Reflecting on Focus 2021 – Sustainable Design

There was a palpable buzz at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour for Focus 2021. Everyone was clearly delighted to come back together and see everything the showrooms had to offer. We work in an industry where look and touch are incredibly important and sourcing through a computer screen is just not the same.

Autumn Colours

Autumn colours took centre stage throughout the Design Centre and are beautifully reflected in the warm tones of our new hand-woven range, Kheri. Come and see the collection in Jacaranda’s new look showroom.

Sustainability in Design

We were delighted to host a talk on ‘Sustainability in Design’ with renowned interior designer Susan White, of Iggi & Phoenix Interior Design and Grant Pierrus, author of award-winning blog ’The Interior Style Hunter’.

Susan succinctly summed up sustainability in 3 key words ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ and shared some fantastic tips for designers on how to go about sourcing responsibly.

Grant and Susan agreed that the key to specifying sustainably is education and really questioning brands and manufacturers on their sustainable policies. Only with this knowledge can designers sell the benefits to their clients.
