Chelsom celebrate another successful year at Sleep 20149th December 2014
Chelsom have once again enjoyed another busy stint at Sleep celebrating what was their 8th consecutive year exhibiting at the event. This year’s stand showcased an exclusive selection of signature pieces from the latest collection, Edition 24, Chelsom’s most exciting and well received product range yet which launched in the summer.
The pieces shown on the stand this year have been designed in- house by Robert and Will Chelsom and demonstrate the latest developments in LED technology along with incorporating up and coming trends in terms of the overall product design. Beautifully designed desk, table and floor lamps all used integral LED light sources allowing streamlined product heads and shades to be created ensuring the fittings were true show stoppers at Sleep. All products on display were finished in the contrasting Black Bronze and English Brass combination, a striking new addition to Chelsom’s range of colour finishes which has proved hugely popular since launching earlier this year.
One of the most talked about lighting pieces at the show was Chelsom’s dramatic custom pendant featuring a cascade of 12 oversized squirrel cage lamps exclusively available through Chelsom in the UK for the contract market. Taking inspiration from the custom Filament range, the fitting was understated in terms of design with the decorative impact coming from the striking gold tinted 100W filament lamps suspended from a Matt Black steel frame by gold twisted flex creating a magnificent centre-piece whilst providing warm ambient lighting.
Director, Will Chelsom, commented on the success of the exhibition “We had a fantastic two days at Sleep promoting a selection of some of the most popular pieces from our latest collection and are incredibly proud of what we have achieved since the launch back in June. Sleep is the number one UK show in terms of interior design for the hospitality market and this year certainly didn’t disappoint with footfall to the stand the highest it’s been and as ever it was wonderful to meet with many of our existing and new customers and to be able to personally show them our new designs. The feedback from designers and hoteliers alike has been fantastic with many claiming that our new products were some of the best they had seen from us and it’s comments like this along with the corresponding volume of quotes and specifications we are seeing come in that make all the hard work involved in designing and producing Edition 24 more than worth it.”
