Decorex, Africa’s largest decor, design and lifestyle exhibition portfolio will extend the continent’s characteristics on global style. The African continent is positioning itself as a global style icon, fusing the influences of international trend-makers with the unique colour and vibrancy that characterises its people and cultures. The impact of this colourful continent on the 2019 lifestyle trends will be brought home through the features and products showcasing at the 2019 Decorex SA. Consisting of Decorex Durban, Decorex Cape Town and Decorex Joburg, this year’s much-anticipated theme ‘Designing for Africa – feels like home’ encapsulates the re-birth of the African style powerhouse.

All three shows will reflect the unique African essence of the individual province, with these varied styles all grounded by one undeniable fact – this is home.” ~Sian Cullingworth, Portfolio Director at Reed Exhibitions.
