NEIL STEVENSON TO JOIN PANEL DISCUSSION AT DECOREX 2016
Bespoke furniture designer, Neil Stevenson of NEJ Stevenson, will be joining a lively and thought-provoking panel discussion as part of the much-anticipated seminar programme at luxury interiors trade show Decorex International, which runs from 18-21 September.
Neil is one of an exciting line-up of design industry experts, including interior designer Staffan Tollgard and textile designer Margo Selby, who will make up the panel. They will be discussing “The Design Journey: How tradition, custom and culture influences the evolution of luxury design”. Panellists will share their own creative influences and experiences of the design journey, and explore how this relates to their own interpretation of luxury design. The discussion will be chaired by President of the British Institute of Interior Design (BIID) Susie Rumbold and is set to take place at the Decorex seminar theatre on 20th September at 11am.
Now in its 39th year, Decorex has become a key feature of the London Design Festival and is a must-visit for design professionals and those passionate about luxury design. The four-day event is returning to historic Syon Park, with 400 exhibitors launching new collections.
The theme of this year’s show is ‘The Roots of Design’ which will explore the roots and routes of design; considering the origins of design, the processes involved and examining the influences that have challenged its DNA. A full programme of talks and guest lectures will take place every day of the show at the Decorex seminar theatre.
Neil Stevenson, Founder and Managing Director of NEJ Stevenson comments:
“I’m delighted to be joining such an esteemed panel and am very much looking forward to sharing some of my own creative influences and cultural inspiration as we discuss the design journey. It looks set to be an engaging and informative discussion.”
