Chelsea Flower Show 2022


Prime inspiration for the David Harber x Savills stand at the famous RHS Chelsea Flower Show last year came from the Nuttery at Sissinghurst, one of the big spring attractions at the celebrated country house home of British author Vita Sackville-West and her politician husband Harold Nicolson.

“Our design is inspired by the Nuttery in Sissinghurst which is one of the most captivating places to be in the month of May – when we celebrate the fresh green of leaves unfurling, spring bulbs dancing above herbaceous grasses and trees coming freshly into leaf”, says stand designer Emily Erlam.

Emily is a planting specialist who has won several awards from the British Society of Garden Designers including the Planting Design Award. She is one of House & Garden's top 50 designers for 2022.

The stand, co-sponsored by luxury real estate provider Savills, featured the first official reveal of Bite II – designed for the Show with a hole and a mesmerising reflective tunnel through; and also of Teardrop Mantle, a unique iteration of Harber's popular Mantle artwork.

The patterns of Teardrop Mantle provide a second source of design inspiration for the stand. Emily Erlam explains: “we fell in love with the balance of mass and void this creates, making beautiful organic spaces for planting, decoration and movement throughout the space.

The stand also showcased a selection from our classic range including Eclipse, Iris Torus and Sentinel.
