In addition to the fifty-strong community of furniture showrooms, the area is home to myriad historical buildings. Clerkenwell lends itself as the perfect backdrop for the exposition of the latest from the contemporary design scene. The juxtaposition of all that is new and emerging showcased in these significant spaces makes for an evocative and inspiring experience.
