London Design Festival 2022

17th – 25th September

Every year, the best and brightest creators and makers come together across the capital in celebration of all things design, and our windows always have something exciting to share. This year marked 20 years of the London Design Festival, and we celebrated with It's Nice that for double the fun with 'Meet Me in the Metaverse.' Taking over our Chelsea windows, the immersive installation saw six future-facing artists reimagine some of our new-season furniture into never-before-seen virtual creations. See below for links to our artist interviews, and check out the Conran Shop Future Gaze AR filter on Instagram.

London Design Festival 2021

18th – 26th September

In 2021, we once again got to celebrate the festival in physical form! To mark this hotly anticipated return, the French artist Damien Poulain transformed our stunning Chelsea windows with his 'Magical Value of Shapes' display, creating the perfect backdrop to our new season exclusives.

London Design Festival 2020

7th – 20th September

With the COVID-19 pandemic wreaking havoc across the globe, 2020's London Design Festival celebrations did not go ahead as planned for us. Nevertheless, we were delighted to unveil two new furniture exclusives with Vitra and Knoll to mark this most exciting time of the year. The first was Charles and Ray Eames' LCW Chair in a gratifying union of ash and walnut, and the second Eero Saarinen's unmatched Tulip Table with a seductive Sequoia granite tabletop.

London Design Festival 2019

14th – 22nd September

We marked the 2019 London Design Festival with two major collaborations across our London stores. The first, a banquet of art-inspired design objects via international gallerists Hauser & Wirth, the second, a multi-sensory installation by design studio Sella Concept.
As the inaugural hub of Marylebone Design District, the window of the Marylebone store presented a bespoke dining table of objects inspired by the work of Hauser & Wirth’s critically acclaimed artists. Following a week of events happening around the district, as is tradition, The Conran Shop threw the official LDF party to celebrate. DJed by Pippa Brooks and sponsored by our long-standing partners Remy Martin and Isle of Raasay Gin, guests went on into the night taking in the finesse of Samuel Wilkinson’s Kvadrat/Raf Simons-lined Latis Chair series and Matthew Day Jackson’s moon-inspired Kolho collection.

Finishing off LDF in style, Sella Concept‘s Ad Infinitum: The Party welcomed over 1,500 guests at our Chelsea store, DJed by Sasha Brown. Each curious observer had the opportunity to set their eyes on the immersive installation, featuring exclusive collaborations between The Conran Shop and Vitra, Carl Hansen & Søn and Knoll. From the supremely comfortable, Australian sheepskin-upholstered Womb Relax Armchair to the dazzling ‘Fusion Fire’ granite Tulip Table by Eero Saarinen, spectators had the chance to witness these extremely limited-edition reinterpretations of design classics for the first time.


London Design Festival 2018

15th – 23rd September


For our 2018 celebrations, The Conran Shop partenered with Pinterest to transform our Chelsea store into a voyage of inspiration, bringing together the online and offline worlds to create a game-changing new way to discover design. This was the very first time that Pinterest collaborated with a brand in the UK on this scale, and the partnership debuted a landmark sculptural pin installation.


We also unveiled a true blue collaboration with Carl Hansen Søn in Marylebone, debuting Hans J. Wegner’s world-famous CH24 Wishbone Chair in an updated indigo lacquer. Finished with a Hiut Denim Co. cushion pad, the classic CH07 Shell Chair is presented in African wenge wood for the first time ever.
