The trends for the upcoming season revolve around to the quest for well-being, meaning and alternatives. They focus on everyday things, handmade items, sustainability and future-proof design.


Modest regenerations

This trend stands for a clear, contemporary concept of living space, combining well established ideas with new ones. The preferred materials are wood, stone, concrete, ceramics, bamboo and cast iron – either glazed or enamelled – as well as linen and wool, in natural colours.



Colourful intentions

Bright colours, powerful patterns, dynamism and vitality. Recycling, upcycling and the mixed use of materials are backed up by an ethical approach, ensuring that products are not just impressive, but also sustainable. Recycled plastic, metal, wood and textiles are presented in chequered patterns, stripes and decorative borders.



Technological emotions

Visionary, sophisticated and sensitive at the same time. New technologies have resulted in designs that appeal to the emotions, with unusual combinations of materials and products.





Opulent narrations

This is a bold trend with a penchant for eccentricity and historical references. This picturesque look is characterised by precious oriental materials and a love of sumptuous details.
