Kicking off the London Design Festival 2015, Decorex International will run from 20th-23rd September.
Established in 1978, Decorex – now in its 38th year – has come to be a highly trusted resource for high-end interior designers, architects, specifiers, retailers, and property developers.
This year, the show will return to the highly prestigious Syon Park with 400 exhibitors, from emerging talent to highly established names.
The central theme for this edition will be ‘the future of luxury’, and a series of interactive feature areas and conversations will explore the subject.
Following on from the success of 2014’s Future Heritage feature, Corinne Julius, design and applied arts critic, will curate this year’s section, with an exceptional selection of today’s leading makers.
The Champagne Bar is another key feature of the show, and Russell Sage – renowned both in the interior design and fashion worlds – will be taking on its design this time around.
“I was thrilled to be asked to create this popular space for Decorex,” says Russell. “We’ve chosen to collaborate with our Royal holding friends at Gainsborough Silk to really showcase and celebrate a company with over hundred years of skilled craftsmanship, as well as feature a few of its incredible stories of service to some of the greatest buildings and projects in the world.”
“I love to support British craftsmanship and this seemed the perfect opportunity to create something memorable for Decorex guests to enjoy.”
Just a few of the brands launching collections at the show are Kai – which will be launching its new Paradise and Jaipur fabric collections; Tigermoth Lighting, which will be launching the new Aureole collection of table lamps and wall lights, and furniture designer Giovanna Ticciati who will launch her latest design, the Parterre coffee table.
Luxury tableware, decorative accessories and lighting brand, Harlequin London, will present four imaginative vignettes at the show, each dedicated to a different trend, current and on the horizon – ‘foliage in fashion’, ‘neo-futurism’, ‘geometric and warm metals’ and ‘AW14 colour forecast’.
Elsewhere, Andrea Felice will be presenting its handcrafted contemporary furniture – including its striking Elementi design – while British manufacturer and lighting design company, Copper & Silk will showcase its latest products.
With its diverse array of products, guest speakers and dedicated features, this year’s Decorex is set to be an unmissable event for the design industry.
