Funky furniture key to delivering Grand Designs brand

24th August 2007

Delivering a consistent and engaging brand experience was key part of the success of the Grand Designs exhibition held recently at London’s ExCeL, with every element of the show playing its part.

Particularly striking was the funky ‘claret and creamy dune’ coloured Vision furniture range, supplied by Thorns Group, which featured throughout the VIP area and press room.

The range of desks, chairs and lockable cupboards also proved a real winner with the organisers, who were supplied with offices all decked out in the complementary claret and dune colour theme.

Marisa Beckman, freelance operations manager for the organisers at Media10, the organisers of Grand Designs was delighted with the furniture. “The ranges Thorns provided were good quality and fitted in well with the needs of our design-orientated exhibitors,” she said. “What’s more, what I wanted arrived when I wanted – you can’t say fairer than that.”

Commenting on the show, Adam Aston, Thorns’ head of exhibitions, said: “It was great to be involved in such a design-led events.”

The company also has the contract to be official supplier to the Grand Design Live exhibition at Birmingham’s NEC on 5 to 7 October.
