This week we can all celebrate the joys of getting out and about once more, as lighting design studio Martin Huxford launches its first showroom and registration opens for London Design Week. There is also a new National Trust tile collection from Sarsen Stone Group
Sarsen Stone Group has a new tile collaboration with the National Trust. The range is made up of ten collections of classic and contemporary tiles for walls and floors and is inspired by designs and details found at National Trust locations. A percentage of sales from the collection will go towards the National Trust, Europe’s largest conservation charity.

Martin Huxford, the award winning British designer/maker of contemporary lighting, has opened its first showroom.
Martin says he has often been asked by interior designers if they can bring their clients to see his lights, so the decision was made to create a dedicated, welcoming space to showcase the designs.
He says, “Choosing between brass and bronze finishes, or exploring custom options is so much better done in person, where texture, materials and scale can be properly appreciated.”
The showroom is based alongside the Martin Huxford studio and workshop in the Sussex Downs.
Registration is now open for London Design Week 2021. The event is taking place between the 16 and 21 May at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour. The organisers reassure me that they have put various measures in place to ensure a safe visit and you will need to register in advance to attend.
This year’s event is a hybrid format so that as well as showroom appointments there is a programme of free online events including talks, master classes and business focussed webinars.
