Casa Decor in Madrid

Bold expression of futuristic trends

When Casa Decor held its first exhibition in 1992, the slogan chosen to promote the initiative reflected the organisation’s ambitious objectives. “What are 43 interior decorators doing locked up in a convent? Decoration creates miracles.”

That inaugural exhibition was held in a former convent in Calle General Oraá in Madrid, and completely raised the bar on the “timid” world of decoration in the 1990s – at first causing astonishment but later generating great expectations. The leading interior decorators of the time took part in the  project, which involved decorating each room of the building.

Over the past 20 years Casa Decor has became a platform for open and free expression, for interior designers, decorators, architects, landscapers and artists… professionals who have the opportunity of developing their projects at Casa Decor with no constraints.

The exhibition’s singularity is based not only on its prestige as one of Europe’s premier decoration, design and architecture showcases, but also the widely varied and highly original options it highlights for those seeking inspiration for their home décor – comfortable, cosy, functional, imaginative and sustainable.

An exclusive exhibition featuring top industry professionals and leading brands, Casa Decor takes over one of Madrid or Barcelona’s emblematic or historic buildings, carries out a significant rehabilitation and, for one month, presents 50 projects to a select public.

The building chosen for the latest edition was the former home of the British Embassy for 40 years, in Calle Fernando El Santo in the exclusive suburb of Almagro. Built in 1966, its 3,900 square metres are circular shaped around an enormous central courtyard featuring an

alabaster fountain. The exterior sheathing is grey granite with geometrically-lined windows that form a neo-classical border.

As the projects featured here demonstrate in richly evocative and eclectic style, Casa Decor 2013 showcased trends in the vanguard of decoration, as well as innovative materials and pacesetting construction solutions – a veritable home of the future.
