I went to the Decorex exhibition this weekend, on Saturday at the Cape Town International Convention Center and I wasn't really blown away. There was nothing new, more of what last year and the previous year presented, was kinda disappointing, but then again I didn't have to pay for it so i guess i shouldnt be complaining, and it wasn't bad by a long shot, the lack of creativity was baffling. For those of you that don't know about this exhibition, read on for a blurb about the show. Decorex SA 2009 brings you the ‘New Fusion’: of modern & focused. Urban & rural. The designed & the discovered. The exotic & close to home. The linear & the lustrous. The organic & the ornate. The world is not new to cross-cultural influences. East has been meeting West on the trade winds for centuries. Yet, never before has the fusing process been so intense, nor the sources of inspiration so truly global. Entering its 11th year, Decorex Cape Town brings you a unique blend of the emerging & the established; manufacturers & suppliers – large & small. Trade professionals & consumers can indulge in the haute & the handmade; the new simple & the avant-garde. The show promises to be a celebration of Cape Town’s most delicate & daring spaces by talented style shapers, trend makers & décor creators.
