High design and hoi polloi
Talking of which, is Tim Pyne running out of ideas in his work at 100% Design? This year his attempts to brighten the gloom of Earls Court certainly looked natty as the first visitors tripped in on Thursday morning. He had gone for a black-and-white theme, including huge striped circular hangings. But Tim, has nobody ever told you how impractical white carpets are? They were looking a little tired by lunchtime on Thursday, and I dread to think what today’s rain-soaked visitors have done to them.
