The show looks to demonstrate the latest trends for the trade by bringing them to life within the key feature stands at the show. Here are a few of the must-see trend features at Decorex Durban.


Take a snap | Insta-Interiors

You’d have to be living under a rock not to know that Instagrammability is a factor in interior design these days. The success of a space in this hyper visual age is often measured by how photographable it is – its aesthetic x-factor, if you will. Always in step with what’s current, Decorex is excited to introduce Insta-Interiors – a new feature and visual feast that will pinpoint global trends for 2020. These trends include New Nordic, Afro/Tribal Meets European, Modern Chinoiserie, Contemporary Organic or Neon, via dynamic roomsets designed to be captured and shared. Each room will reflect the lifestyle of a Durbanite through the use of popular trends which will be conceptualised by a different interior designer alongside a local influencer.


Journey Home | Mobelli Furniture’s Urban Living by Design

Furniture and interior design brand Mobelli will spearhead the Urban Living by Design stand also known as the ‘Trend House’, an inspiring home-style array of room settings conceived by Decorex Durban’s very own Creative Director Anita Bloom. Designed to reflect both the unique Durban lifestyle as well as the show’s theme ‘Lifestyle by Design’, this feature stand consists of a series of aspirational spaces.


Trend Installation | 2020

Bloom will highlight her top 10 trends – taken from her 2020 trend report – in situ in this exciting new feature. Visitors will be able to conceptualize and identify the various trends as they peruse the aisles and take in all the show has to offer.


Maison & Objet-Inspired Pavilion

This exclusive Design Pavilion will showcase design disciplines ranging from home décor to interior design, architecture, lifestyle and culture. Decorex Africa is part of the Reed Exhibitions stable, the organisers of the globally renowned Maison & Objet décor trade show in Paris, France – hence the connection.
