We're on the verge of London Design Week 2022. The season’s most anticipated event will take over the Design Centre at Chelsea Harbour from March 13th to 18th 2022 – and it's set to be their biggest celebration yet. 

In a similar way to previous years, the festival will celebrate creativity and fuel decorating ideas for the year ahead – but in many ways – this year's event will differ from its predecessors. 

The organizers have dibbed this year’s Design Week as their most ‘meaningful’ ever – due to its reflection of the desire for shared experiences that many people share (amid the pandemic). But you don’t need to be in London to take part.

In the spirit of widespread shared experiences, design enthusiasts from shores far beyond Chelsea Harbour can join in the celebration. The Design Week officially kickstarts with a global online launch on March 13th, which brings the best of London to an international audience. So, what can you expect from this year’s lineup?

This year, over 600 brands and 120 international showrooms will descend on the Design Centre – and the set interior design trends in the process. The outlook for 2022 is elegant, pretty, and upbeat – so you can expect poetic prints, playful pastels, and soft silhouettes that represent new beginnings. 

The festival pays homage to some of the most exciting designers across the continents. Standouts include accessories from Arteriors (opens in new tab) with US interior designer Celerie Kemble (opens in new tab) and sculptural furniture by Spanish artist-designer Jaime Hayon (opens in new tab) with Ceccotti Collezioni (opens in new tab).

Alongside its showrooms, London Design Week will run a curated program of events to inspire your new home ideas, including meet-the-designer sessions and artisan demonstrations – so you can discover more about the process behind your new favorite piece. 

The Inspiration Gallery will also showcase the best of spring’s design scene – with a series of stylish vignettes and specially commissioned places to drink and dine around like-minded design lovers. If you need us between March 13th to 18th 2022 – we’re officially occupied.
