At the FOR DECOR & HOME fair it was possible for its visitors to see the unique exhibition entitled CHRISTMAS TRENDS 2016. Four different styles were presented in four expositions, namely Christmas in Tones; In Gardens; I, the Forest - You, the Man; and Glamour of Ostentation.
Christmas in Tones
Design of Scandinavian countries is a large source of inspiration. One of the characteristic elements through which the Scandinavian design differs from other ones is simplicity and use of natural materials. Nordic people prefer simplicity, it is true, but they enjoy colours as well. A typical Nordic day is usually not rich in light, and therefore they are fond of various colour combinations which are so popular in Nordic regions.
The style of the trends entitled “In Gardens” is fresh, clean and full of feminineness and elegance. Its aim is to raise a fresh impression. Thanks to the colours used, the trend does not raise, at first sight, typical Christmas impressions; it is not its main goal either, although it is a Christmas trend. Its aim is rather to remind summer days full of sunshine, flowers and fragrances; and therefore just to bring calm in the hectic advent time.
I, the Forest - You, the Man
This trend is inspired by the actual essence of a forest and views into it, offering infinity in a different type of “tasting”. It draws perceptions of viewers so much that they themselves are not able to return back into reality and become a part of the solid state of the forest community.
Glamour of Ostentation
This type of glamour reflects peculiarity and brilliance of the end of the century before last. The combination of historical and luxurious decorations brings us in saloons and boudoirs of large spectacular palaces. Combinations of seemingly different colours, namely gold, silver and black with addition of tones of claret to brown colours, create a magic impression bringing us in another, mysterious world.
