Trending Tones and Seasonal Styles: SS18 Trends In Interior Décor
Panel Talk 16:30-17:30 // Living Room // Book Here - €8
Feng Shui was the buzzword that dominated design circles in the 90s, to be replaced with Manhattan loft-style industrialism in the 00s; every interior era is steeped in cultural trend. As recently as 2016, we’ve seen the Danish concept of ‘hygge’ take hold with natural, enveloping textures, until balance was restored by the Swedes in 2017 with their ‘just enough’ philosophy, ‘lagom’. Join our panellists, Dax Roll and Joyce Urbanus (interior designers and co-founders of Nicemakers) and Jacomien van Haersma Buma-Zandt (interior designer and co-founder of Fortunata) as they look at trends from filament lightbulbs to connected tech homes to the post-succulent revolution. The conversation will be steered by our Hox How To expert moderator Margot van der Krogt at Mae & Many to ensure you’re fully equipped with the intel to tackle the trends head on.
