This year’s London Design Festival was an eventful one for designer Fiona Barratt-Campbell (opens in new tab), who, just one year after launching her eponymous furniture brand FBC London (opens in new tab), introduced a new studio and showroom space in London’s Victoria as well as the brand’s first limited edition furniture collection, ‘FBC London Privé’.

Following the opening of FBC London’s Pimlico showroom last year, the new Victoria space will be the brand’s second retail outpost and flagship, offering up a larger gallery-style space in a former post office building. The 6,000 sq ft space is due to be opened to the public in March next year, providing an industrial backdrop for the brand’s opulent designs.

The new limited edition pieces have all the hallmarks of Barratt-Campbell’s distinctive, textural design style. Limited to small runs of ten or under, the first two pieces to launch as part of the FBC London Privé Collection are the ‘Armour Chairs’ with cast bronze bases and striking turquoise green suede upholstery, and the glossy oak ‘City Cabinet’ with copper handles and doors made from hand-applied chipped oak. Barratt-Campbell plans to add up to four new pieces to the Privé collection each year, with designs inspired by nature, the built form and Roman history and artefacts.

At last week’s launch, an exquisite one-night-only lighting installation by New York-based lighting designer Lindsey Adelman was also on show. The lights, including Adelman's new ‘Branching Chain Light’ and ‘Clamp Light’, were a perfect partner for the showroom's industrial aesthetic.

Completing the showcase was Barratt-Campbell’s impressive cast bronze valet, designed in collaboration with Alexander McQueen, which was unveiled earlier this year at the Salone del Mobile as part of the Wallpaper* Handmade exhibition.
