Decorex, South Africa’s premier décor, design and lifestyle exhibition, returns fresh on the heels of the Design Indaba and ready to leave its mark on the Mother City’s year of design, as Design Capital of the World in 2014.

The exhibition has become a well-known showcase on South Africa´s interior design landscape as well as an opportunity to discover emerging talent, top trends and leading brands at the forefront of Cape Town’s innovative drive.

Set to take place over the Freedom Day long weekend in April, the theme for this year’s exhibition is “design your life” with a core focus on the rise of individual style. Rather than following a particular trend, there is an understanding that the individual is the most important feature of the home and that furniture and finishes chosen should enhance their own lifestyle and reflect their style and personality. The exhibition invites visitors to explore their own creativity with pieces from designers all over the world who are translating this movement into objects and concepts that target the individual.

Highlights include the popular Craft Collective pavilion which focuses on quality, commercial sustainability and sophisticated crafted items. The Dion Wired interactive cooking, entertaining and lifestyle talks returns, as well as Colour Nation; the Plascon 2014 Colour Forecast. Topping the bill at Decorex Cape Town though is designer Greg Mellor in association with fabric house St Leger & Viney, who will design and curate the highly anticipated Decorex Designer Spotlight.

Decorex Cape Town is a must-visit for anyone with plans on the home décor and design front. Decorex Cape Town will delight and inspire visitors to create the lifestyle and living environment they desire. As one of the most comprehensive décor, design and lifestyle exhibitions in South Africa visitors can expect everything from fine home finishes to beautiful décor accessories, bathroom, appliance, garden and kitchen findings all under one roof.

The exhibition takes place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre between 25th and 28th April 2014. Tickets are R75 for adults, R65 for pensioners and students and R12 for children under 12 years old.
