Designer Living Pavilion - Hall 8
A longstanding and iconic feature of the Auckland Home Show is the Designer Living Pavilion where you’ll find all the inspirational products and advice you need to transform your home into a show home.
Simon Pritchett, of Marble & Lemon Interiors, is the man behind the scenes organising the fabulous showcase of interior products, which takes up the majority of space in Hall 8.
See who’s involved in the Designer Living Pavilion:
Audio Video Designs
Audio Video Designs will showcase the Luxsound wireless LightSpeaker system, which will be available at the show special of $599. This will include two LightSpeakers, the controller and RF hand-held remote control.
Grow your system with the Luxsound outdoor wireless battery controlled rock.
DecoGlaze glass splashbacks will release a product that is new to New Zealand. For two years, the firm has been testing a system which will allow printing directly onto glass.
In the past, the process was to print onto a film which was then applied to the glass – and this had its boundaries. Now, with its new Impression series, DecoGlaze can print and use this product as a splashback behind a gas hob.

We are showcasing some of the latest tile trends from Europe. These trends include large format porcelain tiles and tiles manufactured using the latest inkjet printing technologies. Digital printing allows for the reproduction of realistic stone and wood effects on tile surfaces, so customers today can get stone and wood looks with all the easy maintenance and installation of porcelain tile.
A hot range is the Velvet collection, a large 800mm x 800mm tile which replicates venetian stone. There is high variation of colour and pattern between each tile, so when laid it looks exactly like natural stone.
Other popular natural stone look ranges we will be showcasing include the Bernini range, which has the look of silver marble, and Calacata, which has a classic white marble look.
Also very popular amongst homeowners, designers and architects is our Graffiti range, which has an urban industrial design. Inspired by modern urbanism, this tile has a chic concrete look, and is available in a monotone palette of warm and cool tones.

With the summer months approaching wouldn’t it be great to create a cool shady haven, enabling you to use your
outdoor area all year round. Fresco Shades canopies are great for creating an outdoor room. By enclosing the sides, you can live and entertain outside even when it’s raining or windy. With the addition of a patio heater, you can even BBQ outside in winter!
Fresco Shades canopies are custom designed to suit your situation, and there are a number of different styles to pick from both for the awning itself, and the optional side curtains.
Take the time to talk to these and other experts – and find out how you can bring a little luxury into your home with the wealth of colour, texture, design and technology on show at the Designer Liiving Pavilion, in Hall 8.
