Whether you’re an interior designer looking to network or a design lover looking for inspiration, 100% Design South Africa is the place to be this August 2016. One of the highlights of this premier show, which takes place at the Gallagher Convention Centre in Joburg, is a focus on the best local and international fabrics and wallpapers, so it's ideal for anyone with a penchant for prints, colours and textures.
