Who, us? At the Made.com showroom re-launch with Lianne @albertandmoo and Siouxsie @too_much_leopard? With our reputation? You’re damn diggedy right, and we had the most fun we could’ve had with our clothes on.
A bit of backstory: Made.com have had a showroom on London’s Charing Cross Road since time began, and it’s always been a touchpoint for anybody who wants to sit on a sofa before they buy it online. To say that space has been re-launched is to vastly understate what the team have done.
It’s quadrupled in size. It’s got more digital wizardry than the Starship Enterprise and it’s jam-packed with beautiful furniture. More than that, it’s not laid out like your average store. It’s a highly curated lifestyle experience, zoned by different styles so you don’t have to wrack your brains wondering what goes with what.
At the bash we gorged ourselves at the dessert station, replete with ice-cream luges, and picked the brains of Patch Plants to try and figure out why we’re unable to sustain any plant longer than a month. We ate our body-weight in macaroni cheese then designed our own Bauhaus vase courtesy of Studio Rhonda, who, judging by the amount of work she churned out, is sporting a pair of bionic arms.
Massive thanks to the Made Team for putting on one hell of a party and for pimping out their store, of course. If you’re local to London go check it out for yourself, it’s a veritable labyrinth of loveliness you’ll find yourself wandering around for hours.
