Now in its 25th year, Decorex SA - South Africa’s premier décor, design and lifestyle exhibition – is bringing together all the right colours, designs, fabrics and inspiration to open up a path of harmonious creativity suited to each individual’s rhythm. By channelling the demands of everyday life into a productive, embracing space, visitors will get the chance to discover their own unique style, their #rhythmoflife. Co-sponsored by Plascon and Caesarstone, the 2018 edition, which will feature in Durban, Cape Town and Joburg, will exude the captivating Rhythm of Life theme throughout all details of the exhibition.

“When conceptualising this year’s theme, we focused on what influences trends within the industry,” explained Sian Cullingworth, Portfolio Director: Design, Lifestyle and Retail Exhibitions.
“At the heart of it, it’s our lifestyles that push and dictate trends. Everything that happens in our daily lives impacts us in a number of subtle ways. The constant push and pull of work and play, the tension between our public image and private self. Our inner sense of health, prosperity and
happiness…all these are being put to the test. And the way we deal with this is by taking these outside influences, channelling them into something meaningful for us and expressing our rhythm of life in our own spaces. This allows for a harmonious life, which offers the self a sense of revival,
replenishment and relief.”

Everyone is trying to attain a sense of balance in the world but this is becoming more difficult as the demands on time, attention and space are increasing. There are always more layers being added to lifestyles, to roles in society as well as the digitisation and environmental challenges. As
a way to embrace this constant movement, we are forced to create a space that reflects our unique Rhythm of Life.

“The use of colour helps us to survive the busy city life,” said Cullingworth, expanding on the theme. “Colour is also an important determinant of trends, and a great visual way to show the convergence of our public and private lives in our own space. There is also the contrasting need to surround ourselves with nature within the urban environment, and the final desire to create a
relaxed surrounding of slow living. We constantly create spaces around us that allow us to find this inner peace and escape the demands of our lives. Who we are, what we are, what we do… all this forms our rhythm of life and this is unique to each of us. This year’s exhibition will assist visitors in discovering how nature, lighting, fabrics and décor can fuse perfectly in a myriad of different ways to create this individual rhythm.
