    If you’re after design inspiration, London Design Week 2018 is where world-leading creatives and amateur design lovers in equal measure go to be inspired.

    London Design Week 2018 boasts hundreds of producers, showrooms and immersive design experiences. It’s the go-to for the inspiration hungry – whether you work in the industry or not. Visitors get, in Design Week’s words, “the inside track on creative thinking”.

    120 exhibitors and 600 international brands make cutting-edge design accessible. Pop-up experiences go back-to-back with interactive installations and world exclusive previews of the latest technologies, materials and trends from the world of design.

    Talks, demonstrations and workshops

    Eminent designers including Martin Brudnizki, Martin Hulbert, Jay Grierson, Lord Snowdon, Sophie Ashby, Hubert Zandberg, Sir Peter Osborne, Susie Atkinson, Peter Mikic, Linda Boronkay, Christopher Jenner, Jo leGleud, Afroditi Krassa, Simon Mitchell of Sybarite, architects Fiona McLean and Mike Stiff and Marianne Cotterill will participate in talks and discussions. Meet the Designer sessions and Designer Close Ups will reveal new projects and insider tips from the best in the business in an intimate exchange.

    Original collaborations between designers and tastemakers

    Like Christmas windows, but in March, designers and artists are collaborating to create distinct art installations, to be displayed throughout the various rooms. Figureheads from the worlds of art, architecture, decoration, design and fashion will work together to make one-off creations full of “skill, wit and nerve”.

    Design trends made couture for the home

    A series of interactive events mean guests can learn how to make statement items bespoke for their own homes. Jacaranda Carpets, Siberian Floors, Houlès, Artisans of Devizes’ Q&A sessions, Jacaranda Carpets, Summit Furniture and Topfloor by Esti will all host practical advice sessions on everything from digital marketing of your own brand blog, to ways to enhance fixtures, fittings and furnishings to fit your own needs.

    London Design Week 2018 runs 4 – 9 March, with trade preview running until 6th and then public entry thereafter | Register online for complimentary tickets
