The 2017 ECR House & Garden Show introduces a fresh partnership with KAPOW, the design and dcor industrys independent networking organization.
Headed by Interior designers Jennifer Jones and Caron Mitchell, KAPOW aims to tackle the misconception that interior design and decorating is not accessible to the everyday home owner.
Central to the project at this years ECR House & Garden Show is the KAPOW Designer Caf presented by Dulux, where invited decorators and interior designers each partner with fabric houses to create seven different cameo stands. Visitors will be inspired by KAPOW designers interpretation of the latest trends, alongside daily talks and launches of the seasons current fabric ranges.
The idea that designers cost the home owner more than retail shopping is a myth, said Jennifer Jones, interior designer and KAPOW committee chairperson. By offering direct access to top designers, well be connecting show visitors with extensive international and local products, not to mention the invaluable advice and input that a designer offers.
