair.
Many thanks to everyone who came along to see us, and to all those involved for a great show!

There was a great mention on the Elle Decoration website recently of our collaboration with the lovely Tori Murphy for our Duchess chair. An ideal combination of form and fabric! The Boulder fabric is from Tori Murphy’s new collection which is influenced by her childhood summers spent on the Irish coast. It is a 100% Merino Lambswool fabric, and made in Nottingham.
Our comfortable and endlessly practical Duchess chair is perfect for a library area, sitting room, or even in a bedroom to curl up and enjoy a good book in. A real match made in heaven, and another great example of how you can customise our range of upholstery with our ‘Customer’s Own Material’ feature!

Christmas came early this year, at the Portrait Communications Press Show last week, where we unveiled some of our new products, along with some of our best sellers. These included the Stanford and Henley sideboards, the Chelsea marble tables range and the cast iron and black and brass shelving units.
We were especially excited to unveil our collaboration with Tori Murphy, using one of her gorgeous new fabrics, ‘Boulder’ on our Duchess chair. The combination looks fantastic, and we are proud that this is the third year that we have collaborated with Tori Murphy. Her fabrics are all designed, woven and made in England, and feature bold geometric patterns and beautiful rich woven textures.
Despite a tube strike, and some really high temperatures, everyone pulled together to create a brilliant show, and we were so happy to be a part of it. Some of the other brands included Jonathan Adler, Tori Murphy, Original BTC and Ian Mankin.
