According to official statistics, this year the world exhibition of furniture and decor was visited by more than 300 thousand people who came from 160 different countries to see for themselves what designers offer their customers.
So, what is important you need to know about what was happening at the exhibition, if our readers did not have a chance to visit it.
First of all, as it was noted earlier, these are the trends of furniture and decor, which will be fundamental all this year until the next exhibition.
As a year earlier, the imagination and thoughts of designers do not let go of retro motifs and vintage. This, however, is not surprising, since for several years in a row, these notes are popular in hairstyles, and in clothing and even in architecture. So if you have a family heirloom in the form of a dresser of the era of Louis, then you should take it out for everyone to be in trend this season.
In addition, it became obvious that many designers have a clear line of midcentury modern stylistics in their works – that is, elements that were popular in the 1930s and 60s of the last century in the United States of America and Europe.
With all this, some representatives in their creative search have found the opportunity to combine kitsch, futurism and elements of the past into decorative objects.
As for the color range, then natural natural tones prevailed. Perhaps the designers are finally tired of the flashy shades that were so popular before. The colors of nature – this is the favorite of the season – the noble gray stone, or deep brown woody, as well as the rich and vibrant green color, which in itself symbolizes life in all its tumult.
The materials that designers have preferred in creating their works are also mostly natural. A clear favorite can be called marble and its derivatives, this material is found in most designers in the design of the floor and walls.
Another material of the season is brass. Kitchen worktops, fittings and decor elements are offered from this metal. Note that brass is in perfect harmony with marble in the interior and looks elegant and discreet, emphasizing the influence of the main trend of this season – retro and vintage.
Continuing the vintage motifs, designers suggest using velvet, which was so valued in that era. Armchairs, chairs, sofas, couches and other items of upholstered furniture are proposed to be covered with velvet. Its deep color and texture are definitely combined with marble floors and brass elements in the interior, creating a luxurious, but at the same time sustained style.
