Bernie de Le Cuona, Sebastian Cox and Edward Bulmer work across fabric, furniture and paint that is rooted in nature. They discuss how being surrounded by a palette of natural materials leads to harmonious interiors, a better quality of life and creates a lasting, positive impact for our planet. Chair is Sarah Spiteri.
