If you are planning on visiting some Interior Design exhibitions in the UK this year, you may find this list I have compiled useful, with dates, locations, links to websites and a little information on the offering. London is a melting pot of diversity and culture and this makes for, in my opinion the most exciting and innovative design in the world!

A design pool of talent, rich with interwoven cultures and styles, promises an exciting showcase of products to hit London, the design capital of Europe in 2015. New technologies and limitless imagination combine to produce designs which inspire, ignite and launch trends.

The most exciting exhibition in the design calendar is the New Designers exhibition which runs from the end of June to the beginning of July and presents design graduates from across the UK to the market. The young designers have an energy which cannot be compared to any other exhibition, as many students launch their careers. New Designers 2015 will undoubtedbly be the show of the year and is definitely worth a visit. Other favourites include Tent London, Design Junction, Decorex International, Chelsea Harbour and 100% Design. London Design Fesitval and Clerkenwell Design week provide a gateway for the creative community to absorb, network and showcase some of the most exciting projects and designs in the world.

Have a great year design lovers! I hope to see you at some of these events! Follow me on @roomforapony for live updates.

I will be covering some of the following events over the year. If you are a designer, please feel free to send me press information to roomforapony@gmail.com (I’m sorry but I am unable to respond to all enquiries due to the volume I receive)
