Design Destination: International Bloggers Gather For Design Fair Ambiente 2015 FrankfurtAuthor:Jennifer Mehditash
Modenus unites a group of international bloggers to cover the world’s largest Interior Design Trade Show, Ambiente, in Frankfurt this past February and our Orange County Editor at Large, Jennifer Mehditash, was there to take part of this inaugural BlogTour.
With over 4,800 exhibitors from across the globe, this trade show is one step ahead of all the trends and provides endless options for designers and retail shop owners to buy unique home accessories, tabletop, furniture, and lighting items that can be incorporated into every style and aesthetic. According to the team at Ambiente, these are the top trend categories that we will be seeing over the next year in home design.
Under tabletop, we saw items that crossed the lines of Fashion into Home Design with pieces such as the “jewelry” for the kitchen. Why not have a gorgeous necklace to protect your tabletop during your next dinner?
We know how much our readers love their pets, so how could we not share these pieces of man’s best friend? The cashmere and wool selection of throws and pillows are beautifully crafted and make use of vibrant colors to make them very on trend and fashion forward.
If you are looking for some additional seating options, why stick to the traditional ottoman or garden stool when you can have these rattan dogs that are both sculptures and functional seating at the same time.
These examples of outdoor décor bring a new twist to how we can entertain throughout this summer.
The nest planter stand allows for a great way to introduce lighting to your outdoor setting on trend with the mixed metal combination and free-standing shape. Our favorite find, however, has to be these over-scaled sculptural ceramic planters in either white or gold that are a new standout way to bring your plants both indoors and out.
While we are always looking for creative ways to imagine areas for seating and outdoor living, why not consider these indoor/outdoor poufs and tables made in the highest quality material, resistant to the elements, instead of the traditional sofa and table combination?
Lastly, this perfect collection for our California lifestyle, Villeroy and Boch launches the “Ultimate Barbeque” collection with a wide range of plates for everything from hotdogs and hamburgers to appetizers and kebabs. Throw those plastic plates out and kick off your BBQs this Memorial Day weekend in style.
Make sure to put February 12th–16th, 2016 on your calendar and join us in Frankfurt next year!
