To celebrate London Design Festival, award-winning interior designer Alidad (pictured above) will be creating schemes for two of our windows – one either side of the main entrance on the King’s Road. There will be a luxe and layered artist’s studio with bold black and gold, styled with bookcases and architectural pieces, while the other will demonstrate a much fresher and younger look featuring 20th Century pieces. The windows will launch on 10th September.

Gabby Deeming, Decoration Director at House & Garden, will be in conversation with Alidad on Monday 21st September at 3pm discussing his inspiration for the schemes and working with antiques in the modern home. There will be the opportunity for Q&A with Alidad and Gabby Deeming after the talk.
