Last Monday I shared some interior design trends from Copenhagen with you, today I am bringing back some design highlights from last week's imm 2014 international furniture fair in Cologne, Germany. My fellow blogger friend Ricarda and I organized the 'Blogst Lounge' at the imm fair and hosted almost 30 German lifestyle bloggers. Our day included a guided tour of selected exhibitors, a little blogger presentation held by Ricarda and me, and free time to roam and discover interior design gems at the fair.
As an 'Urban Jungle Blogger' I was very happy to see green on the rise! Many booths were decorated with potted plants, big ones, small ones and I feel confident to say: Green is on in the homes in 2014! Bring it on! I noticed also a growing number of marble furniture and brass elements. Warm, saturated colours were present too as well as great combinations of wood, marble and leather. Moreover, I spotted lots of modular furniture concepts - the trend towards individuality and co-designing by the customer.
January and February will remain busy months concerning design and furniture fairs, so expect more interior design highlights from Paris and Stockholm over the coming weeks. Stay tunes my friends for interior design from all around Europe!
