Lee Broom at London Design Festival 2010

I’ve just come back to the office after a few hours of London Design week. I’ve been running (or should I say cycling) around East London like a mad women trying to fit it all in! There are some really beautiful pieces on show and all very inspirational but one thing that really stood out as well as the designers was Redchurch Street. My husband use to have an office there until recently and so it’s been really interesting watching the place develop over the last few years. First came Shoreditch House then the odd gallery, The super trendy Boundry and now you can’t move without coming across a modern art installation (all behind graffiti doors), a trendy (and usually overpriced) deli or a quirky boutique shop. I absolutely love the change and really enjoy looking at all the designers work, especially on First Thursdays BUT, some of the people are painfully trendy and the hairdos!! Anyway, back to the matter in hand, I am going to post my favourite finds over the next few posts. The first designer I wanted to talk about is the brilliant and innovative Lee Broom.

Lee Brooms display on Redchurch Street

Lee’s work never disappoints us and his latest collection was no exception. It’s called One Light Only (OLO) and is showing in non other than…Redchurch Street. The collection is inspired by Art Deco jewellery and fashion from the late 1970’s. I think the lights are beautiful – what you think? Also shown are some of Lee’s older pieces.
