Northern Design Festival Opening Night

Northern Design Festival 2015 kicked off last night with a fab opening preview and press event for the exhibition – all taking place in the impressive Assembly House, Newcastle. Here’s a few snaps from my evening there…

Design Event’s Northern Design Festival is now open to the public until Sunday 25th October 15, so if you’re in the North East (or overdue a trip there) do check it out.

For full details of what’s on please check out the online brochure. There really is lots of wonderful design to see from us northern designers – so don’t just take my word for it!

The Malings Show Home

I feel very privileged to be among a talented group of northern designers, whose homeware was selected to furnish The Malings Show Home in Newcastle.

The Malings is a new development of eco-friendly homes in the Ouseburn Valley area of the city. The Show Home is now open for public viewing every weekend, so you can visualise living in the heart of The Malings community. It looks like a pretty good way of life to me, if the photos are anything to go by!

If you’d like to learn a little more about the development please visit The Malings website and browse their online gallery… See how many Annabel Perrin items you can spot!

 

 

Fabulous Design in the North

On Saturday I exhibited my homewares at Home Is In The North, a brand new interiors pop up event run by The Social Butterfly. It was a delight to see hundreds of visitors piling into the impressive Halle St Peters venue, in Ancoats, Manchester, for a day of design inspiration and shopping!

It’s always a joy to attend these events, and the atmosphere at Home Is In The North is one of the best I’ve experienced. Visitors were in high spirits and full of praise about the range of products on show by each indie business/designer. There was also a great camaraderie between the exhibitors, particularly as many of us had met up before the event for the pop-up photo shoot around the city.

If you were unable to attend the event here’s a little recap of what the day had in store.

Thanks go to Garry Lomas for his fabulous photography of the day.

Don’t miss the next Home Is In The North, which has already been scheduled for Saturday 15th November, at the same venue. Get it in the diary quick!!!
