Decorex is a trade show for design professionals, situated in the South Grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea. Stuffed with high end, luxury brands and inspiring seminars it’s a must for the design calendar.
I visited on Sunday, shattered after a week of work and attending design events for London Design Week but that was all forgotten as soon as I got there and met up with a few friends. I had a fabulous day soaking it all up, attending lectures and catching up over a delicious afternoon tea at Abigail’s Tea Room.
This impressive sculpture made from cast furniture by Christoper Guy was at the centre of the exhibition, accentuated by the patterns of fallen leaves on the roof of the marquee.
My favourite product of the show was this hand knotted rug, Erased Heritage – Tarbiz Canal Aerial by Jan Kath for Front. The lighter ‘erased’ pile was longer and softer than the rest of the rug, giving it a lovely depth and texture.

After those rather monochrome shots, a dash of neon on the Byron & Byron stand with the launch of their new curtain pole collection.
and more colour on the imaginitive display at Little Greene.
