We are extremely excited to reveal all nine new designs in Deirdre’s collection for 2016 Walking on Art.
The collection has been called after Deirdre’s book of the same name detailing her evolution from fine artist to carpet designer, the design process itself and also catalogues all her carpet designs, together with a substantial number of background sketches and drawings, from the past fifteen years.
All the new designs are hand-knotted in wool and silk and to a greater or lesser extent include grading which requires not only Deirdre’s singular talent for colour selection in the design, but also the hugely skilled craftsmanship of our artisan weavers in Nepal.
See us on Stand G34, Hall 7 from Thursday 22nd to Tuesday 26th January, Maison et Objet Parc des Expositions, Villepinte, Paris.
Our second year at May Design Series was an exciting three day event held at the London Excel.
We were there showcasing our 2014 collection, ‘Designs from the Seashore’, including the increasing popular design, Sea Wash. Deirdre also designed a special fitted carpet inspired by ‘falling sticks’, which was all manufactured here in the UK.
We did not have to go far to find some fantastic and innovative designs from the likes of Sharon Marston and Tom Raffield. It was also exciting to view a selection from the AIMMP group in Portugal at stand I22, where a table with a spinning levitating bowl was a highlight for us, which can be seen below.
Again thank you to all who came to visit our stand, it was lovely to meet you!
Alice & Deirdre Dyson Team
We’re really looking forward to exhibiting at May Design Series again this year.
Deirdre has designed the stand which will feature an original hand-tufted design as well as showcase this year’s Designs from the Seashore collection. It promises to be as impressive as last year’s (pictured above)
Come and visit us on stand N46 in the DX area at Excel, London from 18th – 20th May.
We are proud to be part of Chelsea Design Quarter’s (CDQ) and delighted that the first CDQ Summer Street Party on Wednesday 4th June coincides with our relocation to the new Deirdre Dyson temporary showroom at 602 King Road (we’ll be there for 18 months or so while our showroom at 544 receives a hugely exciting refurbishment.)
All participating showrooms will be open late (until 9pm) and the hub of the party runs from the ‘bridge to the bend’ stretch of the Kings Road.
Spend a relaxed summer evening enjoying street food, complimentary drinks and entertainment as well as browsing our showroom, and those of our neighbouring CDQ members, in this design hot spot.
The party is a unique opportunity to meet Deirdre and the team here, view this year’s Designs from the Seashore collection (including the much-admired SEA WASH, which features our innovative colour grading technique) and receive a copy of Deirdre’s exclusive colouring book featuring some favourite designs with a chocolate treat (limited stock).
CDQ is an interiors Mecca, with more than 50 showrooms covering rugs and lighting, fabrics and furniture, kitchens and bathrooms, antiques and collectibles, prints and paintings and bespoke galore. Classic and traditional sit cheek by jowl with contemporary and modern – come and see what this unique design zone has to offer!
