There is little wonder why this show, which is part of the London Design Festival 2015, is so popular and is in its thirty-eighth year.  It is the only one of this kind in the UK that caters for the luxury interiors market and there are nearly four hundred exhibitors taking part. I thought that I would mention these two rather special ones.

The Odd Chair Company - Soane chair

The first is luxury furniture inspired by the works of the celebrated 18th century neo-classical architects Robert and James Adam which is being shown by the Sir John Soane Museum.  This is a fitting new development as the Museum holds over eight thousand Adam drawings and the exciting range will include chairs, chimneypieces, lights, murals, wallpaper, stands and plinths. This introductory display is curated by the famous interior designer David Mlinaric and the decorative arts expert Joanna Bird (www.inspiredbysoane.com ). Don’t forget the Adam interiors of nearby Syon Park House.

One of the great exhibits at last year’s Decorex was the new Future Heritage feature celebrating the best of collectable British craft and I am truly delighted that it returns this year.  It is best summed up by its curator Corinne Julius who says “The inaugural Future Heritage at Decorex 2014 proved to be extremely popular with visitors and successful for the makers. I am so excited to be curating Future Heritage that will once again showcase the works of some of the country’s most inspiring makers, designers and artists. I am thrilled to be able to show their work and introduce them to Decorex visitors. I can only hope that they find them as stimulating and inspiring as I do.”
