Interior Design Tours

 

Interior Design Tours UK is a new and exciting initiative that makes design weeks around the world easier to navigate and a whole lot more fun!

A partnership between Justin Van Breda and Grant Pierrus, both design industry experts in their own right, will be launching the inaugural tour heading to Paris Déco Off in January 2018. 

Justin and Grant realised that Paris Déco Off was a rather untapped and daunting design festival in the eyes of many interior designers in the UK, US and abroad, but it cannot be ignored as it is fast becoming the foremost European interior design trade show. This tour is designed to help you make the most of the show and the wider design offering in Paris in January.

Please note tickets are non-refundable.

We are excited to announce the launch of the first Interior Design Tour UK, an exclusive interior designer tour to Paris for Paris Déco Off 2018, Maison et Objet and other interior design presentations in January 2018.

This tour is designed to maximise your time in Paris. You will connect with the top brands who will be offering VIP experiences designed with creative input for your maximum enjoyment.

Experiences and events will run from "The Kick-off Brunch" in the morning on Thursday 18th January 2018 until a closing cocktail event on Sunday 21st January 2018.

We are finalising events and presentations with the world's leading vendors as well as the local emerging brands with behind the scenes experiences. Stay tuned to this website for updates and final schedule release.

There will be an "editor's picks" tour to help navigate Maison et Objet.

We have also partnered with The Invisible Collection, giving access to the most exclusive ateliers and studios of inspiring Parisian design experts.

There will be various panels with industry experts and makers; such as the world renowned Nina Campbell. Panels will be moderated by editors of all our favourite magazines; such as Deborah Barker from Homes and Gardens, Elizabeth Ralls from Atlanta Homes and Lifestyles etc.

Each morning starts with a breakfast event, and each evening you will be wined and dined at intimate dinners hosted by the various supporting brands.

At the exclusive Interior Design Tours Gala on Friday night you will experience Parisian elegance at its best.

On Saturday night, after dinner, there is an after-party to taste Cognac and sample artisanal cheeses at the Sutherland-Perennials / Jerry Pair Leathers / Justin Van Breda London / The Rug Company / Fameed Khalique Pop-Up.

On Sunday morning we will browse the world famous antique flea market, Les Puces and attend the invitation-only Antiques Diva's Breakfast at Clingancourt.

A bilingual concierge will be available to help you with any requests or assistance.

We are thrilled to be partnering with The Atlanta Decorative Arts Center (ADAC); who will be offering invitation-only spaces on the tour to prominent designers from the Southeastern US in addition to the designers attending the tour from the UK.

It promises to be a great crowd! Mix with your peers whilst experiencing and exchanging transatlantic ideas.

The Tour will run from Thursday 18th January to Sunday 21st January.

We would like to thank the amazing brands taking part and the extraordinarily generous sponsors.
