Tent London loves ‘art-led design for the home’


Well it’s back to earth with a bump after a whirlwind of a week down at Tent London! Our first interiors show and what a way to start! Tent London was a truly international event with over 19,000 buyers, press and public coming from far and wide to see the wide array of contemporary interior products on offer. Tent London was one of the largest interior design trade shows taking place during the London Design Festival and was held at the Old Truman Brewery, Brick Lane in London’s trendy East End.

We took the opportunity to launch our first cushion and wallpaper collections, inspired by the art of Charles Robinson and Haroun Haward, and were really excited to show off our new art-inspired home products. It was especially rewarding to explain the concept and ethic behind Fenton, of bringing art into the home by promoting and supporting new artists and using their work to inspire our surface designs, a concept that everyone really responded positively to. We had no end of fantastic feedback about the quality of our products, the appeal of our designs and the uniqueness of the concept, from journalists, buyers and public alike. All in all it was a great show.

And while we were at Tent we rubbed shoulders with all sorts of other talented creative types. Opposite us we had the lovely Nell from Coucou Manou (www.coucoumanou.com) with her bright, bold and beautifully crafted furniture, as well as John and the team from the quirky www.magmabooks.com, Azhar of http://www.duhovich.com with his wonderfully eccentric lighting and the intriguingly conceptual http://coworkscreative.co.uk/ (loved the white gloves guys!). We also had the great pleasure of finally meeting Keith and Mark of www.minimoderns.com, extremely successful and admired surface designers, and really lovely guys to boot. As well as many more truly talented people. What a fantastic week!
