Trends To Use From the IMM Cologne Fair 2018

IMM Cologne is one of the most important furniture and interiors design events in the calendar. Held in the second week of January in Cologne, one of Germany's most unique cities, split by the river Rhine, innovation and technology remained the mainstay of the fair.

Here are some key observations from the fair.

Awaken early 20th century architectural styles in interiors. Boho chic shake up. Elements pushed together to create unexpected new experiences. To tell stories. Ehtnic patterns, cane elements, black and white images, and colourful fabrics with contemporary design. Past and present combine to make a new way.

Trend colours. Rust/brick red was easily the colour of the season, with the tone dominating marble tops, fabrics, leather and various other surface finishes. Olive green, warm blue remain favourites, and heartwood, the red tinted warm grey, is another colour being used in walls and larger surfaces, adding more character. While ultra violet, the fashion colour of the year, found its way into some aspects of interiors, a mixed palette of pastels were most notable.

Duality in materials. Velvets. Suede. Concrete. Metal. Walnut and oak remain favourites, but in a range of tones.

Forget minimalism, think order, simplicity and strokes of unexpected harmony. Simplify the old to build a new language.

Sustainability is a way of life. Steel enamel, ceramic, natural stone, marble, natural fibres. Materials that last long, reusable products, and low carbon footprint production is key.

Be natural. Integrating living plants into a space, no matter the size of the room, and green, or rather, a band of green hues.

Bathrooms are now fashion statements with individual design elements in the space. Gone is the safe play of warm tones and marble on walls.

Linoleum returns in tabletops, sideboards and cabinet inlays.

Solid wood grows in stature - tables, cupboards, sideboards and even sofas - in elegant, balanced forms.

Smart homes. Digital links to almost everything in the home.

Things to use, and to set your creative spirit free!
