Held annually in Frankfurt, Germany, Ambiente is one of the world's oldest and biggest consumer goods trade fair; it brings together a wide selection of tableware, furniture, decorative objects as well as kitchenware and household products from leading and emerging brands around the world.
Ahead of the upcoming fair, German design studio Stilbüro bora.herke.palmisano shares their trend forecast for 2019.
Think lively tones of red, pink and green that are inspired by botanical themes and vintage prints. These vibrant tones pair well with an eclectic mix of geometric patterns and oversized decorative objects to create a playful and irreverent air.
Artisan-made ceramics and hand-crafted details are on the rise, while designers continue to experiment with traditional craft techniques and recycling to ensure the sustainability of each design.
Quality craftsmanship continues to be important to the creation of showpieces made using these fabrics, which can be paired with pieces featuring polished surfaces such as porcelain or glass.
The Ambiente consumer goods trade fair will run from 8-12 February 2019 in Frankfurt, Germany. Visit ambiente.messefrankfurt.com to learn more.
