September is always one of the busiest months in the design diary. Tomorrow marks the beginning of London Design Festival and every night there is something happening.
At the beginning of the week we went to Christies South Kensington to preview the ‘Core One, Style and Spirit’ sale. It was great to see all my fellow traders from the Core One days where Jamb had its first showroom. After some delicious wine and canapés we listened to Rita Konig’ s eloquent and heartfelt talk lamenting the loss of Core One. In her most natural way she spoke about buying from Core One and how you could make a house a home buying antiques from the cavernous space beneath the gasworks. I particularly loved her describing the necessity for silver spoons to serve mash potatoes as she chose certain pieces that she coveted in the catalogue.
