Exhibitors and visitors alike enjoy Decorex Cape Town 2013

Decorex Cape Town played host to over 36 000 visitors over the past weekend – proving once more that the mother city is the capital of décor and design appreciation.

Even the city’s first citizens, mayor Patricia de Lille, and Western Cape premier Helen Zille paid a visit to the show this year – both declaring how impressed they were with the décor and home innovation on display.

The focus of the show was on giving visitors ideas for turning their homes into a sanctuary – or finding their own blissful space within their home. The kitchen has to be such a place and it was fantastic to see a greater presence from the kitchen industry at the show this year with four kitchen companies exhibiting.

Decorex SA recently announced its support for World Design Capital 2014, and World Design Capital 2014 chief Alayne Reesburg was the guest speaker at the awards evening and she called on all members of the Decorex Cape Town community to embrace the World Design Capital by submitting projects for inclusion on the calendar. She also applauded the Cape Town décor community for having made it through tough recessionary times.

Congratulations to KSA members who won prizes for their stands:
- Cocomosaic / Panda Bamboo - the most eco-friendly stand
- Caesarstone – excellence award
- Niemann SA laminated boards and accessories – excellence award

Congratulations to Maik Kobald who was the winner of the Whirlpool JetChef microwave oven in the KSA Whirlpool lucky drawer.
