Decorex Exhibition 2015

Decorex 2015

Decorex International 2015 held at Syon Park London certainly didn’t disappoint this year. In fact, the show seems to get better and better. Full of inspirational British and International design, it was good to meet up with clients and also discover new and exciting products and finishes which will be seen in interior settings in the coming months.

This year there were some fantastic interactive installations on display. We were able to watch De Gournay’s artists as they hand-painted designs onto gilded wallpaper. It was mesmerising to watch such talented craftspeople in action! Alongside the traditional crafts there were examples blending modern technology with timeless techniques. Volta’s painters created stunning ceilings using virtual reality!

The Future Heritage area was particularly inspiring. On display was a showcase of new works by a select group of talented British craftspeople. The beautiful pieces on display are the hottest luxury collectibles in contemporary British design. The pieces truly pushed the boundaries of design and making in ceramic, metal, textiles, wood and plastic. It was a great experience to chat to the artists and discuss their inspirations and processes.

It’s hard to say what were our favourite stands but these are a few that stood out this year…
