Enticingly named Spring Clean, this event is unmissable. A three-day pop-up shop at the Londonewcastle Project Space on Shoreditch’s Redchurch Street will be featuring a wealth of beautiful interiors to raise funds for Kids Company. If you’re an admirer of Carden Cunietti’s chic aesthetic, now you can also admire the heart behind it as the design duo are set to sell off some of their antique finds, prototypes and specially commissioned pieces at this event, all in aid of Camila Batmanghelidhja’s children’s charity, Kids Company.
Award-winning interior designers Audrey Carden and Elenanora Cunietti first came to the attention of the design world after setting up their shop in Notting Hill in the mid-90s selling antique and flea market finds. The upcoming event is your chance to tap into their timeless style as they will be raiding the cupboards of fellow interior designers as well as their own for pieces of furniture to sell at this three day event – all at reasonable prices, and with all proceeds going to the very deserving Kids Company. Adding extra creative clout to the event is a committee that includes designers Martin Brudnizki, Yannick Aubinais and Nina Campbell, Danielle Proud and neon artist Chris Bracey, all of whom have donated items to the sale. There will also be fabrics from Vivienne Westwood’s archives as well as prints by Corinne Day and Peter Blake.
The money raised will help to fund Kids Company’s ongoing project to provide meals for more than 2,000 disadvantaged children a week, which costs the charity £1m a year.
