Decorex International will make its debut at Olympia London this year, from the 6-9 October, marking an exciting new chapter in the show’s 41-year history.
Offering a showcase of the very latest in high-end design, an exceptional speaking programme and highly anticipated curated exhibitions, the annual gathering attracts the leading names in luxury interiors from across the world.
Visitors can discover the new collections and commission bespoke pieces from over 400 established brands and up-and-coming makers. Displayed will be a variety of designs from hand-painted wallpapers and bespoke furniture, to conceptual lighting and printed fabrics. Exhibitors include Cameron Design House, Fiona McDonald, Fosbery Studio, Jacandra, Riviere, Rose Uniacke and Tom Faulkner.
New for 2019 is a boundary-pushing collaboration that takes visitors on a journey through a series of interconnecting spaces for an immersive and personalised encounter. Each area will be beautifully created by a selection of top international interior designers and overseen by one of the UK’s leading architects. Decorex will continue to nurture new talent with Foundation, a platform for the next generation of designer-makers of contemporary, bespoke furnishings.
For 2019, Decorex’s best-loved features, such as the bar and VIP lounge, will be taken to the next level with fresh new interpretations. Other highlights will include an array of experiential feature areas that will see makers transform areas of the show floor into live workshops, as well as an inspiring seminar programme with talks from some of the industry’s key influencers. Decorex will also celebrate luxury British craft and applied arts through Future Heritage, an exhibition of some of the best emerging talents in the UK with new work created especially for the show.
