Firmdale Hotels



Firmdale Hotels co-owner and Design Director KIT KEMP has been invited to design this year's entrance at the new DECOREX location at The Orangery, Kensington Palace. 


KIT KEMP says 'Inspiration for this year's Decorex is The Silk Route, and the title of our stand is the WEAVER OF DREAMS.   It incorporates the hot spice colours of the East, and combines the artwork by Hermione Skye O'Hea of a weaver's loom against the backdrop of our fabric 'Willow weave.'  It was designed especially for Decorex 2013.  There are silks by Fox Linton, boiled wools by Holland & Sherry, embroidered felts by Christopher Farr, and a bespoke carpet by Capitol Carpets plus our own Botanical wallpapers.There is also the concept of using found items like used plastic bottles for lighting, and old blankets for upholstery. Decoration is about using all your senses and that includes sound.  We have the projection and sound of rainfall whilst our weaver luxuriates in his copper bath. I believe in there being 6 senses when creating a design.  The 6th sense is a feeling of 'fun,'  which I hope we have achieved for Decorex this year.' 

Decorex runs 22 to 25 September 2013

This is a design trade fair, but open to the general public on Tuesday 24th from 1pm.
