It is that time of year again, when over 400 luxury interior brands are hand-selected to display their range of luxury products at this year’s Decorex International, held at Syon House in London. Discovering the future of luxury is the theme of this year’s exhibit that brings another exciting, innovative exhibition this September to kick of the start of London Design Festival.
If you haven’t already, then make sure you get a chance to visit the exhibit that runs from 20-23 September to see a host of new exhibitors and luxurious designs from an extensive range of exhibitors. With Decorex in full swing, we thought we’d share a few of our top exhibitor stands you should definitely go pay a visit to at this year’s Decorex International.
Temple & Ivy at this year’s Decorex International: Stand J19
We adore the exquisite range of hand-crafted creations from British brand, Temple & Ivy. Designers Nicky Boulton and Susan Neville have designed each glamorous, feathered creation to add a sense of fun and whimsy to any room. Combining both traditional sculptural elements and modern materials, each distinct style is sculpted and forged in Somerset, using traditional cold cast bronze resin and carbon fibre.
Whilst the shades drawer inspiration from a range of exotic birds they saw whilst travelling through Africa, they spent several months in Kenya and Zimbabwe, photographing and tracking birds in order to curate their range of exotic products. From flamingoes to purple Gallinules, each statement lamp is custom made to suit a client’s colour scheme. Be sure to check out their amazing creations at stand J19.
Curiousa & Curiousa at this year’s Decorex International: Stand J36
Another one of our favourites that we’d recommend seeing at this year’s show is the beautiful, bespoke, hand-blown creations from Curiousa & Curiousa. Based in Derbyshire, founder Esther Patterson works with local carpenters, fabricators, photographers and glass blowers to create her stunning, free-blown glass and bone china lighting.
Launching her range of bespoke lighting at Design Week at Tent London back in 2010, her wonderful range of luxury lights have since been installed at Liberty London, Royal Albert Hall London, Harvey Nichols Fifth Floor Cafe and in Jamie Oliver Restaurants, and last year she won the Dulux Colour Award 2014. Esther’s colourful range of designs are definitely worth seeing at this year’s event, so make sure to visit stand J36.
iDOGI Group at this year’s Decorex International: Stand F24
Manufactured in Italy, the dramatically oversized, custom-made chandeliers by iDOGI Group are an exquisite show stopper at this year’s exhibit. Demonstrating the famous Murano master glassmakers techniques who made each piece by hand, each of their custom-made, glamorous chandeliers is designed and created through intensive collaboration with architects, project managers and interior designers to ensure all aspects of a project have been considered. Check out their awe-inspiring, oversized creations at stand F24 at this year’s Decorex.
Pooky Lighting Limited at this year’s Decorex International: Stand E44
Pooky‘s range of beautiful, decorative lighting has been a crowd-pleaser at this year’s exhibit, winning them the title of best newcomer stand 2015. Not only are their range of pendants, lamps and vibrant shades eye-catching, their quirky stand is too. The stand has been transformed into a 3D sketched, cartoon-esque living room plan, complete with hand-drawn, 3D-looking furniture. It is the perfect setting to showcase their fun range of lighting, definitely worth stopping by to see them at stand E44.
Mineheart at this year’s Decorex International: Stand ST2
Not only do Mineheart have a fabulous collection of statement lighting, they also have a great selection of quirky rugs, wallpaper, furniture & home accessories that demonstrate their love for traditional products with a playful, modern edge.
The King Edison Pendant lamps on display have drawn a lot attention at this year’s show, and are definitely one of our favourites, as are their industrial wallpaper backdrop and the eye-catching display of chintzy, china plates with an urban, graffiti edge. Their stand is well worth a visit for those of you who love playful, daring design or traditional pieces re-imagined with an added dose of eccentricity! See Mineheart at stand ST2.
