From February 13 to 17, the Ambiente fair in Frankfurt will establish decor trends for the year ahead, with exhibitors from across Europe presenting a wide selection of home accessories. Here are six of the new products we have our eye on.
1 Daisy by Georg Jensen Damask
Joining perennially popular patterns like Poppy and Dandelion, Georg Jensen Damask’s latest addition extends the brand’s floral-themed table linens with a more naturalistic botanic-inspired pattern. Seen here in a fennel-hued colourway, Daisy’s irregular pattern sets a fresh and casual mood.
2 Form Stools by Normann Copenhagen
The Form family of solid wood and polymer tables and chairs, conceived by Danish designer Simon Legald, now includes a handsome bar stool. The pieces, available in two heights, are offered with a white or grey seat pan, while the legs can be specified in either oak or walnut.
3 Paravent Wave by Hey-Sign
Germany’s Hey-Sign will unveil an assortment of acoustic decor items, including wall tiles and florets, bins, and these folding room dividers, all executed in their trademark felt. Paravent Wave’s ripple of thick felt offers exceptional acoustic dampening; disc-shaped bases are also available for use with single panels.
4 Hub and Cubist Collections by Umbra
Larger pieces in solid wood and metal are a big part of Umbra’s ongoing reinvention. At Ambiente, Umbra will feature new objects from the Hub collection, including this bentwood-topped umbrella stand, as well as wire-frame Cubist shelving units that include trays and small compartments for holding bric-a-brac and even potted plants.
5 Digital Kitchen Scale and Timer With Strap by Eva Solo
Danish kitchenwares giant Eva Solo makes several additions to its massive catalog each year, and 2015 is no exception. This year’s new items include a sleek digital countertop scale and hanging timer, both available in a warm hue called “dusty orange.”
6 Divina Proporzione by Designobject
Squares and isosceles triangles framed in powder-coated metal rods give this pendant its strictly proportioned cage, which looks different from every angle. Designer Vito Cappellari also created a larger version with more intersecting lines, as well as a simpler triangular-topped table.
