I attended Decorex 2023 today at Olympia London.
Decorex is one of my favourite London design Fairs . It is always so full of inspiration and it’s a great place to discover new trends.
I thought I’d just do a quick run through of my favourite finds.
( Image above) Walnut and straw marquetry matchboxes designed in collaboration with K&H Design for No Straight Lines at Kim Jordan Furniture .
Imperialis marquetry wood wall coverings from Omexco. Wood veneer against a gilded backdrop. This is a brilliant way of creating a feature wall, and instantly makes a room look elegant and high end.
Raffia wall covering from Èlitis London.
Another great idea for a luxurious feature wall and such a beautiful design and texture too. Like a piece of art.
Élitis is a French brand and they stock beautiful textiles and fabrics. The fabrics here compliment the raffia wall well.
I am currently looking for new stair runners for my London home, and these colourful patterned ones by Sophie Cooney really fit the bill.
It’s difficult to find beautiful garden or conservatory furniture, and this chair by Charles Orchard is so pretty.
Rattan is so on trend at the moment.
I spotted quite a few large Rattan vessels for plants at Paris Design week, and am so pleased that we can buy similar in the UK too. This one is from Charles Orchard too.
Curvy natural wood mirrors are in.
I think those colourful painted or lacquered bobbin and plaited ones are now everywhere and overdone.
I prefer this understated elegance from Clockhouse furniture with its beautiful wood grain.I’ve been on the lookout for rugs for my Paris home. The textural feel of these from Vandra rug must feel so comforting and cosy to walk on. I do fancy the look of the green and brown rug pattern above.
This scalloped pouffe in Linwood fabric is divine.
Wood and craftsmanship is huge this new season.
I would rather invest in a well made and crafted piece like this cupboard by Sebastian Cox above.
It’s like an heirloom to be passed down.
I remembered when I was doing up my bathroom a few years ago, I just wanted simple pastel tiles with a beautiful hue and straight edges, so the grouting can look neat.
Walton Ceramics do these rectangular tiles in a variety of colours. I do like these green/ blue ones. They also have terracotta and pink. I’m waiting for the samples to arrive.
Stoneline’s artisanal terrazzo “Palezzo” are epoxy or cement-based.
A great material for a creative custom made floor or work surface, without the hefty price of marble.
These handmade lamps from Emma Stevenson studio were spotted at the London Design fair but they also showcased at Decorex 2023 this year.
The hand painted lampshades are very on trend. I spotted them at Amelie’s maison d’art at Paris Design week too.
Hope you have enjoyed this curate. I really enjoyed Decorex 2023 this year and am already looking forward to the next one.
You never know, I may start using some of these resources I have written about here for my London home revamp soo.
Have a gorgeous day all.
