Who said office chairs were boring? 

The iconic Aeron chair by Herman Miller certainly proves this isn't the case...  a real American sport comes to Clerkenwell this week.

My favourite today : Ondaretta

 Spanish furniture brand Ondaretta have a beautiful collection in contemporary hues and clean lines. Using raw materials and inspired but the surfaces, that adapt to our shape and movement, like sand on a beach.  The way their furniture is configurated aims to bring people closer together, establish links and strengthen relationships... bringing charm and comfort to meeting and facilitate conversations. 

A creative collection for creative types -  I'm feeling inspired!

Don't joke with Tea time!

When it comes to dinner plates or tea sets,  in recent years the tableware industry has seen a surge in colour and textures. Flat colour is almost a thing from the past, and the key to the perfect table is personalisation, feel and style. 

Tea time in the UK is no joke. Visit any London office between 3 and 5pm and you can be sure you'll find a few employees sipping the golden brew. And, whether it's simply with a splash of milk or served with a delicious cream scone, tea time is always 'lovely' , as the British would say.

But tea time has become a serious business in France as well. Almost exactly hundred years ago,  an Englishman by the name of Thomas Hall was eager to promote tea time and fine faïence in France and founded Gien. Originally producing sophisticated pieces of French-made faïence inspired by English know-how, today the brand is a decorative arts favourite, recognised the world over.

Keeping up with new trends, Gien has brought out new collections that feature an array of colours and shapes: 50 different patterns and over 3000 references, ranging from plates to unique hand-painted pieces, created both from archive material and by prominent contemporary artists. What a success! 

What's your favourite? We like the floral and geometric Dominoté collection,  in collaboration with up-and-coming wallpaper makers Antionette Poisson, as well as the more traditional motifs of Les dépareillées, from Gien’s 19th century archives.

Looking for inspiration in London?

Here’s a few ideas of who to follow this week -  leading designers and journalists in the industry.

Find out what they are up to during Clerkenwell Design Week so as not to miss a trick.

Come and say bonjour!

Stop by KIOSK by 14 Septembre, a new French design destination during Clerkenwell Design Week. We’ve brought you an innovative selection of our agency’s interiors clients from across the channel: Made in France lighting, furniture, tableware and material manufacturers from the likes of Sammode Studio, Maiori, Gien, Maison Fragile, Ober Surfaces and CELC - The European Confederation of Flax And Hemp.
Come and meet our London team and discover a selection of nouvelle vague petites maisons, classic greats and gallic savoir-faire.

Where to find us

Walk 5 minutes from Farringdon station, or jump off the bus at St John Street, and you’ll find us on the corner of Clerkenwell Green, at number 20. Nestled right in the centre, we’re a stone’s throw from Clerkenwell Design Week’s Project and Elements exhibits. A happy coincidence, our So French!showcase is almost directly opposite the British Collection exhibit – so come and say hi (but don’t mention Brexit).
