Where Chic Meets Sustainability

A two-stand display created through an exciting collaboration between Designs Direct and KLC School of Design

A key theme of the House & Garden Festival this year is achieving sustainability and wellness in gorgeously designed residential spaces that benefit both the environment and residents. Where Chic Meets Sustainability is a two-part display which shows how recycled, upcycled, and sustainable materials can be used. The outdoor area called ‘The Terrace,’ joined by an indoor counterpart known as ‘The Residence’, are both located in the House Fair & Grow London area.


Bought to you by up and coming interior design company Designs Direct, founded by Cindy Fuller in 2016. Known for her distinctive perception of 'Breaking the Mould'. Designs Direct is a collaboration with a collection of top class interior designers who show you how interior design can be sourced on line with a flat fee interior design service. It is Cindy's belief that luxury and style should not be an asset but instead a way of life.

Recognised as an affiliate of the renowned and well-established KLC School of Design, Cindy collaborates with their alumni which includes many well-known names in interior design and brings to the stage:


'The Residence'

The room will allude to drama and passion with its rich background, jewel tone colour palette and whimsy of tropical birds. Designed around an inviting kitchen space which is warm and intimate with the feeling of luxury. Designs Direct have invited Maria Gratsova from Bright Designs, who represent Miius Kitchens, to provide one of their fabulous non-toxic and ultra-sustainable kitchens. The display will also include some unique hand-made pieces from Timothy Oulton and Jonathan Field and an environmentally friendly made carpet from Crucial Trading. Located on stand K18.


‘The Terrace’

This outside space is very open and is fresh, inviting and bright with a black, white and tangerine orange palette also continuing the current trend of ‘tropical’. Designs Direct have teamed up with Northcourt Farm Designs who create unique and beautiful furniture from reclaimed wood. This is a wonderful example of how to build a completely sustainable space, from walls, flooring and furniture to a water feature, from just pallet wood.  Located on stand R47.

As well as two incredible features at the Festival, make the most of talks from industry experts boasting advice on how to make your space a sustainable one as well as the benefits it may have on you.
