Isabella Blow - Fashion Galore!

I hope to get out  of the showroom next week to take in the Isabella Blow fashion exhibition at Somerset House which opens on Wednesday.  A huge influence and inspiration to so many artists and designers, this is such an exciting opportunity to see one of the major private fashion collections in Europe.

Autumn Nights

These cold autumn nights are perfect for getting cosy at home and finding time to read or flick through some books or magazines for inspiration. I absolutely love the photography in Tom Ford’s book ‘Ten Years’. The images are simply breath-taking and great for colour inspiration.

Fabric Collection

We are all delighted here at Louise Bradley with the response to our new Fabric Collection and Kimbolton Court based Fabric Room.  Our clients have been extremely enthusiastic over the simplicity our show lengths offer when envisioning a finished sofa, chair or other upholstered item. Our Fabric Launch also recently had more coverage in the Saturday Telegraph Magazine!

We are excited to be getting closer to the re-opening of our Walton Street Showroom which will be dedicated to the LB Accessories Collection. The refurbishment is now well under way and we have some beautiful new ranges, including these decorative Agate Slices. Great to keep in mind during the run up to Christmas!

Busy week...

It has been a very busy week for us all in the LB offices. Marni in particular found our latest showroom shoot quite exhausting! But made sure to get involved and keep a close eye on all the action.

London Fashion Week

I love to keep an eye on the shows at London Fashion Week, and was really taken with some of the ideas and themes in the Christopher Kane show. There was a mix of minimalist monochrome evening dresses, as well as colourful floral pieces that provided a beautiful contrast and really lit up the show!

Wednesday, September 11, 2013


We had a wonderful weekend in Chantilly, France where we visited ‘The Living Horse Museum’, a remarkable 18th Century architectural masterpiece dedicated to equine art and culture. Renowned as one of the most beautiful stables in the World, it was built by the Seventh Prince of Conde as he believed, after death, he would be reincarnated as a horse and wanted stables that were worthy of his rank. We were overwhelmed by the grandeur of the magnificent Courtyards and the stunning Grand Stables housed beneath an impressive 28 metre high dome. A truly amazing building filled with history.

Miles Aldridge

I am hoping to escape the Design Studio long enough this week to take in the Miles Aldridge retrospective at Somerset House. Miles really caught my eye as the Harvey Nichols 'New Breed' campaign photographer, and his use of vibrant colours splashed across enormous photographic prints will surely make this a fantastic summer exhibition.

More beautiful arrivals for Autumn!

I just love the Lyon Armchair, part of our new collection for Autumn 2013. Luxurious upholstery, stud detailing and elegant design details make this chair a stand-out item, and one that is sure to command attention in any room!

Sun Inspiration

If you are feeling inspired by the sun, the Burford Sofa is the perfect sofa for a garden room or just a light, airy space. It is supremely comfortable and the loose linen cover gives it a relaxed contemporary feel.

It also looks wonderful in white...

RIBA Awards 2013

I have just had a chance to catch up on the results of the Royal Institute of British Architects Awards 2013, and I particularly loved one of the winners of the London category, designed by Dixon & Jones - Quadrant 3. It is a great example of modern large-scale architecture, a stunning and innovative use of an enormous triangular space in the West End.

Rutland Chairs

I love to use symmetry to bring a room together and provide a focal point. This can be achieved with accessories, such as lamps and vases, or with furniture like the Rutland Chairs shown here. These elegant matching chairs are a lovely addition to both classic and contemporary rooms, and are very comfortable too!

RHS Chelsea Flower Show

My part of London is buzzing this week as the RHS Chelsea Flower Show has descended upon us. I have taken a quick look around and particularly loved The Laurent-Perrier Garden. It unites the classic style of French and English gardens, and gives a wonderful contemporary take on a romantic garden.

The show runs until the 25th May at the Royal Hospital, Chelsea

Cannes Film Festival 2013

I have been looking forward to seeing what the stars choose to wear on the red carpet at Cannes - and so far they have not disappointed! I adore this Dior Couture dress worn by Nicole Kidman yesterday.

The Demi Lune Cabinet

Baz Luhrmann's adaptation of The Great Gatsby, which opens the Cannes Film Festival this week, has really caught my imagination. The glamour of the Roaring Twenties has had so many lasting influences on fashion and design, and items from my own collection are no exception. I particularly think the Demi Lune Cabinet would fit in rather well in Gatsby's home!

Catch it at the Hayward Gallery in the Southbank Centre, before it finishes next Monday the 6th of May.
