UK, London. Earlier this month, the editor of SuperyachtDesign, Andrew Johansson, toured selected Design Centre, Chelsea Harbour showrooms to choose 20 ‘must-see’ items for guests of SuperyachtDESIGN Week. Those selected received a framed Letter of Achievement outlining the chosen piece, ensuring guests of SuperyachtDESIGN Week can spot the Editor's Picks throughout the event. So, after weeks of deliberation, the Editor’s Picks can now be revealed!
The beautiful Errol, part of the Beau Monde collection, was chosen as an Editor’s Pick from Ann Sacks. This tile, due to its lightweight nature and unique texture, is popular with yacht owners.
Black & Key’s Frank Console Table in Montagna marble on a steel base with black titanium coating. The console and its base is produced to bespoke sizes in a variety of finishes and veneers.
The Pic Nic collection from C&C Milano is available in classic colours such as marine blue and sealing wax red but also brighter ones named frog green and Tiffany.
Christopher Guy’s Chez Harrod can been used as a side table or nightstand, and features handcrafted ripples alongside Guy’s signature knot handle. A part of the Mademoiselle collection, this is one not to be missed by guests of SuperyachtDESIGN Week (SYDW).
The Wellington Desk, from the latest DAVIDSON London collection and part of their Gold Season, is finished with a high gloss black lacquer with gleaming gold accents and a black leather writing surface.
Decca’s Tristan side table, designed by Dakota Jackson, is part of their Cosmopolitan line. With a walnut burl top, polished brass inlay and the bubble effect base, this table is a striking part of their collection!

The beautiful Eden by Jim Thompson, found within Fox Linton’s showroom, is based on 19th century chinoiserie patterns and part of the ‘Forbidden Colours’ collection.
The chosen pattern ‘Saskia’ from Lewis and Wood is part of an ongoing collaboration with the Victoria and Albert museum. Inspired by an 18th century dress, this pattern can be adapted to fit any yacht design scheme.
The Magnet Lock by The Nanz Company combines innovation and style. The Nanz No 7800 series locks are the first to combine rare earth magnets and pneumatic springs. Comprised of stainless steel and brass components, the lock works well in marine environments.
The roots of the Origines collection by Pierre Frey can be found in Aboriginal art from across the globe. Comprised of embroidered fabrics, prints and jacquards, the collection is a tribute to indigenous tribes.
Porta Romana's founders are experienced yacht owners, which is reflected in the variety of marine-friendly products in their showroom, therefore the Chenille Lamp was a definite choice for the Editor’s Picks.
The visually striking Dandelion mounted light was chosen from Remains Lighting. The piece, designed by Tony Duquette, takes inspiration from exploding fireworks, starbursts and sunbursts.
Rubelli’s Delauney, part of the Substance & Extravagance collection, was selected as an Editor’s Pick due to its intriguing 3D effect. This lightweight, silk material will add glamour to any interior, at land or on sea.
