Design Junction

The London Design Festival is now coming to and end and yesterday I managed to dip into one last show before it finishes. This one is called Design Junction and held in the Granary Square area of King's Cross. Apart from seeing the shows, it was great to go up there and see how much the place has changed over the pat few years. There has been a lot of new development there and Central Saint Martins is now based there in a stunningly converted warehouse building.

Visitors were met by this impressive installation of arches decorated with varying styles of tile designs in Granary Square.

The Canopy section of the show was an area dedicated to more than 75 boutique pop-up shops showing a mix of design-led trends. I loved the work of Tom Pigeon, a shop that sells prints (above) and jewellery (below) in soft colours and geometric shapes.

There were so many tempting items to buy for the home. I loved the bright simple lighting from Room-9, and could happily see these lights in my home.

I could also quite happily see these bright fun necklaces by One We Made Earlier (below) around my neck! They make quite a statement.

Other, more quirky items for the home were these fabulously funky ceramics (below) by Sena Gu, a ceramicist based in South Korea.

On the same stand were the designs of Yoon Namm who creates gorgeous sushi-inspired pots.

We then ventured into the Cubitt House part of the show where furniture and lighting was on display.

I loved the dark green of the padded sofa above. And it's very comfortable too!

There's still a large influence from Mid Century Modern furniture and I loved the chairs by Morgan London above. They used the rich dark green colour way, but also used the coral pink colours that still seem so popular in home dec right now.

The side board and table combo (above) were beautifully designed and hark back to the Art Deco era of oppulence. I loved the ombre effect used on the sideboard.

The fun furniture above uses a fresh colour palette and retro-inspired designs in large, bold shapes.

Bright colours were still popular and I loved these fun stools.

Items were also interestingly presented and this display above was fab, using a ray of light feel to showcase each piece.

Design Junction finishes today so you still have time to get down there!
