STYLING HIGHLIGHTS FROM COLOGNE
Fairs dedicated to furniture and furnishing show how designing companies are imagining and shaping future of the living place. Looking at these kinds of events it’s really useful and exiting for the passionate and the professional of interior design. IMM Cologne is the first yearly event dedicated to this sector, a very famous and appreciated event.
Let’s take a look into the last proposals that could be adapted for our home. This last edition has especially showed upholstered sofas, featuring clean and soft lines, having shapes that resemble the 50s-60s designs. Alongside this, kitchen cupboards and containers have been proposed with repeated elementary geometries.
Finishes and metal tubes frames are inspired by the sideboards made by industrial Bauhaus. Therefore are back vintage sideboards and armchairs with predominantly neutral and desaturated tones, alongside coffee tables made entirely of glass plates with a retro texture, which recalls that of the halftoned plates. The modular furnish, to be assembled attached on the wall or as portioning for the living area.
The modular furnishings, to be mounted on the wall as a bookcase or see-not-see partitions for the living area, are more current than ever. They are also suitable for the needs of those who need to furnish the first home, taking into account reduced available spaces.
The proposal from Cologne of a courtyard house in which the interior and exterior interact without dividing walls, is inventing (= ardita?) for the fluidity in which the spaces are blended. Yet indeed, that a multifunctional and flexible furniture is the answer to a living area that increasingly it is often a place for family, study and meeting.
