Barbed loves… Cane-line at the Clerkenwell Design Week

This week is time for the long-awaited Clerkenwell Design Week, which takes place in London from 21st to 23rd May 2013.

One of the UK's major independent design festivals

Clerkenwell is undoubtedly one of the best, if not the best independent design festival in the UK. The 3 day festival takes place in London, at the heart of the Capital. Exhibitions, debates and product launches attracted over 30,000 visitors in 2012 and will certainly gather even more visitors in 2013. This year the festival organisers have even created the CDW App, an application that keeps visitors up-to-date on the events and activities, so you don’t miss anything.

Clerkenwell is all about design and, even though we specialise in designer outdoor furniture, we enjoy all things design. Architecture and smaller objects have a major place at Clerkenwell and are absolutely delightful so we can only strongly advise that you go and have a look. However what we loved most was obviously the garden furniture exhibitions, and in particular the exhibition of products by one of our favourite outdoor furniture manufacturers, Cane-line.

This year exhibitors can be found in over 60 venues around Clerkenwell, from temporary pavilions to permanent exhibition locations such as the Farmiloe Building, the House of Detention and the Order of St John. The latter welcomes Cane-line this year and we couldn't have imagined better place!

Finding top of the range contemporary outdoor furniture on the wonderful historic grounds of the Museum of the Order of St John is absolutely flabbergasting. We witness a clash in styles and eras and yet a certain harmony transpires, and everything seems to fit perfectly altogether.

The Clerkenwell Design Week doesn’t last very long but if you can make it to the Cane-line exhibition then please do, as it is definitely worth it. You will be able to discover or re-discover the On-the-Move tables, the Cane-line Time Out Table, the Diamond Footstool, the Conic lounge and much more!

Making the most of your day out in London

When you live and work in London it is sometimes hard to go out after a week’s work, especially if it involves taking the Underground again. But if you go to the Clerkenwell Design Week it means you’ve done the toughest part, i.e. get out of your home, so why not make it a day and go and visit the Chelsea Flower Show too? It’s just 5 miles from Clerkenwell and we can assure you, you will not regret it. You have until Saturday 25th May to enjoy the wonderful exhibitions and amazing show gardens. The show is now 100 years old so 2013 is an extra special year for the RHS, and you will be able to see the evolution of the flower show through a display of pictures. Amazing!
