Last Thursday, we opened our showroom after hours for a very exciting workshop that we’d been looking forward to for months. Instagram interior stars, Lisa Dawson and Dee Campling brought their ‘Finding Your Style’ workshop to our showroom!
Twenty ticket holders arrived early for a Prosecco reception and a chance to mingle before settling down for the presentation. We had cleared the back room in our showroom for the event, setting up a beautiful screen custom-made out of pallet wood for viewing the slides that Lisa & Dee had prepared. The screen was made by Guy, one of the Rose & Grey owners, and we’re thinking of re-using it for cinema showings in our courtyard this summer!
All of the guests were sitting comfortably, as we’d laid out several of our favourite chairs and sofas to cosy up on. The presentation lasted for two hours, so it was imperative that everyone had a comfy chair to sit on, including our bestselling Hugo sofa and chairs from our Mid-Century collection.
Without giving away any secrets, the workshop touched upon ways to make your home feel as individual as you are, encouraging our guests to throw out the rule books and discover their ‘core style’. There was a fun quiz and plenty of useful advice, whether you were thinking of redecorating your home from scratch or simply wanted to ‘shop your home’ and move a few pieces around. Everyone left feeling inspired!
Immediately following the presentation, our guests wandered around the shop, mingling and enjoying snacks and delicious cakes by House Bakery, made by our very own Emma (if you’ve ever spoken to customer services, she’s the lovely person who helps you out!)
We’re now looking forward to many more events in our showroom and in further flung locations. Keep your eye on our events page for future events. In the meantime, here are a few photos from the evening.
