Conran Store Spring 2017 – Michelin House London

I love popping into The Conran shop when I’m in London, there is always so much inspiration to be found.

This spring they have turned their windows into rooms by adding in a sub shopfront as you walk through the doors, it also acts as a backdrop to the windows.conran-brompton-road-londonimg_1390

I have noticed a trend building over the last year for using Critall style metal window frames in many stores. But conran have also added simple blocks of colour to some of theirs, i saw  lots of stores using colour blocking whilst looking around London.

Conran have continued the colour blocking theme inside their store, using it to great effect on walls, architectural features and fixtures.

They are using it for way finding as well, helping to lead customers on their journey through the store.

I love this trend/style wall they have created in their furniture area, it really stands out and offers customers great simple information.

Love the clash of bright ribbons against this royal blue wall.

Where they do not have a surface to paint they have been inventive and used plants to add the colour.

Invisible thread chandelier

Love this chandelier in Heathrow’s T5, it’s all hung from invisible wire, it must have taken ages to get the shape perfect.

Here are a few other photos of the completed store.

We used lots of apple crates to give height on fixtures and for holding large amounts of products under fixtures. They are very versatile and can be used in many ways. If you would like to buy apple crates from us please contact ph@internationalvisual.com

The simple use of colour is very effective.

Flooring trends 2016 – Solid Floor Company

When it comes to trends in flooring we are definitely talking more evolution than revolution. A timber floor should after all last you a life time and a carpet or rug can serve for many, many years if looked after properly. Nonetheless flooring, being the foundation of any design scheme, needs to feel fresh, current and in keeping with the concept proposed.

At Solid Floor we have always taken great pride in having our finger on the pulse of the dynamic world of interior design and are always game to enable architects and designers to realise their clients’ dreams and ambitions. Therefore we would like to share with you our predictions for the future, as flooring is far from boring.

Read up on what is cutting-edge and happening now in flooring.
