3 Reasons to Visit Us at Design Joburg

Taking place at the Sandton Convention Centre between 25 and 27 May 2018, Design Joburg celebrates the leaders in decor and design. This exciting expo is now in its second year. The very first inaugural event saw thousands of decor and design enthusiasts getting together to enjoy a world-class showcase of current trends.

3 Reasons to Visit Us at Design Joburg

This year’s Design Joburg expo is set to be no less of a success, with plenty to look forward to over the course of the event. VOX will be there, with bells on, as we showcase our very own Lori study and share our expert tips on how to create an inviting home office.

Why Visit Us at Design Joburg This Year?

What makes the 2018 Design Joburg expo worth a visit? For starters, here are some of the things that you can look forward to at this year’s event…

1/ Cutting-edge design.

This event is all about cutting-edge interior design, featuring a wide range of exhibitors and shows over the course of the event. Whether you consider yourself a design connoisseur or you simply love beautifully furnished rooms, this event is a must-visit for anyone with an appreciation for beautiful interiors. Highlights at this year’s event include Rooms on View, a show-within-a-show that brings to life incredible room designs; CoLabs, which pair up leading architects and designers and plenty more besides.

2/ Decor inspiration.

You’ll also be able to find a wide range of inspiration from room to room. VOX will be showcasing our highly sought-after Lori home office, which offers a contemporary look that is rooted in functional design. This range includes a streamlined desk, along with a set of bookcases that allow you to mix and match to suit your needs. Quirky details such as the Lori kennel add plenty of charm, while high-quality construction and sleek shapes make this study set as beautiful as it is practical.

3/ Current trends.

Stay au fait with the latest and greatest trends in colour, decor, design and style, to ensure that your home is always on trend. Home expos are always a rewarding way to stay abreast of the trends that are shaping the design industry on a global scale. Although we do not believe in blindly following trends, we do believe that staying on track of global design influences is one of the best ways to stay inspired.

Now that you have a better idea of what to expect from this year’s event, we hope that we will see you there! Tickets to the expo cost between R80 and R120 via Webtickets. Kids under 12 get in for free. The expo will run from 10h00 to 18h00 on Friday 25 May and Saturday 26 May 2018, wrapping up at 17h00 on the final day of the show, Sunday 27 May 2018.

Furnishing Your Studio with the Lori Collection

With its modern design and space-saving efficiency, the Lori Collection offers the ideal choice for studio apartments. This versatile range features contemporary pieces that will easily adapt to your needs. Featuring high-quality laminate finishes in white and charcoal, along with warm touches of wood, this range also adapts to your decor style, working well in minimal, Scandinavian-style, and functional, gender-neutral apartments.

Whether you are moving into your very first studio or planning to revamp your current space, the Lori Collection is a great way to maximise your space to suit your style. Keep reading to find out how to enhance your studio with this collection from VOX.

How to Enhance Your Studio With the Lori Collection

Some of the ways that the Lori Collection helps you create the perfect studio include the following:

Clean lines.

Furnishing Your Studio with the Lori Collection - Clean Lines

One of the biggest challenges in furnishing a studio is getting the most from every bit of available space. Floor space is almost always at a premium, and bulky furniture can all too often take up precious space. Thanks to its clean lines that allow you to use wall space and corners, the Lori range keeps things tidy without getting in the way. Look for tall bookcases and shelving units that use space wisely.

Smart storage.

You can also use tall shelves to create zones within your studio. This will allow you to create a study area, negating the need for a separate office. If you invest in smart storage solutions such as boxes, pedestals and even pet kennels that can be easily kept out of the way, you will further save space. Mixing and matching different bookshelves is the simplest ways to create storage that meets your needs.

Reduced clutter.

Furnishing Your Studio with the Lori Collection - Reduce Clutter

Another advantage of the Lori range is that it offers flexible storage that keeps surface clutter to a minimum. A major challenge in studio apartments is keeping your small space tidy. Too much surface clutter can quickly make the room appear smaller and more cramped. Look for coffee tables that have secret compartments, and other storage solutions that offer ample drawers and cable storage. This allows you to keep your precious goods within easy reach, without adding to the clutter.

Choosing a few signature pieces that can adapt to the look and style of your studio will further help to create a seamless apartment. That way, you can change up your decor without the need for a full studio makeover. View the full Lori Collection to start planning your dream studio.
