The World of Interiors’ Showstoppers

Embroidery is big this season, both figuratively and literally. Being able to clearly see the maker’s hand in an object piques our curiosity, as well as giving us a respect for artisan processes. Schumacher’s ‘Marguerite’ fabric (pictured) is a beautiful example; it features vertical bands of folky wool embroidery on a linen ground, the subtle irregularities in the yarns creating both depth and charm. Available from Turnell & Gigon, it won The World of Interiors‘ Showstopper award at London Design Week 2018 – pictured below is Turnell & Gigon’s Mark Cotsford picking up the award from The World of Interiors‘ editor Rupert Thomas.

Four further designs won Highly Commended awards: an acrylic console by Sarah Stewart-Smith, from McKinney & Co; ‘Fabry’ fabrics by Manuel Canovas, from Colefax and Fowler; ‘Garden Party’ fabric by Gert Voorjans from Jim Thompson; and Julian Chichester’s ‘Avante’ and ‘Tenava’ vases.
