Almost 400 visitors celebrated the London Design Festival with us yesterday!

The atmosphere was buzzing this year at One Day Designers Sale: Interior Products for the London Design Festival, with 35 designers involved! All of the displays looked wonderful and the audience seemed to have a great time. Everyone (including exhibitors, CC staff and our team of volunteers) put in a huge amount of effort so many thanks to you all. Check out images of the event below...

As usual, this effort was also reflected in the marketing of the event – we distributed almost 20,000 flyers, invited 16,000 craft-specific guests via the CC database and received fantastic press coverage (including: Time Out, Time Out online, Icon, Selvedge, Ceramic Review, From Britain with Love, Culture Label, Createabot, Craft & Design magazine, UK Handmade, London Design Festival website and printed guide, Crafts Council What’s On, IMAGE Interiors & Living, Visit London, Creative Clerkenwell, All in London, local press and various online listings/blogs). This resulted in 370 visitors throughout the afternoon; a statistic to be celebrated! 

Dressing windows not walls...

The striking window display at yesterday's One Day Designers Sale: Interior Products for the London Design Festival was a definite hit, successfully enticing visitors! Thank you to Annette from ATA Design for installing her gorgeous wallpapers. Sarah Bonallo's picket fence chair looked great too!
