Bold is beautiful: Tollgard at London Design Week 2024

Spring blooms in the Tollgard Chelsea showroom, where every curve reveals new creations and bold beauty waits to be discovered.

Our Chelsea showroom welcomed the captivating and curious at London Design Week this year. Makers such as Alphenberg, Bomma, Bieke Casteleyn, Gardeco, Meridiani, and Utopia & Utility offered up bold shapes that dared to take up space. Each contemporary treasure served as a poignant reminder of craft and the character it brings to our world.

Thank you to everyone who joined our drinks on Monday evening to mark the start of an incredible week. The whole Harbour was buzzing and we felt proud and privileged to be part of such an energised and inspired design community.

On Wednesday, Beautiful design was complemented by beautiful conversation as founder Monique Tollgård was joined by Elspeth Pridham of The Insider, to explore the ever-expanding narratives of automation and proficiency. The panel discussion featured celebrated industry peers Carina Reymond from Studio Raymond, and James Manby from Elicyon.

Bieke Casteleyn 

Rejecting conformity for innovation, Belgian interior designer Bieke Casteleyn created her contemporary collection, Bieke Casteleyn_shaping objects in 2015. The organic forms she dreamt to life prove to be more than just beautiful pieces of art. Soft, subtle, and inviting, each table is a bespoke creation that focuses on elevating the living experience. Hand-made in Belgium, each table is created using a cement-based plaster technique that is carefully applied in several layers.

Bieke Casteleyn makes its return to our Tollgard showroom bolder than ever, in a beautiful large dining table ready to take on an every aspect of our multifaceted lifestyles.

Alphenberg believe that leather should look like leather.  It’s a slow material: the buffalo skin the reflection of life in a rough terrain. Skin is not something that can be ‘made’, it comes into being through the process of living and growing. This Dutch company are at the forefront of working with leather in architectural and interior design, using leather to provide acoustic, aesthetic and architectural solutions.

Tollgard is proud to bring Broom, the most beautiful and bold expression of this technical expertise to London, straight from Maison et Object. Broom is elegantly fluted, tactile and luxurious. It is also deceptively simple to install. Ready-made panels in leather and suede can be ordered to size and easily installed with a cleat system.
