LDF: Tent and Origin with Blogtour 2011

Having been jinxed with trains the last couple of days I have missed some of the London Design Festival extravaganza, which is a real shame as there were some great things I planned to attend.  On Friday however I tagged along with the fabulous bloggers on blogtour2011 and visited Tent London and Origin 2011. Below are five of my favourites finds from Tent and Origin

Abigail Borg beautiful wallpaper and fabric that is made, printed and manufactured in Britain

Anthony Hartley’s brightly coloured furniture with movement and curvaceous form. Plus a touch of sweet shop charm

Mini Moderns wonderfully charming print collection that includes wallpaper and home accessories  

Zoe Murphy revitalizing/up-cycling mid century furniture and giving it a new lease of life 

Niamh Barry Small artisan lighting designer using glass, steel and bronze

Origin continues to run till Wednesday 28th September, so get yourself over to Old Spitalfields Market and see some of the beautiful British craft.

I also want to say a big thank you to Veronika and Tim at Modenus for organizing blogtour2011 and generally being all round good eggs.

    Absolutely gorgeous aren't they? I'd love for her to customise a sideboard or a bedside tables for my own home. Too yummy
