A selection of fabrics from ‘Vintage’ by Arctic. Styled by Wendy Harrop

It’s easy to get distracted by some of the more attention-grabbing designs during showtime, but when the fun and frenzy is over, we crave balance and calm. Featuring woven linens, florals and stripes in a pretty yet fresh array of pastels, the new ‘Vintage’ collection by Arctic is just the tonic for an overwrought mind and body.

It’s the final day of Focus/11 and if nothing else that deserves a toast. So why not head up to the third floor where you’ll find The World of Interiors’ stylish Champagne bar. A pop-up bar area dressed in the chicest grey stripes this side of the catwalk, it’s the perfect place to steal a little bit of downtime, reflect on what you’ve seen and enjoy the view from above.  Find the fabric by Elitis at Abbott & Boyd.
