The Bed

At once a symbol of ‘home’ and the portal to the world of dreams, a bed can also be a place of pain. Part of the Festival of Sleep.

My Beautiful Twisted Georgian Fantasy

My Beautiful Twisted Georgian Fantasy takes its inspiration from the 18th century bedroom of Ms. Dido Elizabeth Belle of Kenwood House, London. But this is no faithfully recreated 18th century interior. There’s a twist that’s fresh, modern, and thought-provoking and which connects modern Black British designers and homewares with history.
