Homestyle PR gets inspired at Decorex International

For those who work in the world of interior design the month of September is one of the busiest and most inspiring times of the year. Recently, the capital has been buzzing with energy as London’s Design Festival 2017 took over the city and we were thrilled to be a part of it.

We always look forward to seeing what interior trends are going to emerge and the hot new talent which is set to bring the design arena alive. One of our highlights was visiting the 40th edition of Decorex International (17-20 September 2017) which was held at the picturesque Syon Park, south west London – the go-to destination for interior design professionals on the hunt for the finest and most coveted luxury products from new, emerging and established talent.

Decorex International

Attracting people from around the globe, this exhilarating event showcases trend-setting products and colour direction from over 400 exhibitors and this year’s show didn’t disappoint with plenty of opulence, drama and creative flair!

Contemporary designs, marble textures, bold prints and a vivid colour palette of bright hues intertwined with a backdrop of muted tones, proved that fabric patterns are still very much a statement. Colourful pops of lighting also left us wanting to invest in striking pendant chandeliers that will create a marvellous centrepiece to any home.

One of the stand-out presentations for us was the entrance installation; a circular rotating display which featured four different designers. Cleverly bringing together a mix of fashion, floristry and interior design, you couldn’t help but be captivated by its visual appeal. The garden table surrounded by an amazing wave of pretty flowers and the display by Elgio Studio, showcasing dinner at sunset, was a fantastic start to the event that you wouldn’t want to forget.

The champagne bar, designed by Shalini Mirsa and built by Barr Joinery, was another eye-catching focal point of Decorex 2017 for Homestyle PR. Surrounded by oriental screens that featured wallpaper from de Gournay, the design was inspired by The Great Exhibition opened by Queen Victoria in 1851.

Based on paintings, adverts and drawings from that time, we thought the central Parrot Fountain chandelier designed by Erfre for Clartes added a sumptuous finishing touch as did the luxe, velvet cocktail chairs and leather ottomans. The champagne went down a treat too!
