Casa Decor closes successfully an exceptional 2020 edition
The 55th edition of Casa Decor Madrid has closed its doors on the first weekend in July after five weeks of exhibition. This year, the state of alarm for the coronavirus pandemic forced the closure of the palace house at 21 Velazquez Street a week after Casa Decor opened on March 4.
