What most appeals to people around the world? The organizers of the biggest International Furniture Fair in the world imm cologne have once again commissioned top-class experts on an international trend board to discover what globally dominant trends and important developments are currently affecting interior design. This year, the expert committee consists of Tom Dixon, Marie O’Mahony, Chantal Hamaide, Eero Koviosto, Ilse Crawford and Reiko Miyamoto. Once again, visitors to the Las Vegas Furniture Market will be able to take a look at the Interior Trends exhibition, on show at Las Vegas Convention Center, which presents a unique selection of European design furniture and trend materials. “We are very excited to be presenting highlights from our trends manual at Las Vegas Market,” said Udo Traeger, Vice President – Furniture, Interior Design & Textiles. “World Market Center is an ideal venue for us to offer a taste of IMM Cologne to the United States.” The Interior Trends exhibition presents part of a series of showcases based on four trend themes ‘Storytelling’, ‘Technique Nature’, ‘The New New’ and ‘New Rituals’ - which are featured in the trendbook ‘Interior Trends 2006 published by the imm cologne. These trends are presented in four different spaces displaying a variety of furniture and different materials from textiles and leather to wood and veneers for furniture production. The trend themes reflect definitions of four ‘ideal consumers’ representing various furnishing styles which have formed the basis of the trend experts’ research. Beginning with imm cologne’s central trend showcase ‘informed by cologne,’ examples of trends are on display with some of the latest developments in furniture from four ‘informers’ upholstered furniture, flat pack furniture, solid wood furniture and mattresses/bedding systems. As part of this trends show concept which began with the trend board’s workshop and the trendbook, the materials collection had its premiere at ida/TIFF in Bangkok and is now presented here in Las Vegas for the second time together with parts of the ‘informed by cologne’ exhibition from the imm cologne.
