'Putting craftsmanship centre stage of the world’s creative capital' - Savoir Beds celebrates London Craft Week

We are very excited to announce our participation in London Craft Week - a brand new event taking place across the big smoke this week from the 6th-10th of May.

The inaugural event has been showcasing exceptional craftsmanship through a journey-of-discovery programme featuring hidden workshops, lesser known makers and highly specialised skills alongside famous shops, galleries and luxury brands.

Tomorrow, Savoir will play host in our Wigmore Street showroom, and will be demonstrating the making of one of our world-famous No.2 beds - with our master craftsman, T.J Brown, working in the showroom window.

We would like to invite guests to get a truly first-hand insight into the processes involved in making one of our beds, including techniques like star-lashing, stuff-and-stitch, slipping, side-stitching and tufting, along with other essential upholstery skills.

Also, in addition, the workshop will play host to a display of beautifully hand-crafted pieces by furniture makers, John Galvin and Derek Wilson, who will discuss and demonstrate the techniques and processes behind their work, and the concept behind their new furniture company, FAOLCHÚ.

We really hope that some of your will swing by for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea! You can find the invitation above with more details.

We look forward to seeing you!
