May Design Series 2015

Spring is here and there’s another show on the horizon. Last month all the buzz was around Mobile di Salone in Milan but next week will everyone be talking about the May Design Series at Excel in London? We reckon so.


Anyone who is anyone

Anyone who is in the trade – that’s designers and suppliers and other interested parties – will be looking around to see what’s the latest in furniture, lighting, decorating and three of the most important rooms of the house – the kitchen, the bedroom and the bathroom.


In this last section of rooms, there will be 120 different brands exhibiting from more than 16 countries which should mean a good selection of what’s available. This will include the ‘best of British’ and lots of new innovations in the different areas.


Suppliers and manufacturers from as far as China will be there and when it comes to bathrooms, you can expect to see everything from sleek bathroom suites to steam rooms and spas.


A wide range of exhibitors

There’ll be some classics, some unusual and some very contemporary designs on show including:


·         Fine bathroom furniture from Ardeco, Artesi and Decem

·         Beautiful frameless shower products from C R Laurence

·         Classic-styled hand painted peonies on bathroom ceramics from Chinese manufacturer Classic Art Ceramic Co. Ltd

·         Euro Bathrooms will have everything from ceramics to taps and shower fittings

·         Terma will be showing off their latest range of contemporary radiators

·         Luxurious taps and fittings will play the heroes at the French manufacturers THG stand including Collection O

·         A range of classic-styled baths can be seen at the Hurlingham Bath Company’s stand

Looking at future trends

There will be a section of the show dedicated to looking at forthcoming trends for 2016. This will include predictions for colours, materials and more that we will see everywhere in 2016. This is a favourite part of the exhibition for those wishing to keep ahead of the rest.


You can also expect reports from ‘The Best of Britain’ design as we mentioned earlier plus Designer Makers and the new student designs; this is part of a collaboration with New Bucks University.


Keep your eyes peeled

So keep an eye on the interior design magazines, blogs and social media for information during and after the show on 17th – 19th May. Of course if you qualify as a trade visitor you can book you ‘ticket’ online now.
