Three design trends from three international fairs

Thanks to a comeback of live events, many international fairs took place this fall. This means the return of some of the most interesting exhibitions in the world of design. We took three of these – held respectively in Paris, London, and Copenhaghen – and found three design trends to inspire the furnishing of a hairdressing salon.

The panorama of interior colors for the winter season presented at the Parisian fair was interesting. We were able to identify three main trends. First of all, a revival of the Seventies, seen today with a touch of nostalgia as a period when anything was possible. Dark orange and moss green are nuances that on their own or when combined recreate a Seventies atmospher. At the same time, they are the perfect accent another trend of this season: natural colors. Brown, yellow, terracotta, all softened into neutral tones of beige, represent the selections most in vogue for the end of this year. Let’s not forget the 2021 Pantone colors – yellow and electric blue – that alternate with retro pastels like mauve. Finally, to boost the personality of interiors, the color block technique will see saturated solid-color fields, mostly in contrasting hues.

From the London Design Festival: focus on comfort

Tbhere is no need to resort fo the extremes of chubby design. But designers are focusing on the comfort of the furnishing. In this historic moment, the pandemic has exasperated our need for safety. As a result, furnishing has gone soft, both in terms of lines and fabrics. Divans we can sink into, armchairs that embrace us, even chairs with lush fillings are in vogue. Comfort is also evident in the surfaces and the upholstery. Fabrics are also in natural and sustainable materials, like cork, for example, or even a return of bouclé.

From 3 Days of Design: a new attitude

Lastly, the Copenhagen fair focused on the increased attention not only on sustainability. The quality of the furnishing also counts. Yet another of the many consequences of the pandemic is the desire for more authenticity and stability. Consequentially, people are demanding longer-lasting materials in furniture. Short-lived trends of the moment are out. Moreover, this attitude can also be noticed in younger generations. Maybe we can capture this sentiment with the claim “timeless is better”.
