In time for St Valentine and in aid of charity Kids Company, a captivating exhibition features donations from and by designers, artists and friends of concept store Darkroom. Based around the heart shape each interpretation of this symbol is different, although there are splashes of red and pink there are no clichés to be found.

Stand out pieces include a tactile, degrade, hand twisted mohair heart courtesy of Craftwork (top left), molded vegetable dyed leather heart bowls from Kuni Awai (top right), repeated brass hearts from “luxury with a wink” and Milk favourite, accessory designer Katie Hillier (bottom left) and monochromatic screen print from pattern obsessed Patternity (bottom right).


The strong and directional aesthetic of Darkroom, a store of eclectic fascinations in London's Clerkenwell, plays host and no doubt inspiration to the creations submitted. The pieces work harmoniously alongside the existing selection of high-end fashion, interior and lifestyle accessories.

Kids Company provides crucial support to children who are neglected or vulnerable. Each child in the charities care is comfortably housed, and supported emotionally and mentally then encouraged to aim high and achieve. Click here to see more about the brilliant work they do

All work on display has a set sale price of £150, a bargain to treat your Valentine and help continue the fantastic work of the Kids Company.
