At Christmasworld, international retailers will be able to experience what colours, shapes and designs will be in vogue for Christmas decorations in the future. The Trend Area offers a unique overview of the exhibitors' new products, which will be presented by the trend bureau bora.herke.palmisano in three exciting trend worlds.
Whether visionary, familiar or more artisanal – the three styles of the Christmasworld Trends 24+ show inspiring designs for atmospheric and festive decorations. They also whet the appetite for the festival of love and for celebrations where people like to get together.
LOCATION: Hall 4.1, Foyer
„In our fast-paced, digital age, a counter-trend is emerging: the focus is on returning to nature, one's own home and human well-being – we also see this in the Christmasworld Trends 24+.“

In this trend world, archaic-natural elements meet futuristic-looking innovations. Handmade and high-tech are close to each other here – what sounds contradictory at first combines to form a radiant trend with illusory effects. For many designers, ecological sustainability is the starting point.
The intensely radiant and lively palette ranges from artificial violet and strong warm nuances in solar yellow and lava orange to archaic neutrals such as white, earthy brown and cloud grey to refreshing aqua tones.

Quality of silence_pure + familiar reflects the growing awareness for mental and physical well-being with designs that are close to nature and counteracts the fast pace of life. The principles of circular design are decisive: reuse, recycle, renew, rethink. Experiments with alternative materials give the familiar a new meaning and a contemporary, timeless value.
The colours of this trend world are delicate, bright and friendly. In the warm direction, the range includes soft terracotta, light wood tones and straw yellow. Matt ecru and sand tones have a balancing effect – for a cosy room experience full of harmony. In addition, a subtle mist tone, sage and shaded blue set cooler accents.

In the third trend world, picturesque patterns meet clear shapes, 70s vibes meet contemporary design. The free-spirited style celebrates diversity: a wide variety of techniques, materials and shapes come together in a sophisticated and inspiring mix. Materials are recycled as much as possible and upgraded into artistic products.
Honey-yellow amber, copper-brown brandy and an intense chilli form the warm orientation are part of the colour palette. A light and a dark grey together with sepia bring in a neutral balance. Deep glass green and dark turquoise round off the charismatic colour range with cooler aspects.
