Furniture Choice

Grand Designs Live is a unique opportunity to see exciting new products never seen before as well as being a hub for the latest trends for the home. Always keen to be inspired we went along to the event to see the latest clever creations to emerge from the world of interiors.

We spotted some brilliant ideas this year and decided to share them! Have a look at what we saw at this year’s event at Birmingham’s NEC…

 

Fun With Fridges

From fridges shaped like cars and telephone boxes to cute pastels and bright colours, this year there was plenty of imagination in the kitchen!

On The Wall

Glass wall art had a huge presence at this year’s Grand Designs Live as well as customisable wallpaper. We also spotted some gorgeous pots with blue and white patterns, a trend that’s definitely on its way in.

Light Up The Room

Lighting always makes a big impact at any design show and this year was no exception! From abstract shapes and colours to delicate bubbles there was always something intriguing overhead.

Furniture With A Difference

There were plenty of unusual pieces at the show and a lot of inspiration for the items seemed to have come from nature, either with a rustic wood feel or an animal design. But not all, such as the blue dining chair drawing inspiration from retro American diners, or the table with legs made of books!
