Deciding which events to attend at Focus/17 is a bit like trying to pick food from the menu at your favourite restaurant. Much like affairs of the stomach, we tend to favour the “more is more” approach. This year’s event at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour is about giving you 360-degree exposure to all the best partners to inspire you in home design. Access is the event’s real USP, with the best part of the six-day event undoubtedly the opportunity to meet and speak with the world’s finest experts in design and craftsmanship. With more than 100 immersive experiences and talks to chose from, there’s plenty you shouldn’t miss, including Whitney Bromberg Hawkings, the Tom Ford alumna who is now founder and CEO of luxury style brand Flowerbx, Brazilian architect Fernanda Marques, and British interior designer Samantha Todhunter on how to create truly personal interiors style.
