the InteriorS event of the summer

Take a 3D virtual tour through WOW!house 2023 and relive the magic…


There is simply nothing else like WOW!house in the UK


WOW!house was a unique 500 sq m showhouse, built within the Design Avenue at Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour. Its 18 full-size rooms were created with world-class interior designers, working in collaboration with globally recognised design brands and incredible suppliers. WOW!house was exciting and immersive, allowing visitors to experience first-hand what is normally out of reach – the work of masters in their field.


“Our goal is to pioneer a sense of wonder; to amaze and inspire by showing the world what extraordinary achievements can be made when our talented industry comes together in such an ambitious and exceptional way,” says Claire German, CEO of Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour. 

WOW!house’s charity partner for 2023 was TP Caring Spaces

The show was open from Monday to Saturday from 5 June – 6 July, and all were welcome.

Tickets cost from £10, and a portion of sales will be donated to TP Caring Spaces, WOW!house’s charity partner for 2023.



The WOW!Gala was the grand finale to a spectacular event. An extravaganza of cocktails, culinary delights, games, entertainment and dancing, as well as the last chance to see WOW!house before it closed its doors, it brought the design community together for fun and fundraising.

The  event benefitted TP Caring Spaces, a cause whose ethos is “to fill charitable spaces with great design”. On behalf  Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour and TP Caring Spaces, we are grateful for your support for this charity gala.



An unmissable opportunity to purchase an array of products curated and sourced by some of the biggest names in design.

Whether seeking an elegant table, handmade curtains or a one-of-a-kind piece specially commissioned for WOW!house, visitors discovered unique treasures, viewing them first in situ before buying.  Our friendly Personal Shopping team was on hand to answer enquiries and even arrange shipping.


Why visit WOW!house?

Whether you are a design professional, an individual with a passion for interior design or someone looking for ideas for an upcoming project, WOW!house was a must-see.

Each of the 18 rooms that visitors walked through presented different styles, colours, patterns, textures, craftsmanship, art and objets, all with their own story to tell. The designers have been given carte blanche to decorate their rooms, allowing their imaginations to fly, while a specially commissioned soundscape by Leslie Kwan and fragrances by Wick & Tallow made WOW!house an even more immersive experience.

To get even closer to the heart of each space, there was an accompanying programme of talks and tours. Designers shared how they created the design magic within their rooms, and explained how it all came together. 



Once your WOW!house visit was over, your journey of inspiration had just begun. Head to the Design Centre’s 120 showrooms to talk to experts and source for your own projects; dissect what you’ve just seen over lunch at Design Restaurant by Social Pantry; or book an appointment with the Personal Shopping team.

WOW!house celebrated the very best in international interior design and world-class designers were invited to participate. Their work is not always shown to the public, but their vision shapes the way we live.

It was a unique opportunity to be wowed by their exceptional work, brought together under one roof for the very first time.

Room sponsors

Twelve of the WOW!house’s 18 rooms were sponsored by design brands of international renown. From leading names from the kitchen and bathroom industries to outdoor furniture manufacturers and fabric and wallpaper houses, they contributed an incredible level of expertise, and in many cases showcased their bespoke capabilities by making one-off pieces for their rooms, in collaboration with their chosen designers.

Conscious Creativity

The sustainability of the WOW!house has been at front of mind, from concept to execution. All designers worked to the brief that as much as possible should be repurposed and recycled.

Mamou-Mani’s facade is made from 3D-printed bioplastic. A mix of fermented sugar and wood that is a cradle-to-cradle material. The facade is modular so can be reconfigured and used again, while the wider build structure will be taken down, stored and used for subsequent shows. 

All flooring in the showhouse will be lifted and re-used in other projects, or stored for use by WOW!house 2023’s chosen charity,  TP Caring Spaces.

Fabric walls and ceilings will be repurposed into cushions and client samples.

Furniture, fixtures and fittings that have not been sold are being returned to the suppliers that loaned/supplied them.

A limited number of show guides are printed and visitors are encouraged to use the QR code in each room to digitally download full information.

Watch WOW!house 2022 come to life


Established by interior designers Bunny Turner and Emma Pocock of Turner Pocock, TP Caring Spaces was the charity partner for WOW!house 2023, and a portion of all sales will be donated to this worthwhile cause. Their mission is “to find the gaps and use our skills and network to fill charitable spaces with great design.” Since 2020, they have worked with Mencap, a retreat for cancer patients, Guy’s & St Thomas’ hospital and a women’s refuge in west London. 

“The funds that come in from WOW!house are completely transformational for our next couple of years and the scale of the projects that we can take on,” say Bunny Turner and Emma Pocock. Claire German, CEO of Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour, says that “we believe in interior design as a force for good; our environments enhance our mental and physical wellbeing. TP Caring Spaces’ initiative instantly resonated – we want to play our part by raising awareness and funds for this proactive charity that brings the design world together. Transforming cold, utilitarian spaces into nurturing, harmonious havens will make a huge difference to carers, patients and their families.”
