The Interior Design show for Interior Designers by Interior Designers!
Design Central UK was conceived over breakfast in Chelsea Harbour. Having spent over 10 years travelling to London to visit suppliers and see new collections, Interior Designer Cath McCubbin thought it made sense to bring those companies and collections to Designers at their own location.
Cath says, “Our aim is to make your day an enjoyable and constructive one. With all your favourite suppliers in one place, we help you by offering, free entry, free parking and a comprehensive show guide that can be used as a resource after the event. Delicious lunches available to buy and all hosted at the stunning Rockbeare Manor.”
Don’t miss out on this brand new, annual event that, if it follows in its northern partners footsteps, promises to grow year on year in popularity.
Benefits of attending include:
Here are some of the great brands you’ll be able to see:
You simply can’t miss this year’s essential design event.
Here’s The Woven Edge round-up of the top home decor trends to look out for to help you stay ahead of the curve in 2019.
Read our latest blog and you’ll discover that many of our key interior trends for 2019 offer a way to update existing looks at home, such as “Back to Bohemian”, or “Organic Matter”. This means you don’t have to redecorate your whole home to be on trend, just a few tweaks and you’ll keep ahead of the design curve.
Animal print in all it’s variation continues to be a popular pattern in both fashion and interiors. Abstract versions of this classic trend gives us a different look with mirrored effects, fragmented form and striped design to break up bold pattern.

The digital age has moved on beyond what we may have thought possible, making pattern design a paradise and playground for designers to create new looks. Trends see us using printing techniques more, allowing greater colour capability with purposefully pixelated edges. From this we can get photographic prints onto all sorts of substrates whilst linear overlays add movement with multidirectional pattern giving a modern alternative to woven material.

Vibrant overlays of colour bring all varieties of checks to life. Mix these with traditional colour combinations to modernise staple tartans and use chunky yarn to emphasise stripes. If you don’t dare to go bold keep things tonal or monochrome to give a subtle nod to this key trend.

As it becomes increasingly important to create less impact on the environment, eco-friendly products are at the forefront of topical trends. Natural looking pattern is an important theme bringing back terrazo and rustic products. Organic materials like cork also bring back a sense of nomadic styling against industrial influenced surfaces.

This trend allows nature to take back the landscape to it’s untouched and untamed beauty. Purposefully left to regenerate wildlife and natural habitats has been of great importance to balance out our busy urban city lifestyle and sustain a greener future for generations to come. Boundaries are blurred where indoors and outdoors come together for a sense of peace and mindfulness. Indoor plants have soared within
home interior trends and have been proven to create a happier living environment. #planteriordesign. The idea of city forests have taken focus in our ever growing awareness of our surroundings. Colours are earthy but soft with clay, terracotta and rust adding a contrast of warmth against brighter tones of forest green, moss and verdigris. Textures are rustic and make use of natural elements of stone, wood and vegetation. Crackled surfaces of worn and weathered elements allow for abstract colour movement and oxidised effects.
Tracing routes back to a cultural heritage of nostalgic times, designs take a worldly influence whilst still remembering individual personality. Designs have an aged look with textures of weathered wood and stone layered up with patterns of decorative blooms and botanical elements. Faded prints of flora and fauna embrace a vintage look often drawn with linear qualities to give more of a simplistic graphical look. Colours include a bright and cheery ochre, mahogany, marine blue, cardamon, greige, sail white, brass and haint blue.
Minimal design takes on organic abstract style within this Solace trend. Layers of natural elements creating landscaped pattern. A considered palette of almost neutral tones; blue now being a close third behind cream ones and grey keep a balance of tone, not being too bold or too brash in contrast. Harmonising is key with colours bleeding into one another for subtle change. A search for silence is described with Antarctic reference of white space and soft texture. Grey tones of haze and storm sit alongside purple infused twilight blue and amethyst grey with only maroon making any difference of colour impact.
Colour and light is the centre focus for this trend where experimental clashes of pattern create high contrast and a curiosity to discover more. Designs make use of simple polka dots, bright accents and black outlines creating a very pop art style.
Our latest "Construct Collection" is completely on the Vibe trend. These stunning and dramatic, modern designs create a brilliant talking piece and really add the wow factor to any hall way or contemporary styled home. We designed these and had them handmade in readiness for the Decorex Show where they proved to be very popular, want one for Christmas? You'll need to act fast! Our Vibe collection is available in handtufted in 2 sizes 120cm x 180cm (£950) and 160cm x 230cm (£1620).

