Dressed today in bright turquoise skinny jeans, with one eye on making coffee, the other on the shoot in hand, Lucy is a powerhouse of activity. She is one half of Showhome, the team behind the successful design shows, Midcentury.Modern and Kids.Modern, the family design show, which launched in 2008. Lucy’s business partner is Petra Curtis, an ex-graphic designer and a mother of three. When the pair first came up with the idea for the shows, they had a firm vision. “Aesthetically, I am a perfectionist,” says Lucy. “I wanted the shows to be the best of their kind – better than a local fair but not so big as 100% Design.” As the mother of two young children – Molly, seven, and Bert, three – Lucy knows that design-conscious parents are hungry for child-friendly design.
The upcoming Kids.Modern exhibition will feature work from 50 designers, from established names like Ella Doran and Lionwitchwardrobe, to new companies like Mimimyne, Bugge, and Spinifex, as well as established mid-century furniture dealers, such as Molly-Meg. “While the show offers the chance to buy something beautifully made, to treasure, and then pass on, we have our eye very much on affordable design, as we know that everyone is feeling the pinch at the moment.”
