Our Tips for September Design Month in London

Head to London this September for great design and architecture exhibitions, events and shopping. Here are our top tips!

Our Tips for September Design Month in London - September 3rd 2015

If you’re a fan of design or architecture September is a great month to be in London. With its own festival (London Design Festival) and many events there’s plenty to keep design fans entertained. Here’s our tips for the month:

Open House London, 19 & 20 September

Open House London Tours 2015 3

If you love architecture (or are just a bit curious / nosey) don’t miss this weekend in London in which many of the capital’s most interesting, beautiful buildings open their doors to the public. We recommend downloading the App or buying the catalogue to plan your weekend in advance, as entrance to some of the buildings is ticket-only and they can sell out quickly! One of our must-sees is the Freemasons Hall in Covent Garden with its beautiful temples.

Design Junction, 24 to 27 September

For the best in contemporary design, the Design Junction exhibition is hard to beat. Don’t miss a visit to Victoria House with its pop-up shopping hall of 35 design-led stores to pick up a great design product. Our London local Sara will also be displaying her range of stylish reflective cycling gear, Henrichs at the show, so make sure to go and say hi! Tickets are £12 in advance or £14 on the door.

Decorex, 20 to 23 September

For luxury design, the Decorex show in Syon Park just outside London is the place to go. There’s lots of interesting talks on the agenda and we’re excited to see the launch of these innovative living boxes from one of our favourite London-based design companies Bert & May. Access for the public is only on Tuesday 23 September and cost £30 in advance or £35 on the door.
