With 9,000+ trade visitors expected at the Melbourne Exhibition Centre from 17th – 19th July 2024, Decor + Design is Australia’s premier design trade event. We will be celebrating our 20th anniversary this year with a mix of heritage and emerging brands, including GlobeWest, Uniqwa and Satara.

The trade event is also a unique opportunity for small and emerging studios to reach interior designers and homeware/furniture retailers, allowing them to showcase their designs face-to-face and receive exposure to the most extensive design audience in the country.

A beautifully curated avenue of stands, Atelier Avenue is a dedicated area for boutique Australian-based artists and designers across decorative objects, lighting, furniture, joineries, wall & surface art, soft furnishings, and textiles.

Lisa Taylor King 

 Lisa Taylor King is an impressionist and abstract painter whose beautiful work suits many aesthetics. The talented artist layers paint, glazes, gold leaf, and other media to create arresting works of great depth, space and beauty. Her work has been regularly published, and is held nationally and internationally.

Lisa works closely with designers, often on commission pieces, to ensure her artwork complements finished spaces. Her signature works are large format, statement pieces. However, there are a range of options available, including smaller original works on paper.

We love the piece ‘Quantum Luminus’ (left). See a collection of Lisa Taylor King’s original works on Atelier Avenue at Decor + Design 2024, Stand AA1. Then keep strolling to…
