Shopping for Non Essentials – Arts & Crafts after Lockdown

by | Aug 8, 2021

Pure joy as we can now shop and browse the non-essentials! How we’ve missed the fairs, exhibitions and private views: the furniture, the sculptures and paintings, the ceramic pots and all the things that make a home that little bit more special.

So long was lockdown in the UK that we almost missed the first carfts fair this year in the brilliant Chelsea Design Centre at Imperial Wharf – London’s chic interiors mecca on the River Thames.

Apart from stunning porcelain, clay and canvas pieces, the fair featured a series of talks and small receptions…an alladinøs cave for conoisseurs and investors, as well as galleriestas looking for the next big things or talent to feature.

Here are some of our favourite pieces from the fair – worth keeping taps on exhibitions att the Design Centre as itøs one of the best places to gather home decor inspiration. They include pieces (in order of appearance) such as Wildflowers porcelain wall sculpture by Valeria Nascimento, Kate Brett, whose Untitled mini ceramic figurines in box shelves are repped by the Cube Gallery and Lucas Ferreira, whose Grey Factions ceramic pieces caught our eyes.

And not least Zoe Wilsonøs stone carving as featured in our main image at the top:
