Deirdre will be in conversation with Tom Faulkner and Interior Designer Maurizio Pellizzoni moderated by Interiors Journalist Barbara Chandler with the theme, ‘Love It or Hate It: Instagram for Interiors’

With Instagram changing the interiors landscape and three very differing perspectives it’s sure to make for an interesting debate!

The talk on 26th April will close the three-day event and takes place at Tom’s Lots Road Gallery.

The conversation will be followed by drinks and canapes but numbers are strictly limited and places will be on a first come first served basis. To RSVP contact elektra@tomfaulkner.co.uk

Introducing Chris – Trade Sales Manager

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.

Our Largest ever Hand-Knotted Commissions

We recently completed our largest ever bespoke hand-knotted carpet commissions, each measuring approx. 6.5 x 6m (over 38 square metres).

Both carpets were created for a private client for use in adjoining private offices by Deirdre who, inspired by the surroundings and detail in one of the upholstery fabrics, created a selection of concepts from which the two final designs were chosen.

Deirdre Dyson

Given the scale, Deirdre decided to make a dramatic statement with grading – creating a palette of 13 colours from muted cream to darkest brown for both designs and selecting an ox-blood red, also used in the upholstery, to highlight the ‘stitching’ and ‘branch’ motifs on the designs.

The finished carpets are stunning and a testament to the incredible attention to detail and craftsmanship of our Nepalese weavers and an absolute masterclass in grading, an astonishing feat on this scale.

Deirdre Dyson stages a one-off exhibition For London Design Festival 2016

Fine art interpreted through the brush and the loom

Deirdre Dyson

From Tuesday 20th – Saturday 24 September 2016, Deirdre Dyson will hold a one-off exhibition of her fine art at the Deirdre Dyson Gallery 554 Kings Road, London SW6 2DZ.

Lady Dyson will curate a small selection of her artwork to hang alongside her carpet designs, bringing to life the concept of Walking on Art – depicting, through realized pieces, how she interprets her artistic vision through both paint-brush and loom.

This unique event is being staged as part of the 2016 London Design Festival and we are proud to be the Chelsea Design Quarter LDF District’s Design Hub for the week, providing complementary wifi to visitors.

Deirdre Dyson says:

“My passion has always been to explore form and colour and this is a key part of my approach to carpet design.  I aim to create something that is more a work of art than simply a carpet.  I recently wrote a book, entitled “Walking on Art”, which talks about the processes and techniques that go into creating my carpets and rugs.  Through this exhibition, I hope to bring alive some of the content of the book – it’s very exciting.”

Visitors will be able to see paintings such as ‘Paper and Stone’ and ‘Pinched Vase and Grasses’, as well as other large-scale pieces of art.  Deirdre Dyson’s latest collections of contemporary carpets will also be on display throughout the four-storey Gallery, completely transformed last year by architect Timothy Hatton.  The roof terrace will be open for browsers to contemplate everything on display and relax a while before heading off to see the other design treasures our neighbours in the Chelsea Design Quarter have to offer.

Client-designed Carpet for a Country Hideaway

Client Design

Deirdre was recently commissioned to produce this client’s own design for a weekend cottage sitting room.

Client Design

The client produced a drawing and choose her own colours from our vast selection and the result is an excellent example of how successful this collaborative approach can be.

The geometric design has bold panels of greens juxtaposed with purples, with each panel bound in copper-toned silk.

Client Design

In situ the bold design is softened somewhat by the cosy but contemporary interior with accessories which perfectly harmonise with the chosen colours.

Edison’s Guide to Using Angles, Asymmetry & Geometrics

Many of Deirdre’s designs feature angular motifs, examples include this year’s PINNACLE, OPTIC & REFLECTIONS as well as classic designs such as BI-LINE and INTERLINK.

In the second part of his occassional series on elements of interior design, Company Manager Edison gives his tips on incorporating angles of every type into a scheme.

I love a punchy interior, something that ‘kicks’ and makes you think.

Adding angular, geometric and asymmetrical forms that work against more structured lines is a great way to introduce some ‘base’ into your space.

Concrete Table

With an ever-increasing trend to open up spaces, larger areas can often lack impact and dimension, particularly where large expanses of straight walls and ceilings dominate within the conventions of modern apartment living or the converted, traditional home.

The introduction of irregular forms, can also be used to dissect and zone spaces within smaller areas, making them appear larger. This happens as the eye is drawn to the fragmented areas of a space, rather than seeing one small area as a complete ‘whole’.

Kitchen

The compact kitchen (above) is a perfect example.

With a basic run of flat, regular cupboards and cabinets, the use of an asymmetrical counter/room divider and geometric tiles, breaks the monotony, zones areas and adds dimension, interest and depth.

Kitchen

Kitchen

The kitchen/living space designed by MCK (above) is another example of well thought out use of the angular, irregular form.

It divides the space with visual interest, allowing for a balance of movement, without becoming awkward.  The introduction of the rounded sofa in the background and the rounded backs of the bistro dining chairs, soften the overall effect and add warmth to the interior by way of colour.

This stunning staircase is another example of clever juxtapositioning.

Staircase

If sharp angled staircases and asymmetrical ceilings are not quite your thing or purely just impossible to achieve, then you can always introduce these elements by use of decorative accessories and furnishings, without having to move home or demolish any walls!

For example, these dining chairs and painted table top is just what’s needed to break the ‘square-ness’ of this open plan space.

Painted Table

Of course rugs are an easy way of adding angular forms, our PINNACLE and CRUMPLE carpets are two perfect examples.

Alternatively why not try introducing some decorative wallpaper to make a statement feature wall such as Angles by Erica Wakerly

On an even smaller scale, think Lights by James Dieter, as featured November 2015’s Elle Decoration page 109 or some black geometric inspired vases such as these, to add that delicate angle on a shelf or mantelpiece.’
