Comments on: London Design Festival: Britain’s Treasures in the V&A Enjoy the very best of London Fri, 23 Jan 2015 12:06:16 +0000 hourly 1 By: Olivia Sprinkel Wed, 01 Sep 2010 13:03:25 +0000 As one of the writers lucky enough to be involved in the project, the British Galleries certainly do inspire an outward looking connection with the world, and deep curiosity. For example, my treasure was a Chinoiserie armchair from 1754, commissioned for Badminton House in Gloucestershire. I found myself reading up on the British obsession with all things Chinese at that time. And that in turn led to me looking inwards, to the land of the imagination.
