The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Chelsea
Wealth courses through The King's Road, Chelsea's upmarket artery of West London life packed with shops, eateries and glitzy nightspots. For people-watching at its best and luxury retail therapy that's largely unrivalled, this area cannot be missed. But if this showy street starts to overwhelm or a moment of price tag shock sends you reeling, a quick detour down pretty much any of many King's Road veins will reveal a quieter side of Chelsea. Here the stately Royal Hospital hosts its world-famous flower show, and the Thames rolls along at a lazy pace, with leafy Battersea Park and its Peace Pagoda beckoning from across the river.

This is not the Design Museum. This is an upmarket shopping centre. If you are looking at high-class interior design, it has everything . The building itself is a design master piece . It's a shame that no photos are allowed without permission .

This place is an abundance of inspiration - an absolute must if you are doing up your house. So accessible and a great car park.

The Design Centre is locate at Chelsea Harbour in London. It’s expanded over the years and contains a lot of interesting furniture and ideas. Worth a visit to inspire.

Although a long taxi ride, this small museum with no permanent collection does a good job highlighting various designers. The Zandra Rhodes exhibition is excellent.

Visited the Design Centre for an event. The weather was awful but the interior of the creature is impressive. Branded shops and top quality products on show. Prices for those that have the bank balance. Access not easy but worth a trip on a dry day!

The Kubrick exhibition was okay, not that exciting, we even pointed out a mistake in the exhibition, but the building was a real waste of space and virtually had nothing inside worth a/ looking at or b/ wasn't even a design icon.

I’ve been in here a number of times and for a Design Center I find the layout really bad. Some good places to buy great stuff. Worth a visit if you have the time and patience to look around.

Attended an enjoyable event during Design Week at the Design centre in Chelsea Harbour. My second visit here and was really impressed with the layout of the specialist shops on all the floors. Café on the second floor serves good coffee and there are places around to sit and enjoy your coffee. The specialist shops cater for very high end products and service from all the shops were very attentive and friendly.
Worth visiting when an exhibition is on .Nearest Overground station is Imperial Wharf, then a very short walk to the Design centre.

Have seen this place advertised in magazines & always wondered what it would be like to visit. Really interesting, & opulent in the extreme, with some nice outside space. It's free, & not open Saturdays & Sundays. It's really easy to get to by overground train, & a wander up Lots Road onto the King's Road takes you past some interesting spots, not least the Lots Road Auction House featured in the Channel 4 series relatively recently. Not all the shops in the Design Centre were open, but we had a good look round & went into a few. Some very elaborate furniture, furnishings, 'nice things' for the home etc & really lovely public areas with interesting pieces on display, although we were there over the festive season which may have meant extra bits & pieces. Not necessarily somewhere I would return to, unless I lived in the area, but very glad I went.
