Find Your Dream Designs at Durban Decorex 2017

I love going to Decorex every year to see what the new designs and decor are for interiors and I can't wait to see what Plascon has done on their stand for 2017. They always have such an interesting and exciting space that showcases what can be achieved with colour. So get your cup of coffee and let's find out about this years show. Make sure to read till the end and enter the ticket giveaway.


From 18 to 21 March, visitors to this year’s Decorex Durban – co-sponsored by Plascon and Caesarstone –  are in for a feast of new décor features and enticing food in addition to the popular exhibitions that will embody the 2017 ‘Make your space your living dream’ theme.

“We are very excited to announce an all-new line-up of features at the Durban leg of Decorex this year,” said Sian Cullingworth, Portfolio Director of Decorex SA. “Decorex SA always seeks to enhance the visitors’ experience year on year which means keeping our innovative exhibitions while constantly introducing relevant, new features to this premier décor and design show.”
For the foodies there is a range of enticing options to keep the palate satisfied such as the decadent TREAT Ice-cream + Dessert Bar. Swimming in shakes, ice cream sandwiches and macaroons, visitors can find every refreshing ice cream and decadent treat conceivable. But if it’s the rich aroma of quality coffee you’re searching for then a stop at The Coffee Cup by Illy will keep you going while browsing the myriad of living dream décor.
Known for its exceptional daytime cuisine, Boiler Room Café will extend its phenomenal fair into Decorex Durban, offering fulfilling meals for people on the go. The café’s roast truck will also provide enticing rotisserie options. And, for the gin connoisseurs and those looking for superior distilled beverages, then the Craft Gin and Cocktail Bar will ensure all thirst-quenching needs are met.
The premiere KwaZulu-Natal décor and design exhibition provides creative opportunities for imaginative interior masterpieces and this year is no different. Four designers will be unleashed within the new Décor District by where they will fashion four exceptional room settings.
The Decorex Trend House reinforces Decorex SA as leaders in décor and design trends. Each room of this home scape will be transformed using relevant @Home furnishings, providing a pragmatic and visual representation of the 2017 trends.

Decorex SA is not only endorsed by Kitchen Specialists’ Association of South Africa (KSA) but they also welcome the leaders in the kitchen world, Franke, who will be showcasing four ‘Simplicity in Design’ Kitchen Trends-sponsored stands at the 2017 edition.

Such a depth of creative talent deserves to be shared which is why the 2017 Decorex Durban has introduced a fully-equipped Bloggers Lounge. It will be here that the leading décor and design trendsetters can enjoy a cup of their favourite Illy coffee while crafting inspired blog pieces for those who can’t make the annual pilgrimage.

Don't miss out on the one day only Pop Up Night Market, taking place at the Durban Exhibition Centre on Monday, 20 March from 3pm to 8pm.

Visitors will be able to enjoy an interesting range of artisanal crafts which touch on the 2017 interior design and décor trends, while sampling some of Durban’s finest cuisine in a relaxed environment.

Some of the quality lifestyle products include limited-edition furnishings, local fashion suited to the KwaZulu-Natal climate as well as vintage clothing, fabrics, jewellery, homeware, stunning arts and ceramics, tastefully recycled and repurposed items as well as a range of fun children’s toys and décor items.

The Pop Up Night Market will continue into the evening where hungry visitors will be treated to a wealth of delectable food options sure to satiate every palate. Ice cold craft beer forms the perfect accompaniment to the fulfilling meal while a top musical act creates a festive mood with some live music.

Be sure not to miss out on any of these exciting new features at Decorex Durban from 18 to 21 March 2017. Tickets are sold through and at the door.
