Yesterday, we visited Decorex International. Held in the grounds of Syon House, at the start of the London Design Festival, Decorex presents a discovery trail of the future of luxury design. Here’s a summary of our highlights at the show, clockwise from top left:
The Midcentury Made Modern Collection by Galapagos Furniture, featuring fabrics by Kirkby design. Place, Pride, Provenance and People are at the heart of Galapagos Designs, "It all starts with Place. Our furniture is built right here in Britain, lovingly crafted by our team of talented makers."
Bethan Gray Collection is an exquisite show of detail, tactile textures, pure lines and luxurious materials. Read more about Bethan's work on her website, "Her skill in combining cutting edge design technology with a deep knowledge of the values of traditional craftsmanship resonates across cultures."
Gainsborough presented a stunning display of coloured silk threads and jacquard weave design - they have been creating Fabrics of Distinction since 1903.
Nick Webb showcased the intricate skill of wood carving in the centre of the show, and a stunning display of hand-carved pieces.
Other highlights included beautiful lighting by Atelier Alain Ellonz, skilfully crafted Y-Table collection by Reda Amalou Design, and delicately hand-woven monofilament, cotton and iridescent threads by Rita Parniczky whose artwork explores the passage of light through translucent materials.
