It’s a rare thing to say, but this is the book that every designer should have on their shelf. Generous beyond compare, the listings alone make this the little black book of secret resources. More than a shift, what it means to design an interior has undergone a major extrapolation. Where once the interior was an architectural shell and blank slate on which the occupants would express their personality, bespoke, custom, tailored, artisan and crafted are now bywords for the elements making up an interior.

1- LA Design Festival Row DTLA, Los Angeles, California, US 7-10 June Citywide with 50 event locations, LA Design is all-encompassing in its breadth to include architecture, interior design, industrial and furniture design. It is also place-specific to LA with costume, set and experience design thrown into the mix. The central hub is Row DTLA (2017 iteration by Rios Clementi Hale Studios), a creative specific precinct of six iconic buildings with 100 shops, 15 restaurants and a whopping 1,300,000 square feet of creative offices (121,000 square metres, but the million-plus square feet was too good to resist). A program of talks, workshops, awards and events frames the festival, but for the most part it is an open invitation to the core design houses of LA with a really good (by invitation) national…
