Be inspired by hot looks at London Design Festival 2011

Grab your moodboards! The London Design Festival 2011 kicked off this week and what an exciting week it looks set to be. If you're looking for inspiration in the way of fabrics and furnishings and great ideas for your home or just want a fun day out with a friend, then set your sights on London. Immerce yourself in the hubbub of all things interiors, crafts and design until 25 September, with talks, debates, seminars and shows scattered throughout the captial. Then take five with a tall, skinny, sugar-free vanilla chai latte, or something stronger, and soak up the atmosphere...

Take a trip to Tent in London's East London from 22-25 September 2011 and soak up the party atmosphere. Now in its fifth year at the Old Truman Brewery, Tent London presents over 200 international exhibitors, showing the very latest in contemporary interior products - furniture, lighting, ceramics, textiles, materials and accessories. And while you're enjoying all things modern you can mosey on down south to 100% Design from 22-25 September 2011, which is a show packed with the latest product launches, ideas, designs and technology.

At Focus 2011 at Design Centre Chelsea Harbour on Wednesday 28 September you can browse the stunning showcases from over 500 international brands featuring the latest designs in fabrics, furniture, wall coverings, lighting, bathroom, kitchen and more.
