From Taiwanese weaving to chic garden furniture, we've gathered the best London design events June has to offer.
Mint Spring Fair - 'Spring Forms'
May 13 - June 13
We love Mint, the interior design shop set up in 1998 by Lina Kanafani and known as one of London's hotspot for cutting edge contemporary design and crafts.
This spring, the design mecca presents a collection of work from two avant-garde new Dutch designers, Kiki van Eijk and Joost van Bleiswijk. From 3D printing to laser-cut lace, these designers are at the forefront of contemporary craft.
June 23 - June 26
Want to give your outdoor space a breath of fresh air? Look no further that GROW London, which pops up on Hampstead this June.
This gardening fair is like Chelsea Flower Show's hipper younger sister: showcasing a topnotchselection of outdoor furniture, rare plants and flowers, fine garden sculpture and gorgeous pots, planters, accessories and tools.
Objects: Republic of Fritz Hansen
Danish brand Republic of Fritz Hansen have launched an accessories line - their first ever - designed by a variety of international designers. It's all gorgeous, but our favourite is this burnished mirror by Studio Rosso, which has a shimmering mother of pearl effect.
Max Lamb: Basalt Crockery, SCP
Banish thoughts of dainty floral ceramics: this crockery is seriously cool. Max Lamb's new collection, which will debut exclusively at SCP this June, looks like it's been carved out of rock.
Teatime will never be the same again.
Raf Simons x Kvadrat collection, Skandium
This June, textile designer Kvadrat teams up with Belgian designer and ex-Dior chief Raf Simon on this latest upholstery collection. Elegant yet youthful, the collection is richly-texturedd and earthy in tone.
Penguin Classics Covers
This year, Penguin Classics celebrate 70 years of bringing joy to the British public, young and old; rich and poor. After decades of black, the news covers are back in jewel-bright colours.
Taiwanese Rush Weaving, Native & Co
Until 13 June
On the backstreets of Notting Hill, we've fallen in love with a new secret gem called Native & Co. Set up in December 2014, this quiet design spot in the luxurious west London design district marries East and West.
This Junes, an exhibition explores the traditional technique of Taiwanese rush weaving. Gorgeous.
Aria: Swag My Case
This pop-up exhibition marries art and tech for Swag My Case. You could carry art from Camille Walala and Polly Nor around in your handbag with you.
You'll never look at your iPhone in the same way again.
Falcon: Scented Candles
We love Falcon Enamelware. Established in 1920, they have become British icons: porcelain fused on to steel, they marry timeless elegance with incredible durability. The designs have recently surged in popularity again, and you'll find them in hip East End cafes and smart dinner-parties alike.
Now, they've launched chic scented candle range, inspired by the scents of Southern France. Lovely.
Glorious summer collection from curiosa and curiosa bring fun and games to any room. We're in love.
