An autumn of fairs to discover the latest trends
Lluïsa Deulonder and Chone de la Sotilla have recently visited the Intergift and Architect @ Work fairs to keep up to date with what is happening at the decoration level
After the paralysis caused by the pandemic, the fair activity is recovering little by little. The interior designers of Deulonder, Lluïsa Deulonder, Chone de la Sotilla and Lourdes Adell, have recently been able to visit – and in person! – two fairs dedicated to the field of decoration. As always, the goal is to collect the best of international trends in decoration to offer the best decorative solutions in your projects. Lluïsa Deulonder was in Madrid, where the fair organized by IFEMA Madrid, Intergift, was held from September 15 to 19. This national fair brings together new trends in decoration and gifts, and is a reduced version of the prestigious Maison & Object fair in Paris. 320 international companies participated in this edition and presented their novelties for the autumn-winter season.
«Brucs, Becara, Taller de las Indias … Many of the houses that exhibit their products sell a type of high-quality wooden furniture that combines perfectly with Deulonder kitchens and decorations, marked by their cozy and comfortable look» , explains Lluïsa Deulonder. As a novelty this year, the fair incorporated the Textile Editors space, with a wide range of wallpapers and wall coverings.
On the other hand, Chone de la Sotilla and Lourdes Adell visited ARCHITECT @ WORK 2021 (September 15-16) in Barcelona, a very exclusive fair in which each exhibitor presents three novelties. This year – says Chone de la Sotilla – the issue of the pandemic has been noted and some important casualties have been noted. «Despite the fact that this year the fair was more dedicated to construction, we always get positive things from these visits that later have an impact on our kitchen and interior design projects,» explains Chone de la Sotilla. Regarding trends, he has observed a profusion of gold and bronze, with finishes that guarantee that the piece does not age. Other novelties that De la Sotilla highlights are the companies that make engravings on the glass itself and that allow flooring to be made, as well as the proposals of the Bover lighting house, «a very beautiful and decorative material that harmonizes a lot with our aesthetic line».
