The One Day Box: A Life-Changing Love of Home

  • This event has passed.
Sunday 8th October 10:20 - 11:20 | LitFest Marquee

Interior designer Flora Soames founded her eponymous firm in 2009 and launched an acclaimed collection of fabrics and wallpapers in 2019. Informed by her background in art and furniture, her style exudes the traditional charm of English country homes while incorporating modern, original touches that are comfortable and design-led. This embrace of old and new – along with Soames’s passion for collecting, heritage, colour and pattern – has resulted in an impressive portfolio of project in the UK and beyond.

Inspired by the concept of a One Day Box – a place, real or imaginary, where we store fragments of our past that spark a feeling of connection – Soames will present her reflections on the concept of home, and will explore the sentiments evoked by certain objects during seminal moments in her life. From personalities to places to beloved objects, Soames will show how our patchwork of memories can energise the process of creating and living in a home.
