Decor + Design & AIFF 2022

Australasia’s only truly 360-degree event for the interiors and furniture industry, Decor + Design & the Australian International Furniture Fair (AIFF) is an important annual destination for retail chains, independent retailers, commercial buyers, and designers. Leading exhibitors will showcase indoor and outdoor furniture, soft furnishings, lighting, kitchen and bathroom hardware, textiles and art.

In 2023, the show will feel different.

We want to inspire people in how they think about design – how they buy and how they connect.

For the first time, the show will be open later on its first day, Thursday 13th July, with extended hours until 7pm for the industry to network together over drinks, giving exhibitors the opportunity to invite key clients.

We will elevate the many different faces of Australian Design.

The 19th edition will provide a platform for Australian Made and First Nations design collectives. The VIVID Design Awards will also nurture the brightest emerging talent in design.

In 2023, the show will look different.

Our exhibitors will elevate the show’s aesthetics through thoughtful curation and standout collections. James Treble will lead tours around a new Kitchens and Bathrooms focus area, helping visitors optimise their visit. We will also place an emphasis on the Circular Economy, with a new Green Design Hub bursting with ideas and innovative recycled materials.

High-profile design personalities will present Inspirational Showcases and Practical Design Tools at the Decor + Design Seminar Series, inspiring attendees and also finding new ways to address the design problems facing the world today.

The colour palette for the show will be joyful and inspiring, taken from the ‘Revive’ palette by Dulux, our 2023 Colour Partner. The Decor + Design and Australian International Furniture Fair (AIFF) logos feature the soft blue of Dulux’s ‘Breezy Half’, juxtaposed against the white of ‘Lexicon Quarter’. These will also be the key colours on display at the event in July 2023.
