Yesterday saw the opening of Decorex at Royal Hospital Chelsea and will run until Wednesday. Decorex is another major date on the design calender, in particular design professionals. This is an interior designers paradise with 300 exhibitors sharing the latest and future trends in the interiors world.
From small acorns great oaks grow and this is definately the case with Decorex. Back in 1978 just 38 companies exhibited at the first ever Decorex in the Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square, London and was an instant success. The exhibition has steadily grown over the years and is now hosted in the Royal Hospital Chelsea. All exhibitors are hand picked to ensure that there is an eclectic mix of innovative, inspirational and high quality products, enabling interior designers, retail buyers and hotel and contract specifiers to see the very best available in the world of interiors.
Several years ago I was lucky enough to be involved in preparing for a stand at Decorex in my role as Marketing Assistant at Ramm, Son & Crocker. Stress levels were high as we prepared items for our stand in the High Wycombe offices whilst also liasing with our design studios in Chelsea Harbour. Yet to be involved in such a prestigious event in the interior design calender more than made up for the long days.
