2015 Material trends:
One of the major highlights in materials last year was smoked Eucalyptus wood finish. Toned steel, marble, metal, wood and glass were other combinations that enjoyed contemporary design expression on tabletops and in accessories. Wood played a major role in outdoor furniture. Also, range of table tops in ceramic, marble, wood and glass.

2016 Material trends:
Based on the collective trends in fairs across the world, newspaperwood, marbles, chestnut bark, vintage, stonewashed stainless steel were seen as the latest in materials. With cutting-edge innovation, technology and design, it is hard to say which materials will make big this year and will sit in the homes of Italians and then the rest of the world.
