It was great to be back at designjunction during the London Design Festival for our third year - this time in it's new home at the recently revamped King's Cross.
Despite being busy on our stand, this year I had some help so managed to find time to see a few other things during the festival - here's what caught my eye:
Exhibiting as part of the 'This is India' stand at The London Design Fair (whose exhibition design was created by the lovely and talented Kangan Arora), this fabric really caught my eye! Being a huge lover of India and all the incredible textiles it offers, I was immediately drawn to this print and exciting project whereby designers have created patterns inspired by the 'stories ranging from our Indian Freedom-Fighters to Bollywood’s Heroes, from our dabbawallas in the day to the creatures of the night'.

Highlights for me were from these two brilliant designer/makers - Jode Pankhurst and Hilary Grant...

I was lucky enough to have my stand opposite a company that design and make the most beautifully simple yet stunning watches and treated myself to this:

Finally, one of the other stands that always catches my eye at designjunction is by Kyla McCallum otherwise known as Foldability. Her paper folding is amazing...
