15 floral artist Rebecca Louise Law to do a fabulous installation. Were very excited about her creating something completely different and visually beautiful that will complement the architecture of the Design Centre. Ive been trying to keep this a bit quiet. Plans are also going ahead for a pop-up Tatler Restaurant designed by Wendy Harrop. Of course well also continue our Access All Areas programme in the showrooms. With over 80 events including workshops and meet the designer sessions Im sure it will be a great success. I dont suppose you could give me the names of some headline speakers we can look forward to Well one person I can tell you whos confirmed is Sir Terence Conran which Im sure will be a huge hit. Weve also got Allegra Hicks coming in to do a talk about her life in fashion and interiors its part of a new initiative called Talking Design. Can we expect to see more retail people coming through the hallowed doors of the Design Centre in the future Retail customers are always welcome. Trade and retail can co-exist happily. There are parameters in which everyone operates in and I havent had any problems with that being abused. Plus weve got the Personal Shopping Service in place meaning we can help navigate retail visitors around 100 showrooms which otherwise can be quite daunting. Finally and most importantly what about the fundraiser for Battersea Dogs Cats Home The beauty of Dog Day is there were lots of prizes including a fantastic hamper from Harrods Estates and Trevor Picketts enthusiastic support. Its mad but fun. Interior designers always support with prizes and over 50 dogs entered. The Chelsea dog owners just love the event and so far over 10000 has been raised. Focus takes place during the third week of September. For information on this years event please visit
