Design and Décor Lab sets the pulse at Decorex 2018

What does décor and music have in common? At first glance, nothing. But this didn’t stop Decorex – Africa’s premium design exhibition – from announcing ‘Rhythm of Life’ as its 2018 theme.

“When conceptualising this year’s theme, we focused on what influences trends within the industry,” explained Sian Cullingworth, portfolio director: Design, Lifestyle and Retail Exhibitions.

From 8 to 12 August, visitors at this grandiose affair were treated to a variety of globally influenced designs and trends which have been localised to suit the African home. Interior designers, retailers and manufacturers featured colour forecasts, emerging product finishes, future fabric and industry themes to give each of its guests the chance to discover their own unique style.

On point, as always, DDL proved their capacity to meet Decorex’s international décor standards by combining all the right colours, designs and fabrics in a spring-inspired interpretation of this year’s theme.

“Our stand showcased how the right fabric selection with design elements that can give any home a look to be proud of” says Ridwaan, Head Designer at DDL.

DDL displayed contemporary luxury in a meticulously designed stand with striking shades of chartreuse, yellows and greens. Glass décor accessories were used to offset the perfectly matched rich velvet and cotton fabric textures, showing DDL’s speciality in luxury interior design and decorating.

With many saying that their stand was an outstanding presentation of modern design, DDL says that their main goal was to create an inspired space that shows their ability to turn any house into a luxurious home.
