Fresh, new & British…rising wallpaper, furniture, textile and glass maker design stars EXCLUSIVELY AT urban living interiors for London Design Festival 2014

We are very excited to have discovered and to be exclusively showcasing five up and coming British furniture, fabric, textiles and glass designers at urban living interiors during the London Design Festival 2014.
We have carefully curated a collection of work from recent young graduates whose work will be on display throughout the London Design Festival at our recently opened Great Portland Street showroom and studio.
Designers on show at urban living interiors:
Kit Miles; who graduated four years ago has quickly established himself as one of Britain’s rising design stars.
He has made a huge impact on the design world with his mesmerising and sometimes surreal luxury textiles, wallpapers and ceramics. Specially commissioned Kit Miles Emperor Damask wallpaper (as seen above) in an exclusive colour way will cover one huge wall in our showroom and scatter cushions will be made up in his fascinating “Birds in Chains” fabric. We will also have a beautiful new club chair covered in his “Diagonal” fabric.
Thomas Jarrold; we are so excited to have discovered this absolutely brilliant furniture maker. He only graduated last year yet his talent and skill belies his young years. He creates exquisite pieces of traditionally designed craftsmanship with a modern twist, with extraordinary attention to detail His bold use of different woods and quirky use of red lacquer make his work highly desirable and instant modern classics.
Charlotte Wilkinson; graduated in July 2014 with a first class honours degree in glass design from DMU. Charlotte’s work is fresh and unusual. The pieces we are featuring during the festival tell a fascinating story, inspired by an MRI scan of her Dad, each piece is her interpretation of the cells in the body and how she saw them coming together. Beautiful colours and non-symmetrical shapes, beautiful to look at whether viewed alone or when grouped together.
Archie the Source: Adam graduated as a couple of years ago and has since developed his own unique furniture style. His strong, bold designs are inspired by Britain’s industrial past and are real statement pieces. Individually created his work and combines fabricated steel, wood and glass creating a unique aesthetic and like nothing we’ve seen before.
Anna Gravelle is a newly graduated textile designer and will be showcasing her innovative and unique textiles during the Festival. Anna uses tufting and printed patterns in radically different fabrics and yarns and her pieces are realised in cool, architectural greys and vivid colours. At the LDF we will feature her yellow and grey cubes with matching cushison.
urban living interiors is also launching an exciting new capsule collection, urban living @ home, its own brand furniture – designed and made in Britain, including a dressing table, sofa and drinks cabinet.