The Woven Edge are proud members of the GoodWeave Association
When you purchase a rug, you can never be sure of its integrity but when you invest in one of our luxury bespoke rugs not only are you purchasing a beautiful, hand-made addition to your home, but you are making an ethical choice too.
Our passion is for beautiful rugs, but we also desire a fair and equitable industry – one which aims to eradicate child labour in all its forms. This is the reason we support GoodWeave, and it is why, when you choose one of our luxury rugs, you know that it is free from the unjust labour of a child.
We want your purchase to make a positive impact on the global manufacturing of rug producing, which is why all our rugs are GoodWeave certified. But what does this mean?
End of child labour
152 million children worldwide are trapped in child labour. We are committed to manufacturing our rugs without the use of children in exploitative working conditions. As members of the GoodWeave association, we support its aims to free the one in 10 children who from aged 5, are labouring in the global economy.
Freedom and education for children
We believe that all children should have the freedom to play and learn without fear of harm. ‘Carpet kids’ sit at looms, using sharp tools to weave carpets for up to 14 hours per day. They are often under threat of violence and will never get the opportunity to go to school. By purchasing one of our rugs, you are helping us to support programs to free and educate these children.
A coherent and consistent standard
We adhere to GoodWeave’s certification standard which works to facilitate transparent monitoring and verify decent working conditions in rug producing countries. This includes setting the minimum age of work at 14, preventing young people being employed in hazardous work, and increasing opportunities for education.
By supporting GoodWeave we are helping to raise awareness, which results in transparent supply chains and production free from exploitative labor practices.
A symbol of certification
Every one of our rugs carries the GoodWeave label, which is issued only to licensed producers selling products to licensed importers. This means that no child, forced or bonded labour was used to make it.
As members of the GoodWeave association, our customers know that we take a serious stance on child labour. Our commitment to children’s welfare and worker’s rights is woven into the very fabric of our beautiful rugs.
Finally we have seen the sun for the first time this year and colour has burst into action and opened our eyes to key trends. Pantone has demonstrated key pops of colour reflecting recent exhibition and trend direction from Heimtex and London Design Week amongst various other shows so far in 2018. Embracing bright colour will be the standout trend for Spring 2018 and the Pantone palette features in our blog Top Tips for a Luxurious Living Room.
London Design Week Highlights.
The trends brought to us by the showrooms of Chelsea Harbour this spring, bring us sophisticated and intricate design with a wealth of confidence in bright colour and bold print. The depth and attention to detail stands up to further scrutiny rewarding your eyes upon their second look. Neutrals are brought to us in natural, unbleached materials such as sea grass, wool, slubbed silks and cottons with a celebratory splash of champagne to add some class. Metallic tones of silver and stone greys pair well with mineral and elemental inspired palettes of green malakite and peridot, showing the first shoots of spring greens. Other dominant accents brought us shades of yellow including butter milk, mustard and ochre. Indigo, teal and peacock blues will be big and pair up well with a warmth brought by coral through to rouge and burnt orange. With sunshine hopes for spring and summer come playful but subtle ice cream tones of raspberries, mint, vanilla and pistachio as shown below in our colour stories
London Craft Week returns to the capital for its fourth edition and tickets for the special event are available here http://dcch.co.uk/London-Craft-Week-2018. 'Reflecting a rising global appreciation of exceptional craftsmanship, it attracts a discerning audience united in their admiration of beauty, substance and authenticity'... if the hand crafted look is for you check out how our rugs are made https://www.thewovenedge.com/rug-making-process.html.
Watercolour and painterly feels are still apparent, easy on the eye and fresh with texture flowing on all levels. Marbled effects, cloudy treatments, washed out bleeds and ikat influences extend the trend surrounding indigo dyed products and handmade techniques. These handmade elements mixed with recycled goods really highlight current world issues and just shows how much influence on interior trends this can create.
Spring Has Sprung
Combinations of green tones and pastel shades of lilac inspired lavender and blue are a combination born to be together. They bring meadow inspired interiors and accentuate the need for foliage inside our homes. Farrow and Ball have created a refreshing look using their Pitch Blue, no.222 and Calke Green, No.34 giving us a real countryside inspired decorative scheme. http://www.farrow-ball.com
An Ice Cream Cone full of Colour
Choose your flavour and sprinkle a joy of pastel shades over the top to mix and match shades of coral, pale blue, lilac grey and peach. The power of pastel is strong and injects lightness and a calming sense into a room. We have seen this flood not only into the interiors market but the catwalk too, really bringing fashion to floor. Use multiple shades combined with simple abstract forms of floral and fauna to add some contrast. https://www.celine.com/en-gb/home/
The Perfect Imperfect
Having a focus on the revival of handcrafted products, 2018 has seen an
influx of the changing of attitudes towards the effects we have on the planet and from this we have a new found acceptance for perfect imperfection and the recycling and reuse of materials such as plastic and rubber. Deriving from Japanese cultures of wabi sabi its all about bringing nature back home and being content with whats we have. Handmade crafts such as shibori and woven products are brought back to life within this trend.
Heimtextil 2018 incorporated this movement as one of their future trends. It is the art of finding beauty in the something that is incomplete and not conforming to what is believed to be pure.
The Power of Pigment. Red and Blue
Graduations of blue and red use as tone on tone colour palettes are big news. Design is kept simple with layers of contrasting scales of light and dark gradations of colour.
Cherry Tomato and Palace Blue from Pantones collection of Spring Summer 2018 colours show us the brightest sides of these bold hues. Red is seen to be the relaxing influence coming across as confident but soft, whilst Blues encourage energy being uplifting and fresh. Dior seen on the catwalk, combines multiple trends of translucent layers with a reflective edge of molecular design in a rich and appropriately royal blue colouring.
