Affordable Art Fair Battersea 18th October 2018
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 British style.
Maggie’s, Royal School of Needlework and Fine Cell Work will be the show’s charity partners this year.
