When we signed up for 100% Design with only weeks to prepare, we decided to move full steam ahead with our new design which our Design Director, Nick Lewis had been working on.
Our love for London Design Festival We are delighted to have a stand at 100% Design where we can show a wider range of designs than we did at Clerkenwell Design Week.
We might still be scraping the ice from our windscreens in the morning, but springtime really is just around the corner. There are so many vibrant and intense fabrics and palettes to look forward to this spring/summer, and last month’s event at Mason & Objet, one of France’s largest international design fairs, showcased just some of the colours and materials that will be taking over the world this year.
In order to really get to know a long-standing business, you have to have a little dig around in the archives and do your homework on its origins, founders, ethos and heritage. Lucky in this case then, I didn’t have to search too far. Roger Lewis himself is part of my extended family – and the founder of the business, now run by the second generation that’s ensuring it’s not only surviving but thriving today. So, where did it all begin?
To run a company that feels like one big happy family – it’s the Holy Grail for a lot of business owners, right? A workplace that adopts a family approach to business means they’re emphasising trust and values – a culture that’s transparent, encourages opinions and celebrates opportunities. Who wouldn’t want to work in a place like that?!
In our Instagram posts we talk about ‘aiming for iconic’. But iconic is a really big word. Possibly one of those overused words that devalues the real meaning. Are we just using big words for the sake of marketing?! It doesn’t sit very well with our passion for integrity.
