At least ten leading Western Cape designer makers will be showcasing their exquisite soft furnishings, lighting, ceramics and other home décor products at this year’s edition of Inspire. This is an exclusive furniture, design and retail exhibition (for trade buyers only) to be hosted at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Midrand from 10-12 June.

These creative enterprises have been selected by the Cape Craft + Design Institute (CCDI).

“Inspire is an ideal opportunity to match these makers of beautiful items with retailers, architects, interior decorators, designers, hotels, game lodges and corporates,” said CCDI Market Support Coordinator Doreen Hendricks.

“There is plenty of purchasing potential as numerous South and Sub-Saharan African companies are planning large projects, and they will be sourcing products for their developments.”

The current CCDI list includes Leg studios (furniture, smalls); Fabricnation (textiles); Chic Fusion (felt items); Mervyn Gers (ceramics); Master Wire and Bead Craft (bead and wire work); Frank Bohm (small furniture items); Minima (lighting and furniture); Handmade by me (soft furnishings); Douglas and Co (furniture, lighting) and Sugar and Vice (homeware and textiles).

Last year, the CCDI-linked creative enterprises made excellent new contacts at Inspire. One of the most successful was Gerhard Schoonraad of Karoo Worx, whose wooden vessels made from sisal were a hit among architects, interior decorators and game lodge owners.

This year, Inspire has brought well-known industry partners on board, such as SA Décor & Design, Designing Ways, DesignMind, The Home Channel, SA Home Owner magazine, Fast Company magazine and African Design magazine.
