This property was designed as a turnkey project whereby the family were able to arrive with their suitcases and could begin their new lives. A combination of new and existing furniture was used in this rental property, which was completed on a short timescale for a family relocating to London from New York.

What a Weekend!

What a fun evening we had on Thursday, celebrating the launch of Kelling Designs in Norfolk and our new product range. Having spent the weekend exhibiting at Holkham, the launch night seems a distant memory, but it was a great evening and we kicked off Kelling Norfolk in style! 

We had a great weekend at Holkham Country Fair - seeing old friends and meeting lots of new clients too and we were pleased to be so well received. We created an array of colour on our stand and were delighted to be asked to decorate the Vice Presidents tent.  

If you missed us at Holkham or are spending the week in Norfolk, don't forget that our pop-up shop is now open...

Priory House, Langham Road, Field Dalling, Holt, Norfolk NR25 7LG

10am - 4pm until Friday 28th July - do come and see our expanding range of gorgeous goodies!

Hello Norfolk!

We are very excited that July will bring the official launch of Kelling Designs in Norfolk! As well as our launch party, we will be exhibiting at the Holkham Country Fair on the weekend of 22/23 July and afterwards in Field Dalling (24-28 July), selling beautiful things from our new product range; KDLoves.

KDLoves was inspired by our love for all which is beautiful and vibrant; we want to create things that brighten up our lives. We will be selling our own range of cushions in a gorgeous variety of colours, velvet edged throws, antique textile kantha bedspreads/quilts; designed in house, and more. We look forward to bringing a bit of added fun to Norfolk and hope to see you there!

New KD2 Project - Furniture Staging, Chelsea

Working with the developer, KD2 added the finishing touches to the property furnishing it for sale with Ashdown Marks.  Using some of our favourite pieces from Julian Chichester and Andrew Martin we added life and soul to the property with bespoke artwork and pops of colour.                 

We were excited to be working back on Lennox Gardens, in the heart of Chelsea.

All Things India!

Our blog for May has been written by Zara and gives us a fascinating insight into the recent Kelling trip to India – a very full on 5 days with lots of excitements on the horizon!

We managed to pack a lot into our time in India. This was the first trip that Emma & I have done together, and I hope there will be many more to come. Our first stop was with Nitesh, who makes all of our Dhurries. He has a showroom piled high with Dhurries in every design and colour imaginable, one has to remain very focused and not get totally over excited! Our goal was to collate a collection of Dhurries for our new business, Bombay Sprout, many of the products from which will be sold by KD Loves. I always think in colour and in another life I must have been a rather well covered Ganesh as India really feels like home to me! Every street, shop front and rickshaw has been designed by some creative soul and is a real inspiration. It is a constant but wonderful overload to the senses. We finished the day having made some constructive decisions, looking forward to venturing out into the weaving villages the next day.

We had an early start and drove out of Jaipur and the surrounding countryside. Along the way, Nitesh was telling us about their wonderful Prime Minsiter, Modi, who is making so many positive changes to the lives of so many. He has insisted that every house hold has a loo of some kind and this was being implemented already in the remote villages that we visited. It is so important to know and see what goes into the making of each and every Dhurrie. It is an incredibly skilled and labour-intensive process and the finished product is a real labour of love. Meeting the weavers and their families was incredibly humbling; large numbers live and work alongside each other and family is so important to them. A very memorable morning.

With so much going on, keep watching this space….!

April Blog - Milan Design Week

Bright colours, clever lighting and dancing bears….

A key focus of the Milan Design Week this year was on the concepts of Design, Light, Future and Living, seeking an original take on contemporary living with the purpose of turning space into an experience which can be lived.

The fair took place a couple of weeks ago, and while we weren’t there ourselves, we have been admiring many of the interesting pieces/installations on display. Here we have compiled some of our favourite quirky pieces which we hope will stimulate some inspiration!

Colour

It is no secret that we are not shy of colour, so, here are a few pictures to satisfy this love. Part of the DeLightFul exhibition (below) was curated by Ciarmoli Queda Studio to offer a sensory experience to attendees, focusing on the intersections between lighting, design and technology.

Marni, the Italian fashion house, created a playground of nostalgia entitled ‘Playland’. The installation comprised of a number of different coloured sand areas, each with a range of furniture made from traditional weaving, reinterpreting childhood toys.

And if you need to keep guests entertained… these life-size bears are by Poala Pivi and not only are they made from feathers, but they also dance!

Living

We spotted this collaboration between Dolce & Gabbana and Smeg on kitchen appliances, a great way to add to a splash of colour to a kitchen!

These mirrored side tables and chair by Studio Homewerk are fun pieces in their own right and their reflection and refraction of oncoming light is an added bonus.

Lighting

Forma Fantasma presented a range of innovative lighting designs. These hoops project circles of light via a magnifying lens, to create an enhanced spotlight effect.

German Designer Ingo Maurer, displayed a series of lights made from pleated Japanese paper, a new element to his Mamo Nouchies collection. The light has a stunning shell style and creates a warm lighting effect.

Lambert & Fils presented these contemporary hanging pendants. These fun lights could have a number of uses in both private residential property and in restaurants/bars.

And finally, this lighting feature entitled ‘Isaloni’ is part of the Algorithm collection by Toann Guyen for Vibia Light. We love the wave effect, particularly against a dark backdrop for a party feel.
