“The oscars of the design world”
“Prepare to be wowed”
Step into a world where design dreams come to life, where creativity knows no bounds, and where every corner exudes wonder and inspiration. Welcome to WOW!house, the ultimate showhouse presented by Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour.
Built within the Design Avenue, WOW!house is a one-of-a-kind showhouse stretching 500 sq m. Featuring 19 full-size rooms and outdoor spaces — each one is uniquely designed by world-class interior designers, working in collaboration with globally recognised design brands and incredible suppliers.
“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.
An immersive journey like no other, we invite you to experience at first-hand what is normally out of reach – the work of masters in their field.
A spectacular opening party to support this year's charity partner United in Design. At the unforgettable evening on Monday 3 June 2024, join the industry's leading lights and be the first to see the extraordinary rooms in the WOW!house before it opens to the public.
United in Design was founded by designers Sophie Ashby and Alexandria Dauley. The charity is driven by a need to deliver an equal opportunity pathway for entry into the interior design industry for people from black, Asian, ethnic minority and soio-economically disadvantaged backgrounds. WOW!house is proud to support this worthwhile charity.
From concept to execution, sustainability of the WOW!house has been an integral facet, with the belief that even small changes can make a difference. All designers worked to the brief that as much as possible should be repurposed and recycled.
The modular facade, made from 3D-printed bioplastic, has been reconfigured and used again, while the wider build structure will be taken down, stored and used for subsequent shows. All flooring will be lifted and re-used in other projects, and fabric walls and ceilings repurposed. Furniture, fixtures and fittings will be returned to the suppliers. Limited show guides will be printed and visitors encourage to digitally download information.
