Over the past 25 years Casa Décor has showcased latest decoration and design trends at 50 venues of impressive architectural and cultural significance, including embassies, schools, mansions and factories.
This year, the exhibition returned to its origins in 1992, taking over a majestic residential building dating to 1900, in Madrid capital’s most exclusive and luxurious area: the Los Jerónimos suburb.
Located at Antonio Maura 8, the building was classified as the most expensive, per square metre, in Madrid in 2015. A “nugget of gold”, in the words of the experts… The 25th anniversary edition of Casa Décor included speeches and round-table discussions involving leading figures in the world of interior decoration, as well as the presence of top brands and companies such as Villeroy & Boch and Gancedo.
Designer Erico Navazo created a wellness project for Villeroy & Boch (pictured above), transforming a bathroom into an intimate, comfortable and sophisticated oasis with an ocean theme. He used Artis washbasins made from TitanCream, bathroom fittings lacquered in black, rhombus-shaped ceramic wall cladding, and a free-standing Squaro Edge bath manufactured with exclusive Quaryl material. www.villeroy-boch.es
Founded in 1945, textiles specialists Gancedo have been involved in and supported each edition of Casa Décor in Madrid, and most of the editions held in Barcelona. Earlier this year Gancedo presented a new brand, “happytex”, featuring modern, moderately priced fabrics that are easy to combine. For Gancedo, the trend-setting fabric in 2017 is velvet, showcased in their “Ethnic and Artic” collection – and on display at Manuel Espejo’s restaurant area at Casa Décor.
