Marylebone Interiors Day
25th May 2013
With a range of services that could fill the glossiest of interiors magazines, a celebration of Marylebone’s interior design offering is long overdue—so it is with no small excitement that we greet the arrival of the Village’s inaugural Interiors Day in May. Comprising of a wealth of workshops, talks, free consultations and other activities, together with an array of exclusive offers, the event will see six of the area’s interiors retailers—Skandium, The Conran Shop, Designer’s Guild, Farrow & Ball, Fired Earth and Grange—join forces in a collaborative effort to put Marylebone interior design offering firmly on the map.
With events running all day and well into the evening, this is the perfect opportunity to pick up hints for your home—whether you’re a hardened design enthusiast, a novice in need of handholding, or simply curious. The activities are free, and once you’re here you won’t have to travel much more than a few hundred meters between each activity.
At Skandium we have invited the amazing craftswomen behind the beautiful Fritz Hansen Wicker PK22 chairs, Lene, to set up her weaving workshop in-store. While our knowledgeable staff are always keen to share the story behind a particular item, there’s nothing like seeing a piece being crafted first-hand.
Weaving workshops will run: 12pm-1pm 2pm-3pm 4pm-5pm

In addition to this we will also be offering interior design consultations throughout the day. If you visit us with an image of the room you want to breathe new life into, you will be advised on creative ways to transform your space with a few key pieces, which the Skandium design team will present on your very own mood board. Simply send your image via e-mail or bring it in on a USB stick and let us do the work. In order to guarantee a slot for your interior design inspiration, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Other highlights of Marylebone Interiors Day include a demonstration of My Grange, an innovative software programme that enables you to personalise over bubbly and Aga-cooked nibbles at Fired Earth; an inspirational talk at Farrow & Ball showing you how to transform your home with colour; a series of exclusive spring styling workshops at The Conran Shop, hosted by Gabby Deeming of House & Garden magazine; and the chance to enjoy a cappuccino and a chat with a consultant at Designers Guild.
Marylebone Interiors Day runs throughout the day on 25th May. Visit the Marylebone Journal for more details and updates.
