Taking place at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand, this year‘s Decorex Johannesburg was an unmissable décor experience which featured over 130 design and décor exhibitors; and attracted thousands of local and international attendees, ranging from interior designers to homeowners.
This year Decorex Johannesburg paid homage to the African spirit with its theme ‘Designing for Africa – feels like home‘; transforming the space with an abundance of dynamic African-inspired designs and patterns, leaving no doubt that many of the designers had been influenced by their African roots. The theme showcased the best in local and global innovation; however, it shone a spotlight on our talented local designers who displayed work which captured the coalescence between traditional African and contemporary design, making a clear statement about Africa‘s place in the international world of design.
With 6 halls to explore and exhibitors showcasing everything from product and furniture design, textiles, lighting and wallpaper. There was even a wine and bubbly bar to ensure that no one went thirsty.
One of the highlights of the event was the exciting installations one could visit, including the Instudio Trend Theatre which had talks from a number of industry experts, including an exciting talk by award-winning designer Stephen Falcke. Acclaimed designer Donald Nxumalo‘s curated space for the Decorex Designer Spotlight captivated visitors with its patterns and bold colours, which perfectly embodied this year‘s theme and placed an undeniable spotlight on the talent we have in this country.
All in all, Decorex Johannesburg 2019 was a feast for the eyes and a sensory overload. Full of vibrant colours, patterns, people; the event provided endless inspiration for anyone interested in design and décor, professional or not. It was great to see the innovation and creativity of local and international designers and design companies, as they keep on top of the trends in the constantly changing and evolving world of design.
