Glass Door offers shelter, advice and support to those affected by homelessness.  They are open to all, space permitting, and do not require guests to fill in long complicated forms to gain access to their services.  They are an independent charity and avoid seeking funding which would restrict their open access policy.

As you can imagine their fundraising has been seriously impacted by the pandemic.  Chelsea Design Quarter will be passing on 100% of proceeds from the raffle and we really hope you will help us to support Glass Door by entering our raffle.

Chelsea Design Quarter interviewed Glass Door CEO, Lucy Abraham about the challenges they have faced in 2020 and how they have adapted to restrictions and demands.  You can read the interview here.

Raffle Tickets are £5 each.  They are being sold via Just Giving: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/chelsea-design-quarter

PLEASE NOTE: It is essential entrants follow the instructions on the Just Giving page and forward their confirmation e-mail to chelseadesignquarter@gmail.com
The draw will take place live via Zoom at the George Smith showroom on 26th November.

SKYSCAPE WINS FOR INNOVATION!

We are thrilled to announce that Deirdre’s epic SKYSCAPE rug design has won the Innovation Award at the annual Campaign for Wool British Wool Wool Carpet and Rug Awards at The Flooring Show!

SKYSCAPE has been one of the most popular designs in this year’s collection and one Deirdre is really proud of!

The design uses a palette of 20 colours in wool, silk and a wool silk mix to cleverly recreate a sky at sunset.

The rug is a testament to Deirdre’s unparalleled eye for colour and the complex colour grading on this hand knotted carpet (measuring 5M x 2.35M) showcases the incredible skill of our Nepalese weavers.

Congratulations to all other winners and Finalists! Full details of other winners here
