This November, we are gearing up for two of the biggest design exhibitions in our event calendar. First up, we have Hotel Design Interiors (HIX), an extensive two-day exhibition focusing on all things interior design for the hotel and hospital industry. Secondly, we have LIGHT 23, a spectacular luxury lighting exhibition, making its mark as the only lighting event of its kind in the UK.

With the anticipation building for these two industry-leading events, we couldn’t resist shining a spotlight (pun intended) on some of our creative design showrooms right here at the BDC. From big-name new arrivals to many longstanding creatives, here’s a closer look at all our amazing design showrooms here at the BDC.
