Come and see Swarm Design England on stand i9d.
We are delighted to officially announce that we will be exhibiting at HOME LONDON 2015, on stand i9d. As well as being the first major trade focused event we have exhibited at, we are also launching a new collection of fabrics, soft furnishings and lampshades.
The new collection takes inspiration from crystal and mineral growths, as well as tropical plant life. There are three distinct colour-ways to target different leading current trends in colour, each way changing the look so dramatically that the designs appears to change.
Come along for the 13th-15th of September to see the show. We’re very excited about the event and for the launch of our new range, and it would be wonderful if you could join us.
