Design Centre Stories

Home For Christmas

Capturing the magic of Christmas in a stylish, contemporary way while staying true to the traditions of the season, this year’s installations are some of the most inventive ever seen at Design Centre, Chelsea
Harbour. Thinking about interior decoration from a different perspective, four house vignettes are the perfect reminder of Christmas at home. Evocative windows with an inviting glow offer glimpses of different cosy settings within.

Many showrooms lent products to create the scenes, from Edelman Leather’s shaggy heritage-breed sheepskins to Zoffany’s glowing ‘Lustre Gold Tile’ wallcoverings, while a chair upholstered in ‘Scaramouche’ jacquard from Dedar combined with an ‘Acorn’ lamp from Bella Figura made for a sophisticated look. Playing with size, scale and proportion, handcrafted Christmas trees and presents in a palette of winter whites incorporate wallcoverings and trimmings, including those from Jane Churchill at Colefax and Fowler, Zimmer + Rohde, Arte and Samuel & Sons.
