This year Decorex International is cel­e­brat­ing 40 years and wanted to mark the occasion by bringing together a deca­dent­ly dressed dozen interior designers to shoot a special Anniversary Campaign image cel­e­brat­ing the past, present and future of design. The group of grandees and lesser knowns gathered at the very beautiful Syon House in West London, to take their seat at the banquet table in Robert Adam’s State Dining Room. The concept behind the shoot was intended to be sumptuous and the­atri­cal and each of the designers had to assume a role. Our Creative Director, Anna, was part of it and got to put her glittery best on. The images will be rolled out across the 2017 Decorex campaign in the run up to the event in September.

Original concept for Decorex 2017

Happily lured by the prospect of donning her favourite sequins and having her hair twizzled, Anna was thrilled to be asked to take part:

“What an honour to be having fun at the table with some of the biggest names in the business. Some of the best known are leap-years ahead of me with their long-established busi­ness­es, I came to interior design later in life. But just so lovely to be recog­nised as an up and coming talent. Decorex dubbed us the “industry’s creative elite” on the day. I’ll happily drink to that, and raise a toast to the fabulous team behind me!”
