Decor + Design returns to Melbourne for the 16th year this July with an impressive array of exhibitors, events, experiences and local and international speakers. And when it comes to all-important trends, attendees can expect to see the latest in furniture, lighting, textiles, kitchenware, bathware, workspace design and contemporary art all in one engaging space.
“We’re ecstatic to host a dynamic selection of industry heavyweights to share their invaluable knowledge and experiences at this year’s show. Celebrating our 16th year, we are also pleased to welcome 350 exhibitors in 2019. Many longterm and exciting new exhibitors will be showcasing classic and contemporary styles and launching new products too,” says the event’s director, Chris May.
Leading the speaking line-up (and always popular International Seminar Series), will be keynote speakers and super successful celebrity design duo Cortney and Robert Novogratz. With over 20 years’ experience designing and developing unique properties in New York, Los Angeles and beyond they will no doubt bring a unique perspective to the event.
The local speaking line-up is rather exciting too with an array of Aussie design luminaries set to hit the stage. From interior stylist and style director for Belle magazine Steve Cordony to interior designer, presenter and style writer James Treble to interior designer Diane Bergeron and stylists Sibella Court, Megan Morton and Julia Green.
Just as in past years, UK trend forecasters Victoria Redshaw and Phil Pong from Scarlet Opus will return for another year with their uber-popular Trend Tours where designers, retailers and stylists will be taken on a tour of the showroom floor to highlight 2019’s most popular textile and colour trends. The Trend Hub and the Trends Champagne Lounge will also feature alongside the Homemade exhibition where independent Australian studios will exhibit.
Décor + Design will run alongside the Australian International Furniture Fair (AIFF), Australia’s largest furniture industry buying and networking destination.
