Decorex International 2019

For the first time since its launch in 1978, Decorex International opened its doors in the purpose-built venue of Olympia, after a peripatic tented life ranging from the grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea to Syon Park.

The four-day show transferred well into the Olympia Grand Hall which is often selected for design events by virtue of the natural light filtering through the glass roof.

Kai – new Aravalli range inspired by the elegant imagery displayed in the Chinoiserie decorative arts.

When Design Insider visited, the event was buzzing with the aisles packed but it will be interesting to see at the final count how many of the visitors were international, now the show has moved out of its traditional September time slot in London Design Week.

The Isle Mill – latest collection Ashton Lane.

The superbly presented stands featured 400 carefully curated companies displaying enticing new product ranges and inspiring designs.

Mourne Textiles, design-led handloom weavers from Northern Ireland.

Corque Design Studio – a pioneer and leader in cork-based sustainable interior design solutions.

A packed seminar programme presented industry names discussing and debating craft, lighting, hotels and yacht design. The organisers had also kept the central feature of the champagne bar which proved as popular as ever with visitors and exhibitors alike!
