Just over a month to go people and the CDW Presents are getting announced. Always fun and usually educational in some way, the Presents part of the show always brings to life the EC1 streets. For the second year in a row, Hakwood is participating in Clerkenwell Design Week, this time, sponsoring Double Vision, a 4m high structural installation of recursive patterns, nestled within the historic Clerkenwell Close.
On 15 March the Saatchi Gallery will open Exit from Aden, an exhibition of new works by the artist ALO, in the Prints & Originals Gallery.

We are big fans of Flock on Despoke and are hugely excited to hear that their iconic Northmore design is now being made into a rug.
Sometimes it’s comforting to go for the traditional and British brand Galerie, have got that covered (forgive the pun) with their new wallpaper collection Jardin Chic.
The designs are simple, vintage and pleasing to the eye. They would work perfectly as a feature wall in a bedroom, or if you are lucky enough to have a large space, could easily go across all walls.
The wallpaper has a very traditional yet up to date feel to it with the patterns not seeming over-crowded, clustered and fussy as many older styles tend to do. The colours are rich and well-matched.
The new range is really reasonably priced too with rolls starting at £24.95 for a 10 metre roll- great price for a quick update!

“Our method embodies years of research in the various disciplines in paper marbling, which have spanned the globe. The arts of Suminagashi and Ebru, emanating from Japan and Turkey centuries ago are both evident in our inaugural collection. However, it is our expansion of these practices that makes Calico Wallpapers truly unique,” said Nick. Continue Reading…
