As per previous years, Plascon’s 2015 Colour Palette will be launched to the Cape Town market at Decorex 2015.The paint giant, which is co-headline sponsor of Decorex SA with Caesarstone, is set to shed its invaluable insight into the hottest hues and coolest combos which lie ahead. Plus, ideas for using funky new paint techniques that are making a big splash in 2015. Caesarstone, South Africa’s leading manufacturer and supplier of engineered stone surfaces, will also be showcasing at Decorex 2015, highlighting the latest in kitchen surface design and technology. The transitional industrial design kitchen, which will be on show, was inspired by the Caesarstone exhibit in Milan last year where its unusual length and cut-out assembly design was appraised by hundreds. Caesarstone’s stand will boast an industrial feel, inspired by the colours of concrete, acting as the ideal platform for the company’s new muted colour additions.
