After a very busy few weeks since returning to the UK after our time in Australia, we are finally able to show you some of the highlights from Decor & Design show; Australia’s Number 1 Interior Design trade event. Our sold-out Trend Tours provided visitors with insightful trend information, as well as a guided translation of each trend into product design direction seen on the show floor. Our colour palette fabric sample give-a-ways (sponsored by Ultra Fabrics) proved a huge hit with the interior design visitors, and our material display tables and trend-led room sets created the perfect Instagram photo for everyone! We had a very engaging and lively experience at the exhibition with lots of positive feedback from both the exhibitors and visitors.Continue reading “Highlights from Decor & Design Show, Melbourne Australia 2019”

So many of our apparent choices in this digital age are predetermined for us – we are constantly being directed. Online recommendations steer us away from what is unrelated, unfamiliar and unexpected. This effectively edits out anything that challenges our pre-existing beliefs and interests.
The Surface Design Show takes place in February at the Business Design centre in London, they focus on interior and exterior surfaces specific to the building, architectural and interior design industries. This show is a ‘must visit’ for us; you can learn from industry professionals, network and connect with innovative and exciting materials. This immersive environment enables us to select product from new designers for future projects, we are also able to confirm our past trend prediction in real time relating to themes, materials, colours and pattern design.
Last month we made the journey to the US to work at the International Surfaces Event (TISE) in Las Vegas. This exhibition is the largest North American floor covering, stone, and tile industry event and is the premier, global marketplace for buyers, specifiers, and influencers to purchase products, gain design and trend information, and develop their business strategies.
