Get ready to see some of the most exciting new trends, products and designs from around the world as Apartment Therapy heads this week to Ambiente, the leading international trade fair for table, kitchen, household, decorative products and more. Apartment Therapy will be there reporting on the most exciting and attractive things we see.
Based in Frankfurt, Germany, Ambiente is broken down into three main segments: Dining (which will feature new trends for table, kitchen and household products), Giving and Living. From February 13th - 17th, 4,700 exhibitors will be displaying their innovative wares in 27 halls bursting with gorgeous new designs.
We'll be looking for fabulous new designs that wow us, seeking out trends and checking in with favorite designers and brands to see what they've been working on.
Trends trends trends
We're most excited to see what looks, colors, textures and materials are showing up the most in designs this year, and will be collecting our findings as we explore. Ambiente has already started to uncover trends, discovered by trend experts from the renowned bora.herke.palmisano design studio. We'll be looking out for "Clarity & Lightness," "Craft & Culture," "History & Elegance" and "Humor & Curiosity" as we soak up design.
Function and solutions
Of course it isn't just about aesthetics. Ambiente also focuses on functional and practical solutions, so we'll be on the lookout for products designed to make life simpler and easier. The Solutions 2015 exhibition will present particularly stand-out products.
Hot new designers
We're particularly looking forward to the Talents exhibition, which will feature young designers from all over the world presenting their visionary creations for the dining sector. It'll be fun to see what the future holds for design!
The most exciting news: We're this year's partner country!
Another exciting thing about this year's Ambiente show is that the United States of America is this year's partner country, with a special exhibition by designer Scott Henderson. The US will give a presentation called "Seashore Galore" inspired by the coastline of New England and natural landscapes.
