Art & Interiors 2017
A day devoted to the role of art in interiors, hosted House & Garden at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour
Autumn is a busy time for art-lovers with PAD London and Frieze firm fixtures on the international calendar. With its finger on the style pulse, Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour hosted an all-day event with House & Garden, focusing on how the worlds of art and design have never been more inter-connected.
Designers are working with an increasingly sophisticated client base who appreciate that art is vital to a dynamic interior; and many leading designers surround themselves with art, drawing inspiration from the pieces they live with and artworks they have seen around the world. The stellar line-up included international interior designers Veere Grenney, Francis Sultana and Carden Cunietti, as well as Frances Christie, head of modern and post-war British art at Sotheby’s, who all spoke passionately about the importance of supporting and living with art. ‘Art makes a difference,’ said Francis Sultana during his session. ‘It provokes our imagination and reflects our personalities’.
