One of the things that we also really enjoy when we take part in different trade shows is seeing what talented stylists from around the world create for the special trend exhibitions. These exhibitions are an important part of almost every fair.
Currently in progress, the Stockholm Furniture Fair is no exception. For this edition of the fair four prominent Scandinavian interior designers have been invited to share their vision of spaces spanning from the home to public environments. The result is a hotel lobby, a lunch room, a home office and a bedroom that blurs the lines between public and private.
We were thrilled that Normann Copenhagen was represented in all four rooms with more than 18 of our products such as the newly launched Form chair, the Cap table lamp and the classic Whisky glasses.
Join us here for a look at their trend predictions.

The Bedroom – Scandinavian maximalism
Color expert Dagny Thurmann-Hoelseth’s has created a bedroom with the theme “Scandinavian maximalism”. In this room Dagny has broken away from Scandinavian minimalism and created a relaxed look. She has mixed expensive items with products at lower price points and added deep saturated colors. She believes that we will be seeing a lot more of this more maximalist Scandinavian style in the future.
Dagny Thurmann-Hoelseth, is an Oslo-based color expert whose work includes color and trend analyses and concept development for various brands.

The Lunchroom – slow motion
Designer Johanna Asshoff’s lunchroom is bright and uncluttered, with large, clean surfaces that create a clear space and leave room for the small details. In the design, she uses mainly natural materials, with green plants and luscious shapes embracing those entering the room.
Johanna Asshoff is trained as an interior designer and designer at Carl Malmsten’s School and has run the Stockholm-based Asshoff & Brogård design studio since 2008.

The Home Office – new simplicity
Trend expert Stefan Nilsson has created a home office that can switch between the private and public. For 2015 Stefan believes in “reduction” and “new simplicity” and his aim has been to create a relaxing and aesthetic atmosphere which also allows plenty of room for an efficient work day. One of the ways he has achieved this is by incorporating lots of storage space.
Stefan Nilsson is a Swedish design and trends expert. He founded the Design Gallery design works in Stockholm in 2008.

The Hotel Lobby – luxury and grandeur
Danish stylist, concept developer, design journalist and writer Lene Ostenfeldt invites you to have a break in her luxurious lobby that seeks encourage people to step out of their comfort zone of traditional Scandinavian decorating:
“In my design, I would like to raise our Scandinavian roots to a new global level. The space should exude luxury and extravagance and convey a warm, comfortable feeling. For some years now, the color white has ruled and minimalist design has been popular, but I want to work with a sensitively selected color scale. More color is on the rise and I hope to inspire more courage in décor”, says Lene Ostenfeldt.
