Celebrate Clerkenwell Design Week 2015 with Showroom Partners Brintons

9th April 2015

Brintons will be at the centre of the creative hub during Clerkenwell Design Week, where it will be showcasing a range of new designs as well as hosting a range of talks at the London Design Centre.

Brintons can now reveal its exciting schedule for the week, which is not one to be missed, and it is inviting design savvy visitors to visit them at its showroom on the 19th to 21st May.

19th May – 12pm - Designing for Woven Axminster Carpets - RIBA Accredited CPD Presentation

Visitors can explore the key aspects of designing for Axminster carpet production at the RIBA Accredited CPD Presentation, which will feature everything from the initial brief through the design process to installation, designing for Electronic Jacquard and how this can be used to produce complex multi-part, large-scale floorscapes in a variety of interiors. The history of Axminster and advances in technology will also be explored.

The talk will display how Brintons are continuing to challenge conventional design rules and promote a new way of thinking about how carpet is used in an interior space.

20th May – 12pm - “The Bespoke Interior” with the 2 Lovely Gays

Interior designers the 2 Lovely Gays discuss bespoke interiors as an expression of who you are and how it can be a place for growth and happiness. The talk will focus on how to give people confidence by bridging the gap between the consumer and the interiors industry through collaborating with Brintons, and giving a platform for rising talents to create spaces that truly inspire.

A question and answer session will follow with interiors stylist and editor Emilio Pimentel-Reid, placing a spotlight on design with the 2 Lovely Gays, discussing all that is current in the interiors and design world today. There will also be the opportunity for audience members to ask questions and be part of the discussion. 

21st May – 6.30pm - Exploring the archives with Talib Choudhry and Yvonne Smith

Talib Choudhry, interiors editor of the Telegraph Magazine, talks to Brintons' archivist Yvonne Smith about the relevance of historic archives in design, and how historical research helps to build fresh, new collections with layers of meaning and narrative. Following the talk on the 21st May at 6.30pm will be a drinks reception for a chance to unwind after the event.

Come and join Brintons at the heart of the UK’s design industry and see how we are continuing to challenge conventional design rules and promote a new way of thinking about how carpet is used in an interior space.
