For the love of design

London oozes talent - especially this week with so many design events across the capital.

Today I'm going to sample a few:

Liberty is my favorite shop in the whole wide world. Such a happy marriage between classical beauty and cutting edge design. Exhibition Trash Luxe, on at the moment, is a response to consumerism and today’s disposable culture. Some wonderful designers include: Stuart Haygarth and Paul Cocksedge. I must admit to owning a Paul Cocksedge light shade (pictured above). It lives in my lounge, illuminating in weird shapes around the room. Made from polystyrene cups, it reminds me of a brain.

Do Masters at Do Shop is another exhibition with so many quirky things:

And my old haunt, Contemporary Applied Arts on Percy Street, where I spent many a lunchtime perusing the ever-changing exhibitions.

Reporting back tomorrow....
