Deirdre recently welcomed clients and friends of the company to celebrate this year’s HORIZONS carpet collection.
Guests were treated to spectacular canapes and mocktails by Bubblefood together with champagne and exclusive wines from the Dyson vineyard, whilst flower arrangements created by Amie Bone and inspired by the collection decorated the gallery.
We’re delighted Chris has joined the team here at Deirdre Dyson heading up Trade Sales.
Chris has thrived on creating positive working relationships with both clients and colleagues his entire career – whether managing large enterprises in the high street or latterly smaller, high-end interiors brands in the Chelsea Design Quarter.
Chris not only brings a background in interior and product design but is an award-winning stylist of luxury events and exhibitions, this eye for design coupled with a natural charm and wit makes him the ideal representative for Deirdre Dyson in the UK and beyond.
We had a few questions for Chris:
You’ve been here just over a month Chris, how have you found it?
Settling in nicely and thoroughly enjoying my new position. Apart from the team making me very welcome, the gallery is a place that feels very special. It displays the artwork with maximum effect and easy to view thanks to the sliding walls system. I have also been amazed at the choice of colours available (over 5000). Offering such a bespoke service allows clients to match very specific colours when required.
From the choice of Deirdre Dyson designs, is there a particular favourite that you have and if so, why?
The more I look at Deirdre’s designs, the more I appreciate them but SKYSCAPE from our new Horizons Collection is a definite favourite. The soft, gentle shapes and subtly graded colour palette, creates a wonderful dreamlike appeal.
As a member of CDQ, is there a particular company or showroom within the vicinity that you like or would recommend to others?
I have been a fan of our neighbouring showroom, Haute Deco long before I was working in CDQ. They have an outstanding collection of unusual and beautiful drawer and door hardware. Their designs can transform virtually any piece of furniture or door into a very special piece.
For this year’s London Design Festival, the Chelsea Design Quarter Design District has selected the theme ELEMENTS from which Deirdre has chosen WIND as the inspiration for a bespoke runner to be displayed during the event (16th – 24th) and until the end of September.
Architect of our 554 Kings Road gallery, Timothy Hatton, has loaned some of the wonderful 3D printed leaves produced for his Human Nature installation at Aqua Shard last December which will be displayed with the WINDSWEPT runner and has kindly donated a display box of five 3D-printed leaves for us to give away to one lucky winner.
To enter the competition simply follow us on Instagram@DeirdreDysonLLP, upload a picture that encompasses WINDSWEPT, tag us in the image and use #WINDSWEPT and #LDF17. The competition will run during the festival period and we’ll post the winning image across social media.
These 3D leaves were sold to raise funds for Sir David Attenborough’s Fauna & Flora International charity and can still be purchased here to support this worthwhile cause.
In his occasional interiors series Edison creates mood boards based on two carpets reduced in our Summer Sale.
Now that we’re into our sale period I’ve just taken a look at two of the latest designs that have been added to our ex display sale list. I wonder who will buy these gorgeous pieces of art for the floor?
Being bang on trend and both having a timeless appeal, here are two mood boards which take inspiration from the DAWN and FOREST MOSAIC designs.
Mood boards are great tools to help co-ordinate a look, piece together elements of a design or simply help you focus on a colour, theme or mood.
DAWN MOOD BOARD
“FROM CHARTREUSE TO MUSTARD, BOTH COLOURS WORK WELL AGAINST SHADES OF GREY”
FOREST MOSAIC BOARD
“WITH ELEMENTS OF ART DECO, THINK STRUCTURED GREEN FORMS WITH A TOUCH OF LUXURY”.
