Arlo and Jacob Autumn ranges

There’s a chill in the air, it’s harder to get up in the morning and Starbucks have launched their Pumpkin flavour coffees. Autumn is most definitely here. When you’ve finished raking leaves and accidentally setting the next door neighbour fence on fire in a vain attempt at a bonfire, head indoors and curl up on one of these bad boys from furniture band Arlo and Jacob.

100% Design draws to a close


As 100% Design enters its final hour, it has been an incredible show full of exciting features and stimulating discussions. Innovative products have been launched for the first time to the UK market, and traders have forged important contacts and extended networks. Interior designers have been inspired and bloggers have enjoyed spreading the word about everything going on. Hearing from our incredible headliners was of course a highlight, as was experiencing the features through the lofty Olympia, responding to the lovely late September sunshine.



100% Design hosted a series of very topical talks on Brexit, one particularly passionate talk was chaired by Show Director Will Knight and featured a stellar panel consisting of Louise Jury of the Creative Industries Federation,Marcus Fairs, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Dezeen, Ben Evans, Director of the London Design Festival and designer Paul Priestman, Chairman of PriestmanGoode. Dezeen recently released their Brexit Design Manifesto which has been gaining momentum.



We look forward to next year’s edition of 100% Design which will return to Olympia London 20-23 September 2017.

Written by guest editor Bethany Marett on-site at 100% Design.

Mauro Lipparini for Casa International

We love a good chair and so do Casa International. They’ve commissioned new seating pieces  by Italian architect/designer Mauro Lipparini to add to his already strong collection.

casa international


The subtle colour and the 1950’s influence of the Agordo, made from Italian leather, would suit a range of interiors, but we think is such a stand alone beauty, that you could have one as a statement piece. We feel it’s expensive just by looking at it, so one is probably all we could get anyway.



The Cassola chair has a unique look that derives from a metal understructure, linking backrest and seat. The framework is covered in a soft grey fabric that would suit a spread in Elle Decoration.

We are particularly enamoured by the Asolo chair, we think it’s something to do with how perfect the legs are and the simplicity of the leather.

Fun Food

Black+Blum are pretty good at having fun with the more mundane products we all have around the household and this time they’ve turned their hand to the lunchbox. Home of squashed sandwiches, leaks and a weird smell that never really goes away however many times you wash it.

New Mylo chair from JDD

It’s not often that a chair probably designed for workspace-environments catches our eye, but we really do like the shape and the fabric of the new Mylo range by JDD.

mylo JDD

Designed and handcrafted in Birmingham, UK, the pieces come in a range of fabric options that would suit any office breakout area or indeed within a less formal situ, round a dining room table at home. The legs come in 6 different colours that would brighten up any room.

The foodie hotspot, Zetter Townhouse in Clerkenwell has the chairs on show at the moment in their meeting rooms in a muted palette that suits their interior design perfectly, so make sure to pop by and see them.

British Airways i360 lighting switched on

On the 4th August Brighton was lit up just a little bit more when  the ‘breathing’ lighting on British Airways i360 was switched on for the first time. The name might be somewhat cumbersome, but the structure is far from messy.
