Decorex International will make its debut at Olympia London this year, from the 6-9 October, marking an exciting new chapter in the show’s 41-year history.
Offering a showcase of the very latest in high-end design, an exceptional speaking programme and highly anticipated curated exhibitions, the annual gathering attracts the leading names in luxury interiors from across the world.
Visitors can discover the new collections and commission bespoke pieces from over 400 established brands and up-and-coming makers. Displayed will be a variety of designs from hand-painted wallpapers and bespoke furniture, to conceptual lighting and printed fabrics. Exhibitors include Arte, Beaumont & Fletcher, Officine Gullo, Rose Uniacke and The Rug Company.
New for 2019 is a boundary-pushing collaboration that takes visitors on a journey through a series of interconnecting spaces for an immersive and personalised encounter. Each area will be beautifully created by a selection of top international interior designers and overseen by John Allsopp, one of the UK’s leading architects.
The selected designers include Natalie Natalia Miyar, one of House & Garden’s Top 100 Interior Designers, who specialises in luxury residential projects worldwide. Joining her is Sam Todhunter, another of House & Garden’s prestigious Top 100, whose residential projects are recognised the world over for their fusion of luxurious eclecticism and glamorous twists on traditional design.
Sella Concept, a specialist in retail, hospitality and office interiors that has worked on spaces for clients including Google and Netflix also takes part, as does the multidisciplinary Run for the Hills – the creative design house whose interiors include musician Ellie Goulding’s home, Kricket White City and the new Tivoli cinema, bar and café in Bath.

Also in the line-up is exciting new practice These White Walls, which has recently completed its first project, an elegant design for acclaimed chef Ollie Dabbous’ Mayfair restaurant, Hide.
For 2019, Decorex will continue to nurture new talent with Foundation, a platform for the next generation of designer-makers of contemporary, bespoke furnishings. The show’s best-loved features, such as the bar and the VIP lounge, will be taken to the next level with fresh new interpretations. Other highlights will include an array of experiential feature areas that will see makers transform areas of the show floor into live workshops, as well as an inspiring seminar programme with talks from some of the industry’s key influencers. Decorex will also celebrate luxury British craft and applied arts through Future Heritage, an exhibition of some of the best emerging talents in the UK with new work created especially for the show.
