 Now you can have it all in COURTS!

Proudly brought to you by the Stylish Designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen (LLB)!
It was Laurence’s style that launched BBC’s Changing Rooms in 1995 and since then, he has been the ‘go-to’ presenter for home style TV concepts in the UK, becoming one of TV’s favourite faces. Known in the UK on both the BBC and ITV for his high-end thoughtful shows that explore popular issues such as heritage, taste and style, he is a classically trained Fine Artist who has appeared in iconic National events such as HM The Queen’s Jubilee, Her Majesty’s birthday celebrations, The Chelsea Flower Show, Royal Ascot and the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition.  
Laurence’s role as Head Judge and Style Arbiter of The Apartment has thrilled Asia with his surgically-sharp judgements on taste, style and efforts of the celebrity contestants. But Laurence is not just a TV Presenter – he has been at the helm of an extremely successful design practice since 1992, with his branded products appearing in Littlewoods, John Lewis and Harrods.   
2014 saw the retail launch of The House of Laurence, the first ever LLB home collection, expressing a new energy in UK design and Glam Britannia attitude. The BBC has also been following Laurence and his exciting international design activity for a documentary to be aired in 2015 called Cracking China with Laurence.

Few weeks back...
We had the LLB Bloggers Hunt at the Launch of his designed pieces in store at COURTS!
It was fun and exciting!
We had to find the design pieces that were designed by LBB, i.e. under The House of Laurence
within a specified area at COURTS. If I'm not wrong.. there were a total of 15 items to be found. Top 3 Bloggers who managed to spot the most number of items within a specific time frame would stand to win special products from The House of Laurence.
Well.. I was lucky to came in second...
I found about 8-9 items.
Here are some of the items I found. :)


Meeting Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen in-person!

Before the LBB Bloggers' Hunt.. Laurence was there in-person to share with us his experiences on his designs and what customers can expect from the designs.
It was very captivating to hear him talk.
 He has the sense of style and humour.
with great confidence and the ability to convince his listeners.

Myself posing and modelling on one of his design chairs..
and he was behind disturbing me! haha..
I was a nice shot though.. I was totally unaware. :)
a group photo with Christy and friends.. :)
A final group photo before we wrap up The Laurence Collection Media Preview & LLB Blogger Hunt @ COURTS!

It was of great pleasure exposing to these uniquely designed furniture and items.
Furthermore, it was even more rewarding to meet the designer himself at the media launch - hearing him sharing about his designs and inspirations to them.

Head down to the nearest COURTS to check out his designs now!
