Decorex Johannesburg – inspiration delights

Each year Decorex puts on a show filled with visual delights and each year we think that they have reached a pinnacle, but with every new show they prove us wrong.

Decorex Johannesburg, on from the 8th-12th of August 2012, is setting out to blow away any other previous years with a bumper packed exhibition filled with design inspiration, the latest in home technology and even fashion.

Apart from the daily talks in the Plascon Inspiration Theatre, Plascon is also revealing this year’s hottest colour trends in a very unique way. Each day throughout the show you will be able to see local fashion designers such as Tiaan Nagel, Fundudzi by Craig Jacobs, Lunar, and Anisa Mpungwe from Loin Cloth and Ashes.

They have all interpreted this year’s hot colour in their designs and will showcase them at the Plascon Trend House between Halls 2 and 3.

Plascon Colour Manager Anne Roselt doesn’t want to reveal what the colour is just yet but she says that the keyword is “balance.” Getting away from all the stress of daily life and entering into a home where there is balance with splashes of colour.

Another big attraction at this year’s Decorex is the incorporation of the “man caves”

The Man Caves, now sponsored by Mercedes-Benz, was a hugely successful feature at Decorex Durban and Cape Town earlier this year, has now come to Joburg with some of the city’s leading décor minds creating the ultimate boy zones.

This is do-good design at its finest as – each decorator is teamed up with a celebrity to raise funds for the charity of their choice.

In Cape Town Bob Skinstadt and his brother Dan took top honours by raising more than R10 000 with their man cave designed by Aidan Bennetts Designs. In Durban popular Sharks rugby player Ryan Kankowski’s charity came out tops. Decorex SA will top up the winner’s charity account with another R10 000.

The Mercedes-Benz Man Caves will be situated in the link between Halls 2 and 3 so be sure to go and vote for your favourite at Decorex Joburg.
The exciting line up for the Mercedes-Benz Man Caves at Decorex Joburg looks like this:

Fusion junkie Adam Levin of Imagine Nation is creating a quirky “cabinet of curiosities on
acid” for All Access presenter Jason Greer. The queen of contemporary style Heidi Arenstein is behind the smoky, sexy TV lounge for Bob Mabena of Kaya FM. Ockert Snyman of Jacket Interiors is making a modern library for gentleman actor Tumiso Masha. And last but not least, we can’t wait to see what the mistress of modernism, Lee-Ann Bell of Mezzanine Interiors, is going to do for Kaya drive time Mo-G.

All this will leave you feeling slightly hungry and parched, but never fear as there is more than enough stylishly designed little “café’s” littered around the halls so you can rest your feet and gear up for the rest of the adventure.

So what are you waiting for?

Visit Decorex at Gallagher Estate in Midrand now, tickets are priced at R75 and the show will be open from 09:00 – 18:00
