Posted by Admin on Tuesday, July 11, 2023 Under: Interior Design

The SA Decor and Design Buyers' Guide is marking its 25th anniversary with a comeback in its popular print edition, proving that print is still relevant. Over the years, the publication has become known as the ultimate resource for professionals in the decor, design and interior sectors.

Revolutionizing the way buyers connect

In response to industry demand, the recently launched print edition of the Buyers' Guide has been a passion project for renowned designer and decorator Marcia Margolius, who is also the author of the acclaimed blog, "Marcia loves it" on the SA Decor and Design website. According to Margolius, the revamped Buyers' Guide has completely transformed the manner in which buyers establish connections with suppliers and service providers in the industry.

The guide doesn't just showcase suppliers - readers have the opportunity to delve into brands with the aid of vivid, full-colour photographs throughout the 504-page publication. The innovative and easy-to-use icon system enables the reader to swiftly recognize the range of products offered, accompanied by a user-friendly QR code for scanning and direct connection with suppliers.

The 25th edition of the Buyers' Guide has undergone some formatting changes and now comes in a convenient 220 x 220mm size with a durable hardcover, perfect for any coffee table. According to Ian Hurwitz, the publisher, this new size is easier to handle and has been specifically designed to accommodate the new content. 

Paving the way for change

According to Marcia, the COVID-19 pandemic may have caused disruptions in exhibitions and live shows, but it also prompted the industry to adjust to new ways of doing business. Marcia emphasizes that their website,, has become the leading platform for the decor and design industry in South Africa.
