Decorex is the only show of its
kind for the high-end UK interior design industry. It hosts more than 400
exhibitors showcasing the very latest in luxury interiors and design. The
four-day event showcases furniture, interior and lighting designers alongside
fabric and textiles companies, from established names to up-and-coming makers.
Decorex brings trade buyers and manufacturers together to form a community
which is now the very essence of this celebrated event.
This year, the internationally
renowned showcase will present Blank Canvas as its show theme. Offering a carte
blanche, the concept will allow participants to explore how an empty space can
celebrate a new beginning, a chance to create something beautiful as Decorex
and its exhibitors do each year. Interior design studios Maddux Creative, Studio
Suss, Designed by Woulfe and Henry Prideaux will be design the main entrance
installation inspired by the show’s theme.
Decorex celebrates luxury British
craft and applied arts through Future Heritage, an exhibition of some of the
best talents in the UK who present new work created especially for the show. Curated by renowned applied arts and design critic and curator, Corinne Julius, Future Heritage has come to be known as the showcase
of craft to collect and commission. Makers include Tord Boontje, Jochen Holz,
Marcin Rusak and Studio Glithero.
Interior design firm Lambart & Browne will provide a
fresh direction for the show’s bar with an elegant design in a contemporary
