This year there’s no need for your home to be governed by one specific trend or look. You don’t have to stick rigidly to crafting an entire space in Scandinavian-inspired designs or keep to the barest of minimalism. Now, homeowners have the creative freedom to combine all and any elements as they like. You can decide how to best incorporate your favourite trends into your home while remaining true to the lifestyle you want to project.

Accordingly, Lifestyle by Design is the theme of this year’s Decorex Durban, taking place over a four-day period, from 19-22 March 2020, at the Durban Exhibition Centre. Decorex Durban serves as a showcase of the infinite possibilities offered by the world of interior decor and design.

The show brings together leading decorators, designers and manufacturers to create a wealth of exciting stands and installations that are geared towards offering ideas for how to incorporate the latest trends into your own home, just as you wish.

Instagramability is indeed 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 designer alongside a local influencer.

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 will take visitors on a journey through a series of home spaces which is easily achievable and aspirational.

The Trend Installation is based on Bloom’s 2020 trend report. Here, the show’s Creative Director will highlight her top 10 trends in situ in this exciting new feature. Visitors will be able to identify the various trends as they peruse the aisles and take in all the show has to offer.

An exclusive Design Pavilion inspired by Parisian show Maison & Objet will showcase local design disciplines from home décor, interior design, architecture, and lifestyle culture and trends. Through this dynamic installation, local designers will interpret Decorex Durban’s exciting, homegrown theme ‘Lifestyle by Design’.
