Sneak Peak: Heals AW13 press launch

A quick pop into the Heals Autumn/Winter press launch to preview their designs for the coming season, and design lovers are in for a treat: in the autumn Heals will unveil a completely new lighting department in their flagship West End store, filled with stunning lamps made from a huge variety of diverse materials and in all shapes and sizes, from breath-taking flowing jelly-fish style pendants, to patchwork standard lamps and glowing chairs, as well as a fabulous selection of accessories from ceramics to textiles:

I’m also particularly excited about the work Heals are doing with Out of the Dark – this fantastic charitable social enterprise recycles and revamps salvaged furniture, simultaneously training disadvantaged young people in craft, DIY and work skills. Check out this fab coffee table, below – and do click on this Out of the Dark link to find out more about this inspirational project.
