While in 2016 Rose Quartz and Serenity Blue suggested an air of tranquillity, for 2017 the Design world has chosen brilliant light green as the colour of the year. It’s a colour that evokes a feeling of rebirth, strength and energy.
Design, home living, lifestyle, decoration: all this in a January full of exhibitions and events, first at Cologne with Imm-Cologne and then in Paris at the Maison & Object fair; to be followed by the Milan Furniture Fair in April.
The first appointment of 2017 bodes well for the world of design, with the Cologne event attracting over 1,300 exhibitors. Italian Design was represented with 130 exhibitors, including displays in the Living Kitchen area by 34 globally famous brands. Operators in the sector had the chance to explore all that is new in the furniture industry: furniture, lighting, decorative objects, fabrics, coverings, outdoor living, etc.
After Cologne came another unmissable appointment for all design enthusiasts: the Maison & Objet Fair in Paris. Dedicated to trends in the home, the exhibition is divided into three sections: maison (for interiors), objet (accessories and decorative objects) and influences (luxury furniture and the latest fashions).
The theme for 2017 is “Silence”.
In today’s society with its excessive hyperactivity, the home is seen as a refuge, a place to restore our calm and serenity. In this way, we can discover the beauty of the essential in those objects that we have in our homes, with a focus on simplicity, transparency and ethereal tones.
