A couple of weeks ago I was stunned to be asked to be one of The Conran Shop's 'Well Considered Bloggers' and will be part of their new blog Conran Talking Shop Stunned due to the fact that Sir Terence Conran is one of my all time heroes then to top it all
conran talking shop blog
I was asked if I would like to interview him at a big Charity Auction being held in their Chelsea store on Thursday 16th September in aid of Centrepoint, so I am off to London in the morning to
terence conran
interview my hero. They will be auctioning or rather Helen Bonham-Carter will be auctioning furniture from their Classic Collection. The whole Conran family will be there and many other celebrities and little old me along with the other nine 'Well Deserved Boggers'.
So as not to waste a trip I will also be visiting
37 old london road
37 Old London Road, that shop made famous by Mary Portas, Queen of Shops and again I will be
dazzle and denny
interviewing the famous Dazzle and Denny. I can't wait to meet them and see their shop.
Then I am off to Bouf to interview
alex griffin bouf
Alex Griffin the founder of bouf.com. Now if that wasn't enough I have been asked by Mydeco to
ghost furniture lamps
exhibit my range of Ghost Lighting in the Global Industry Exhibition at Tom Dixon's - The Dock in Notting Hill during The London Design Festival. So if you want to see a Ghost in the flesh go along and take a look on the Mydeco stand.
So my friends I will be reporting back with lots of pictures as I intend to soak up as much as I can during the Festival. I am staying in Clerkenwell which is an ideal base for such an event.
