British designer: Corita Rose

Trade shows and exhibitions are oddly knackering, I find: it’s amazing how just looking at a lot things in quick succession can suck the energy out of you. At the end of a long day trucking round 100% Design and Tent London, two of the London Design Festival’s biggest draws, I had a massive visual pick-me-up when faced with the technicolour wonderland of Corita Rose‘s stand at Tent. The firm make ace velvet and cotton textiles and furniture that are a dose of instant sunshine, and seem to take their influence from any culture that loves eye-popping colour, from Romany to India to South America. It’s kind of weird, then, to discover that Corita Rose is based in Dorset and all of its products are made in the UK. But it just makes me like them all the more.
