And the award goes to...

Embroidery is big this season, both figuratively and literally. Being able to clearly see the maker’s hand in an object piques our curiosity, as well as giving us a respect for artisan processes. Schumacher’s ‘Marguerite’ fabric from Turnell & Gigon won The World of Interiors‘ Showstopper award at London Design Week 2018, personally presented by editor Rupert Thomas. Four further designs won Highly Commended awards: an acrylic console by Sarah Stewart-Smith from McKinney & Co; ‘Fabry’ fabrics by Manuel Canovas at Colefax and Fowler; ‘Garden Party’ fabric by Gert Voorjans from Jim Thompson; and Julian Chichester’s ‘Avante’ and ‘Tenava’ vases.
