Although we have exhibited at Clerkenwell Design Week before, this is the first time we have had a stand in the Farmiloe Building. And the contrast between here and the House of Detention (where we were last year) couldn’t be greater. Last year we nearly killed ourselves carrying eight huge pieces of furniture and their respective stands down 300-year old, narrow, winding staircases into a damp crypt. This year our space is at ground level and just yards from where we were able to park the van. Yay!
We opted for a much simpler approach this year with just one piece requiring a stand. To make up for this, the lighting rig took an hour and a half to assemble (though Jonathan insists he tested it before we left. I have my doubts!) After a hard day’s graft – and in the absence of a cold beer (on account of my being six months pregnant), there was only one thing for it – hot chocolate and… CAKE!
