Upon Leipzig’s lawns, leaf-strewn,

Where lately each fair avenue

Wrought shade for summer noon

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or plagued with another bout of tonsillitis!), you will know that the London Design Festival started last week and is now in full swing. Everyone remotely interested in design has caught the bug and the city is abuzz with creativity and excitement from Chelsea to Brompton, Kensington and Notting Hill to Mayfair and Shoreditch, and so many other pockets within the capital as far as Syon Park where Decorex returns after so many years.  
Come and see us at the Redloh House Fabrics Stand 23!

A-Gent of Style will be showing you soon some of his highlights after scouring the myriads of fairs, exhibitions, events, talks and parties (of course). Stay tuned!
