If the proof is in the pudding, then Decorex Cape Town was the ultimate High Tea of sensory stimulation and inspiration. The successfully reimagined and much lauded Mother City event has set a tone of eager anticipation for the Gauteng leg of the show, which brings newness and excitement to the Sandton Convention Centre from 28-31 July 2022. Think big-name brands like Samsung, Plascon, ASUS, Spier, Belgotex, Takealot, Decobella, Cosentino and more. Here’s your Decorex Joburg “how-to” on navigating this essential decor and design event!
On the Foodie front:
The Samsung Cooking Theatre
Stirring up the gourmet scene in the most stylish kitchen in Sandton, star chefs will demonstrate the flavour power of select dishes. The theatre is kitted out with the finest appliances, informed by the latest trends and is brought to life by Careline Living Spaces. Live food demos will be staged by a line-up of celeb chefs.
Bright lemony yellow in bold monochrome will beckon you to the Njano eatery created by Cassandra Twala of moea design. The striking scheme is inspired by African beadwork – here is has been vastly scaled up into an over-stated wonderland.
Trend Kitchen brought to you by Cosentino
This area gathers everything needed to elevate a kitchen – whether it’s the most creative space in the house or your home’s place of immense comfort. It is realised by Eurofit Kitchens and Cupboards using Cosentino’s slick surfacing products. Be sure to add it to your checklist.
KSA Kitchen Trend Project by Franke, PG Bison, MOT, Grass & Salvocorp
Each kitchen company has been challenged to showcase, in a trend-forward way, how melamines and laminates can be used to create high-end, sophisticated kitchen aesthetics through the use of colour, texture and material combinations.
Home is where Decorex Joburg is…

The latter received the Best Stand award at Decorex Cape Town, because it transports the viewer into a highly edited, inspiring world of artisanal glass.

The Garage of the Future
It’s 2022, you’re headed home, and as you pull up to your garage designed by architect Theo Bothma and built by Jozi Customs. You are welcomed by a cladded tunnel formed in engineered materials by Cosentino and Plascon on trend paint colours. You drive in over Quartz Carpet and park to be greeted by an aesthetic colour palette incapsulating the mood of modern living. The garage is not just for your car anymore. It is becoming a vehicle showcase and experience zone, replete with designer seating – in this case a lounging area by Donald Nxumalo Interior Design – that makes for heaven for metalheads. For the show, leading automotive design is included, and the new Audi e-tron will be on display – it’s the next level electric car.
