Billed as ‘the unmissable show for design, innovation and emerging talent’ 100% Design is the largest and longest running design trade event for industry professionals in the UK.

It first started back in 1995 and this year expected to attract almost 30,000 visitors across its four day stint at London’s Olympia. Of the many events on the kitchen / design industry calendar, it has to be said, 100% Design is always one of our favourite days out and this year was no exception.

As well as a chance to catch up with some of our friends and trade partners on stands like Bora and Aga, to name just two, the exhibition is also a fantastic source of inspiration and a great chance to see some of the emerging design trends and innovations first hand. Textures, materials, colours and finishes seemed to be one of the main talking points at this year’s event and we were delighted to make some new contacts and enjoy some very interesting conversations during the course of the day.

As always, 100% Design has provided us with plenty of food for thought – we will certainly be going back again next year!
