This year Salone del Mobile says: “Tell the story”. The story refers to creating a pleasant atmosphere and setting up your own ideal of beauty in space. Inspiration can be found everywhere, especially in the arts, people, traveling…
Many designers have found their furniture design inspiration in the “children’s world” and have in a peculiar way transformed them into “serious” products.
The trendy color is red brown, but it is followed by other “impure colors”, rich in oxides and pigments, which emerge from the shades of turquoise, and the colors of blueberries and barley. There are also variations from red to purple.
Lighting is a very important element of the interior. The designers even go one step further to create the fourth dimension of space with lighting: activating walls, ceilings and floors, which regulate the lighting. Thus, the space becomes dynamic in the true sense of the word: through the active surfaces and dynamic changes of intensity and methods of lighting.
When it comes to materials, their range is very wide. In application, wood is still leading, and metal, glass, plastic are used in combination with wood. The use of fabric is also very popular and upholstered sofas, chairs, beds and footstools are very fashionable. They are made in the combination of materials: wood/fabric, metal/fabric or plastic/fabric.
