I am writing this letter the morning after our new-look Design Awards event at Somerset House. In place of the traditional ceremony, we created an immersive installation celebrating our 19 winners, a pick of people, projects and products. It was a great evening; known names were celebrated, new faces were unearthed. I am delighted by the talent the judges identified. Discover our 2019 stars on page 68 of this issue. Also this week, I hosted a wallpaper workshop at the V&A with historian Joanna Banham and interior designer Nicole Salvesen. We started the afternoon with an overview of wallpaper since 1509; the earliest surviving fragment of European wallpaper, found in Christ’s College Cambridge, dates from this year. It was made by Hugo Goes of York and has a damask-style pomegranate design.…

one to watch

Q Were you a creative child? I was very sporty growing up and obsessed with horses, which meant I didn’t have much time for artistic pursuits. As I got older, I developed a passion for fashion and that’s where my creativity began to flourish. I’d spend my winnings from competing at show jumping on my wardrobe! My parents have great taste and encouraged self-expression. They both have great style. € Q Tell us about your first interior design job? I worked for several interior designers before striking out on my own. My first solo project was a country estate and guest villas in Ibiza. It was a huge undertaking, but the client trusted my vision and had faith in me. I had total creative freedom, which was the dream for a first project. Q…

escape the city

For antiques dealer and furniture restorer Jonathan Burden, the weekly escape from New York is a vital aspect of his lifestyle. On Friday evenings, he makes the journey to the Hamptons, where he takes the Greenport ferry, arriving at Shelter Island to join his wife JJ, a costume designer, and daughters, Ophelia, 13, and Florence, 11, at their weekend farmhouse.

CLASSIC WOODEN SEATING This Windsor chair was inherited by Jonathan from his family who lived on Lindisfarne, Northumberland. More recently, this traditional design has been adapted for a rustic modern aesthetic: Ercol’s Originals Chairmakers chair is sure to turn heads, while Heal’s ever-popular Originals Windsor chair, also by Ercol, is available in a variety of finishes.
