Celebrating the work of Designers Guild, whose products have changed the way we view colour, pattern and texture in our homes.See current exhibitions
Out of the Blue celebrates the work of influential design company Designers Guild. Founded by Tricia Guild OBE, Designers Guild started life in 1970 as a small section of a single shop in Chelsea’s Kings Road. The brand has since evolved and grown into a global enterprise, whose products have changed the way we view colour, pattern and texture in our homes.
Out of the Blue unravels Tricia Guild’s unique and creative approach, focussing on her inspiration, her intuitive design methodology and the techniques, processes and materials used. Frustrated with the lack of truly contemporary fabrics and wallpapers for interiors, Tricia’s vision was to create a lifestyle. Tricia showed people how to put the different elements of a room together; how colour, pattern, texture and form can combine to create a harmonious space.
Offering unique access to Designers Guild’s archive, with never before displayed original designs and artwork, Out of the Blue will showcase the story of Designers Guild, in settings that capture the changing tastes in interiors over the past five decades.
This exhibition is currently on tour at The Arc, Winchester, UK from 27 May - 29 August 2022 and will be available for hire from September 2022.
