We are absolutely thrilled to be working with Tent - it's one of the biggest events at London Design Festival so it's very exciting to have Dulux here. With so much inspiration on offer in one place, it's brilliant to see how other designers and brands are continuing to grow and develop year on year.

- Rebecca Williamson, Senior Colour, Design & Content Manager, Dulux

I have been coming to Tent since it began 8 years ago and I feel proud to see how much it has flourished and grown over that time; grown more mature and the quality of the exhibitors has risen. You have a nice synergy between young independent designers showing as well as more established companies and that gives the show a different rhythm; a different pace.

- Max Fraser, London Design Festival Deputy Director

The organisers not only understand creativity but more importantly support it. As a result, the show is sophisticated, dynamic and professional. Above all, it is spirited and passionate, both elements you do not associate with traditional trade fairs.

- Afroditi Krassa, Interior & Brand Designer, Itsu Creative Director

Tent London 2015 provided me with two fantastic showcase opportunities, the first as overall guest designer for Dulux Colour Futures to represent the Colour of the Year across a 200 sqm space where I re­imagined my 'Diagonal Gradient' design into an extruded, spatial flooring concept. The second space saw the launch of some of our most striking designs yet! including our 'Ecclesiastical Botanica' Silks and our rapidly broadening line of cushions. Our press coverage has been phenomenal and stockiest and sales are all expanding.
