Decorex 2012

As members of the South African Institute of the Interior Design Professions, Jossi Design has once again been involved with Decorex. A stressful time leading up to the show, but fortunately the various suppliers do get involved with generous sponsorships.

This year we stepped out of our design box and went with a bold and colourful scheme. Lots of bright colours which made the result quite fun. 

Decorex is on until Sunday, 25th March, so go and have a look for yourself if you get a chance!

IID KZN Regional Meeting

The IID KZN Regional meeting took place on the 23rd February 2012 at Plaisir du Jardin on Florida Road, Durban.
The various IID Designer, Decorator and supplier members came together for this inspiring evening that was centered on ‘outdoor design’. Plaisir du Jardin is a well known supplier of outdoor furniture and accessories and their selection is absolutely amazing. With so much to choose from it can be overwhelming so we were thankful when they offered to host one of our meetings. In this way the members could view just some of the furniture and accessories on display in the showroom, sit on the chairs and enjoy the comfort of the couches and loungers.
A new twist to the evening was having the other IID supplier members present their outdoor products to those who attended the meeting. The speakers included:
• Jean-Paul Vanderhende from Plaisir du Jardin
• Gavin Manickum from Belgotex 
• Donna Plater from St. Leger and Viney 
• Debbie Schuurman from Walnut Interiors
• Henry Nel from Hertex
• Jalayne Schmahl from U&G

Thank you to these suppliers, we enjoyed every minute, it was a truly informative and fun-filled evening.

Jocelyn Jones, CEO of Jossi Design (PTY) LTD is also the Head of the IID KZN Region.  She briefly informed members of what the IID has been up to since the beginning of the year, and reminded members about the various marketing opportunities available through the IID and the benefits of their membership. Jocelyn also briefed those present on the upcoming events being organized through the IID as well as other local events that are possibly of interest to the members.


We look forward to our next meeting being held in May. The invitations to this event will be going out in April so if you are an IID Member please look out for this. If you are interested in becoming a member please visit the IID website

Inspired Design

I am completely obsessed with this building! The main elevation has almost a children's drawing quality to it - it's such a simple silhouette but then has the offset glass panels to the one side making it sophisticated and edgy. Inside, the structural bits and pieces have been carefully incorporated to give an intelligent, cohesive design solution.

This building was designed in Berlin by Stefan Braunfels Architekten.

House in Westville

We have recently completed another inspirational residential project. It was fantastic to have been involved in the process from the very beginning:  we saw the existing building being demolished; we worked with the architects on the new layouts; we designed the bathrooms; completed the ceiling and lighting layouts and chose all the finishes and fittings.

We worked on this project from the inception through to hanging the curtains, putting out the final cushions and hanging the last artwork.

We have become good friends with this client and wish this family true happiness in their new home
