Scottish furniture and textile companies to present a unique creative installation at Clerkenwell Design Week 2012
We were very excited to hear that ‘Made in Britain’ is to be a major theme at the Clerkenwell Design Week 2012. And as part of this annual celebration of contemporary British design, forty-five companies from across Scotland are set to showcase some of the best Scottish-made furniture and textiles.
Brought together by Textiles Scotland and the Scottish Furniture Makers Association (SFMA), there will be the chance to see some of the best products made North-of-the-Border from designers and manufacturers such as The Isle Mill, Anta, Begg Scotland, Scalpay Linen and textiles artist Jilli Blackwood, alongside hand-crafted furniture makers such as Method Furniture and Daniel Lacey. Plus, unveiled for the first time especially for Clerkenwell Design Week, will be bespoke collaborations between Scottish furniture makers and textiles brands, including Johnstons of Elgin, Harris Tweed, Clockhouse Furniture, Ralph Christie and Turnberry Rug Works.
The Clerkenwell Design Week is always well worth a visit for those interested in beautifully crafted, British-made products. The event is free to attend and will be taking place between 10am – 9pm on 22-24 May at various locations around Clerkenwell. The Scottish Furniture and Interiors Exhibition will be hosted in the House of Detention at stand number 17. To register for tickets visit clerkenwelldesignweek.com/register
