For centuries, Eastern style has caught the imagination of the West. The East Meets West exhibition takes visitors on a journey revealing how it still casts an influence today, showcasing treasures from contemporary Asian artists juxtaposed with rare antique artifacts from the past.
Wood carving has always played an important and respected role in furniture manufacturing. Join Decca (Bolier) in conversation with interior designer Peter Hunter to find out how traditional skills by Decca’s craftsmen are combined with advanced technology to create exquisite pieces of furniture for global projects from Europe to the Far East and beyond.
From intricate hand carved furniture to handmade indigo fabrics, ancient skills bring classic beauty and timeless design to contemporary interiors. Join designers John Abbate and Michael Veal for an inspirational discussion on what sets handmade products apart and discover why they are so relevant and desirable today.
Always in love with indigo, John rediscovered an ancient technique of indigo and brought it to the 'west' for other 'indigoists' to appreciate. Hand made from beginning to end, the product is timeless and beautiful.
Find out more about the indigo fabrics and explore the various designs on the Bluehanded website.
