So, the end of another fabulous and very busy London Design Festival. Whichever venue we visited the buzz and creativity just blew us away! Our own little creative spot was down on the South Bank behind the OXO Tower, where Design Junction had taken over some space. Doing their utmost to green up our urban jungle was the amazing Urban Roof Gardens, a dynamic London company that aims to blur the boundaries between people and plants and create a little bit of roof art along the way. Urban Roof Gardens borrowed some of our outdoor furniture to complete their installation and we were pleased as punch to be involved in our own small way.
Some late summer outdoor furniture news from us (yes folks… summer’s not over yet!).
Design Junction is a curated exhibition of the latest cutting-edge design. The event is part of the London Design Festival and takes place across three venues on the South Bank. We absolutely love the South Bank – it’s a fabulous part of our exciting city, with hundreds of international brands, boutique shops, tons of outdoor installations, as well as delicious pop-up eateries and bars – and it’s got one of the best views up and down the River Thames that you’ll find anywhere in this part of town. There’s also the Globe Theatre within spitting distance, along with Tate Modern and, just over the Millennium Bridge, St Paul’s Cathedral. It’s definitely a place where you feel history is slap bang up against modern, urban living. Continue reading “Go Modern’s outdoor furniture X Urban Roof Gardens”
We’re still deep in garden furniture mode at Go Modern. As the weather begins to improve (ahem) and the days certainly are longer it’s all about getting back outside, keeping the borders watered and that first cut of the lawn.
We’ve more new outdoor designs to show you here and some of the prettiest furniture we’ve seen in a while, starting with one of our newest partners Saba Italia. But it’s not just about the aesthetics, striking as they are, as with all our outdoor designs they have to meet our strict criteria for robust materials and advanced technology.
Saba Italia are a young Venetian brand where fashion meets furniture meets – exceedingly good design. They have produced two new outdoor chairs that are beautifully decorative and quite different from the norm.
Well, apologies for our break in transmission… its been a busy few months!
For the whole of the London Design Festival in September, Go Modern discovered its green fingers, as we transformed our Kings Road showroom into a ‘magical outdoor garden sitting room – inside’ to showcase the very latest of our luxury outdoor furniture from Belgian manufacturer Manutti. We were also celebrating a very special anniversary as Go Modern turned 10!
