WOW!house 2024, The Ultimate Designer Showhouse Returns

4th June – 4th July 2024, Design Centre Chelsea Harbour
Since its inception in 2022, WOW!house has annually showcased eminently stylish interiors in a one-storey ‘house setting’ within the Design Centre in Chelsea Harbour, assembled by some of the finest established and emerging interior designers. This year’s offering will see 19 rooms and outdoor spaces illustriously curated into yet another show-stopping display, from over 20 world-class designers working in collaboration with globally renowned design brands and suppliers.

Our goal is to pioneer a sense of wonder; to amaze and inspire by showing the world what extraordinary achievements can be made when our talented industry comes together in such an ambitious and exceptional way.

Claire German, CEO of Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour

Last year Vaughan provided our Greenwich Globe ceiling light for the centrepiece of Tala Fustok Studio's moonlight 'Home Bar', a stunning Art-Deco inspired breakfast bar offering '1930s Inspired Cocktails on the Moon'. Our distinctive globe-shaped Italian alabaster bowl ceiling light is made of natural stone and emits a beautiful glow when lit, emanating the moon within the space-inspired 'Home Bar' setting. Due to the alabaster's natural veining, each piece has beautiful, unique markings and an unparalleled standard of durability due to the components being fabricated from bronzed cast brass.

"Our WOW!house design centred around a 1930s breakfast on the moon tableau; the celestial Greenwich Globe by Vaughan was a stellar fit for Home Bar, with radiance effusing from its natural stone juxtaposed against dramatic chains. The striking pendant became a focal point orbited by enchanting features and hedonistic backlit fabric exuding a moonlight illusion. The Vaughan Globe brought electricity and dynamism to our space, whilst enhancing the escapism dialogue we endeavoured to create."

Winner of House & Garden's Spotlight Award 2024, this year's WOW!house line-up includes Guy Goodfellow, Lucy Hammond-Giles, Tolù Adẹ̀kọ́, Katharine Pooley, Andrea Benedettini, Fernando Wong, and Sophie Ashby, founder of United in Design, this year's WOW!house charity partner, as well as many more influential names from the worlds of design and decoration. The full list of designers can be found here.

This year's WOW!house charity partner, United in Design, was conceived by Sophie Ashby and Alexandria Dauley to address the lack of diversity within the Interior Design industry, with a pledge to deliver an equal opportunity pathway into the interior design industry.

When Sophie and I started United in Design 4 years ago, we had a bold vision to help create an inclusive, diverse and equality driven design industry. One that welcomed, celebrated and supported designers from all backgrounds and walks of life. Within a short period of time we have facilitated design graduates secure full time employment, launched a successful mentoring and schools outreach programme and engaged many businesses in ED&I training to support their goals of creating diverse workplaces. Our hope is that United in Design will continue to grow, create more opportunities and see positive and long lasting change for many years to come.
