I felt really inspired walking around all of the showrooms and it made me more determined to work hard and get to where I want to be, maybe one day having my own show room there.
I really liked the work in Zoffany Sanderson and the quirky little room displays that they had around the room. I thought this was a really nice way of showing their work rather than just having all the fabric and wallpaper samples flat in books or hung up.
I've looked at their work before in projects that I did at college and always found great inspiration from it but it was really nice to see it in the show room, with complete collections set out neatly and professionally.
The Mulberry Home showroom also had cute room displays showing their work, which all looked cosy and comfortable.
The designs used quite rich fabrics and fairly neutral colour palettes which I thought added to the idea of them being expensive and appealing but they had hints of bright colours in areas which was attractive and brought them to life a little bit more.
I loved the embroidery that I saw by Mulberry, it was all so detailed and intricate.
I liked the variety in the designs using both literal and stylized motifs in their patterns too.
Cole & Son's showroom seemed to focus mainly on the work that they have produced in collaboration with Vivienne Westwood which is very exciting!
I have always been a fan of their work so to have them working together can only mean great things, and from the few designs that I saw it looks really good!
