Staverton to Open New Showroom for Clerkenwell Design Week

Staverton is pleased to announce that the opening of its new showroom will take place during the 10th anniversary celebrations of Clerkenwell Design Week (21st to 23rd May).

The showroom, located on the ground floor at 17-18 Haywards Place, Clerkenwell, includes furniture from all our main ranges as well as an array of innovative products to help clients find their ideal workspace solution.

We have put together a programme of events, workshops and talks to take place in our new showroom during each day of Clerkenwell Design Week. You can come and meet our artist in residence for the period – Richard Rochester – who will share his unique charcoal technique with visitors through workshops and talks. Campaigner and former BBC producer Jo Ruxton will be telling us how we can limit further damage to our oceans and wildlife, and Workplace Consultant Steve Dobson, Head of Workplace Consultancy at Overbury, will be speaking about the benefits of biophilia – bringing nature into the office.

The week will be topped off with an invite-only showroom-warming party with food, drinks and entertainment. If you’d like to come along, please email carlo@staverton.co.uk with your details.
