Essex Interior Design Event Triumph

essex interior design event triumph

Our debut Essex interior design event took place this week and what a triumph it has been!

We were delighted to be able to bring our well-loved interior design event to this new region and debut at the wonderful Down Hall Country House near Hatfield Heath.

Down Hall is one of England's most established country house hotels and this Victorian country estate is surrounded by 110 acres of woodland, parkland and landscaped gardens, some of which is protected by the Essex Wildlife Trust. Down Hall’s luxury interiors, ornate ceilings and abundance of natural daylight provided the perfect venue for our interior design event. Our visitors certainly took the opportunity to discover and explore everything the show and venue had to offer.

"Sunny and leafy on the way in" @knightdesigninteriors
"Glorious weather... Gorgeous Trees" @thehouseofup
"Super excited to have this trade show so close to us" @samanthapopeinteriors
"Sunny and inspiring day at design central" @oliveandoliveinteriors

Our Essex interior design event featured a wide variety of luxury brands and suppliers who were all delighted to showcase their latest collections and products. Our exhibitors were delighted to be part of this brand-new regional event and to meet so many interior professionals from the area.

"... One of a kind wallpaper. So innovative and forward thinking! @omexcowallcoverings"
"A great morning @designcentraluk sourcing some beautiful fabrics..."
"Exquisite wallcoverings" @kerrylairddesigns

We welcomed new exhibitors Catherine Charles Headboards, Chatham Glyn Fabrics, Graham & Brown, Metal Clad and Rough Old Glass to our Essex interior design event. We are always delighted to host a diverse range of exhibitors to provide our visitors a source of everything they would need or consider in their upcoming interior projects.

As usual our Design Central visitors were buzzing with creative energy and many were already making use of their complimentary coronation tote bag to keep their new finds and research in.

We are so grateful to have so many talented designers, stylists and interior professionals all in one location. It’s what truly makes our interior design events and keeps our industry thriving! We take great care in providing accessible interior design events in regional locations as design does exist outside of London - the entire ethos of our events.
