Welcome to Blinds Direct's Design Challenge 2022! In this year's competition, we asked undergraduate students to design once again a stylish printed fabric in a particular theme – they did not disappoint.

This year’s entrants channelled their creativity and sent in their entries exploring the topic 'visions for the future'. With entries from across the UK, the judging was very difficult but we finally found this year’s winning entry!

We offered one lucky winner the opportunity to have their design printed and available for purchase on the Blinds Direct website. The design has been created as:

  • Roman blinds
  • Roller blinds
  • Cushions
  • Lampshades
  • Curtains

Each product listing features a brief biography of the designer and their process.

The winning designer was also be presented with a £500 cash prize, and the top three entrants awarded a lampshade and cushion created from their very own design, made here - by hand - at Blinds Direct.

Meet This Year's Winner

In our second student design challenge, we asked undergraduate students from across the UK to design a printed fabric exploring Visions of the Future. In a world where technology seems to revolutionise the ways we live every couple of months, what might life be like in 10, 100 or even 1,000 years?

That was the gauntlet laid down for our aspiring designers. The entries we received both surprised and enthralled us. After carefully reviewing each entry, we are delighted to announce Tabitha Baker from Norwich University of the Arts as the 2022 winner!
