It’s the 20th anniversary edition of SA Décor & Design and we speak to its founder, Marcia Margolius.
From world class designers and best in show furniture to trendy home accessories and essential suppliers, the newly released 20th anniversary edition of SA Décor & Design envelopes a wealth of interior décor and design information and ideas for homeowners, property developers and designers.
The celebratory 2017 edition of SA Décor & Design features its iconic listing of designers and suppliers, covering all aspects of property development, design, renovation and decoration. The latest Buyers’ Guide also offers exceptional design advice and ideas through editorial content included in each chapter and in the Marcia’s Solutions and Marcia Loves It! sections.
Talking about the inception of SA Décor & Design, founder Marcia Margolius notes that, as chairlady of the Guild of Interior Designers, she had numerous requests for information on sourcing décor products. “Nothing existed 20 years ago that supplied this information,” she explains.
“I contacted a publisher who loved the concept but it depended on what the market thought. I went to see the major suppliers at the time and it became clear that this was exactly what the industry needed. Almost all of them booked space and that got the ball rolling. The first issue was completed in the spare room of my parents’ house in 1997.”
Looking to the future of SA Décor & Design, Marcia highlights that the book still has its place in the industry and the digital version is also doing well. “The website and my blog – Marcia Loves It – will be the focus over the next few years as the digital explosion continues; they are huge contributors to the business,” she concludes.
