Ambiente unveils trends

Ambiente (8 to 12 February 2019) opens its doors tomorrow, with an unprecedented85% of its exhibitors coming from outside Germany, and a total of 4,451 exhibitors from 92 countries.

In Galleria 1, Trends 2019 will be presented using products from across the show (including from T&G). The three trends include Tasteful Residence, represented by perfect craftsmanship with a flawless finish. Rich colours, sensual materials, pure lines and perfect proportions create a relaxed, timeless elegance for this trend, which embraces statement pieces.

The Quiet Surroundings trend reflects natural, simple and useful products that satisfy a yearning for calm and honesty, as well as creating a haven from stress. Meanwhile, Joyfilled Ambience celebrates bold colour combinations and non-conformity, with an essence of playfulness and ‘joie de vivre’.
