I love visiting design shows; there’s always a really positive buzz, interesting people to meet and exciting new products to discover. Top Drawer is my favourite trade show as it’s always exciting to see the products and trends that will end up in the shops next season.

There are two ways to approach such a huge show (held at Olympia). One is to meticulously plan your route and make a list of everything that you want to see. The other is to just start walking and see what treats you discover along the way. I opted for the latter and wasn’t disappointed, as around the first corner I stumbled across the designer Celia Birtwell having a cup of tea. A bit of research uncovered that she was there to launch her new range of homewares, which should hit the shelves in October. But if you can’t wait until then, we’ve brought you a sneak peek (we’re so good to you.)

There were plenty of other new designs on display too, Jan Constantine was exhibiting ever expanding collection of patriotic Union Jack themed home accessories and there were lots of young designers displaying quirky and original textiles, ceramics and accessories. With seminars and talks by design gurus such as Kelly Hoppen and Oliver Heath this years show was definitely one to watch.
