One of the most significant events for discovering the latest trends for furniture, design and decoration is the Salone del Mobile in Milan 2022. Last June, it held its 60th edition with enormous success after not being able to be held due to the pandemic.
It is specifically the pandemic that has set the tone for current trends in decoration and interior design. Concepts such as sustainability, a return to nature and reconnection with spaces and people are the protagonists in new home spaces.
The “slow” movement, a trend that consists of living more slowly, in contrast to today’s frenetic lifestyle, which rarely leaves us enough time for ourselves.
Rooms in which we would never have thought we could work before, are now possible, where it is also a comfortable and relaxing area for the user. The functions of this space are adapted and reorganised according to the user’s own needs. We were able to see all these new trends at the Milano show.
As a result, kitchens are fully integrated into the home, designed to be used and enjoyed; adapted with all the comforts that the residents may need: from cooking comfortably to eating or socialising, to being able to work with all the necessary technical requirements.
Kitchens where materials such as steel, natural stone and spaces dedicated to the storage space and wine are predominant. Innovation can be seen in the electrical household appliances that incorporate the latest technologies in order to make life easier for the customer.
In terms of bathrooms, the trend is towards personal spaces designed for well-being and enjoyment; where the essential is precisely that harmony between all elements that are part of the room. Simplicity is the new luxury.
Homes to be lived in, living areas where nature is very present. In short, the trend is to design decorative projects that balance aesthetics and comfort, prioritizing the customer’s taste and, above all, to their wellbeing. This is what will really determine the style and design.
