Must-Visit Shows for 2015

New collections are pinging into our inbox from designer after designer, and sometimes we just don’t know how we’re possibly going to incorporate them into our homes. How do we know which are going to stick around? And which are just a passing phase? Which shades and patterns are actually going to be big next season?

Exhibitions and shows are the best place to find answers to these questions, inspiration and a good deal more. Plus they’re so much fun! (We do love collecting the freebies.)

And with the next batch of Home Improvement and Interior Design shows just around the corner, we’ve chosen 5 you cannot afford to miss from all over the UK.
