DALLAS, Jan. 18, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Wells Abbott hosts 100 American designers in London, January 22-23, 2024, for an inaugural event that goes beyond the traditional showroom visit. In collaboration with their English brand partners, the Design Centre, Chelsea Harbor, and the Grosvenor Estate/Pimlico Road Design District, Wells Abbott is providing American designers with a unique and immersive design experience.

Strategically scheduled after Paris Deco Off and taking advantage of designers’ presence in Europe, guests are immersed in curated offsite excursions to Wells Abbott brands’ production facilities and workshops, witnessing the intricacies of the creative process and seeing artisans at work. Showrooms on Pimlico Road and in the Design Centre also will host designers sharing new collections and diving deeper into their artisanal process.

“We are rewriting the traditional showroom visit script by having designers engage directly with our English makers in their creative spaces,” said Lauren Hudson, President and CEO of The Wells Companies. “We are thrilled to have such a tremendous response from our American designers. Following my first trip to London in 2016 I was inspired to open a to-the-trade showroom with a decidedly British sensibility. Eight years and three showroom locations later, I am honored to launch this inaugural event connecting Wells Abbott clients and our English brand partners with London as the backdrop.”

Wells Abbott represents 25 English brands in their US showrooms that exude a distinctive English aesthetic. This innovative event reflects Wells Abbott’s commitment to its interior design clients and brand partners. Wells Abbott continues to be dedicated to the multiline showroom model and is ever evolving with its robust website, designer events at home and abroad, and growing territory sales initiatives.
