About Design Central
Design central was conceived over breakfast in Chelsea Harbour. Having spent over 10 years travelling o London to visit suppliers and see new collections, it made sense to bring those companies and collections to Designers in their own location.
We started with 20 companies and 2018 will be our third show. We have grown year on year and now have over 60 companies with a waitlist for 2019. This year we have a brand-new marquee to house all those new suppliers who want to see you.
Who we are
Design Central is run by Cath McCubbin an experienced Interior Designer. Her belief is that you should not have to pay to see prospective or current suppliers at an event, and that if like her you are constantly in and out of the office, trying to find time to make appointments to see reps is not easy.
Not wanting to waste their time, by you having to dash away for some onsite emergency as soon as they arrive, she thought it would be easier to set aside a couple of days to see everyone you want to in one place.
Colshaw Hall is a stunning location that allows companies to display their collections in a beautiful setting.
Design central Aim to make your day an enjoyable and constructive one. With all your favourite suppliers in one place, we help you by offering, free entry, free parking and a comprehensive show guide that can be used as a resource after the event. Tea and Coffee are available free of charge in the event space.
We have a food court for 2018 where meeting with friends over a great choice of “street/Truck” Food is available to purchase.
