Who loves to discover news from the design world and know what the next trends will be? Although I am not an expert in this area, I love meeting different brands and discovering innovative stores and designers with modern ideas.
One of the parts that I like the most when it comes to design is decoration. Whenever I can I buy an item, especially when traveling. If you are like me and also love to stay on top of these releases, you will be dying to go to at least one of these fairs!
NYC X Design
New York is one of the most vibrant cities when it comes to modern and innovative news and products. For this reason, it hosts several design fairs. One of the most incredible and famous is NYCxDESIGN. It takes place annually and in 2019 it will take place between the 10th and the 22nd of May.
It is interesting to go to this type of fair not only to see the launch of more well-known brands, but also to explore new companies and see what is being produced again by them. Try to look for local artisans to value the work of city dwellers ?
Looking for ideas to renovate your home and transform it into a modern environment? Then TrendSet Munich will make you fall in love, because the focus of this fair is on home decor products! Each year the fair follows a pattern in curatorship. In 2018, earthy colors and natural and recycled fabrics were part of most of the stands.
To our delight, it happens twice a year. In 2019, the winter fair will take place between the 3rd and 5th of January. The summer will take place from the 6th to the 8th of July. It is interesting to go to this type of fair not only for the goods but also to learn about colors, textures and patterns that are on the rise, you know?
Italy has always been considered one of the most influential countries in the fashion world. However, the design fairs that take place there are also incredible and always showing trends in this area. Salone del Mobile, for example, gathers more than two thousand exhibitors and was founded in 1961, always promoting the creative area throughout the country.
Artists from different locations around the world come to the site to exhibit their work and present what they have produced. The valorization of young talents is also another priority of the fair, it is worth visiting! In Milan, it will take place from 9 to 14 April.
London Design Festival
Creativity and innovation are the keywords to describe this wonderful event. The London Design Festival usually takes place over a week, with several events and exhibitions related to the world of design.
As stated by the fair’s website, they aim to promote London as the design capital of the world. I confess that this call is a little pretentious, but they really invest to bring the best of the creative universe to the booths and events at the fair! This year it took place in September, but the 2019 dates have not yet been released.
The Salon Art + Design
Another design fair in New York! As I already told you, the city is full of events that involve fashion, creativity and news, and The Salon Art + Design is another one of them. Galleries from around the world participate in the fair, which combines old and historical items with everything that is most modern.
Some collections presented there are even of limited editions, so I recommend that you do not rush in time to walk through the stands. Oh, and this one you can still try to go, because it will happen between November 8 and 12 ?
Design Miami and Art Basel
From December 5th to 9th, artists will exhibit at Design Miami and Art Basel furniture, decorations and other art objects, all with a very contemporary footprint. As the fair has not yet been held, you can guarantee your ticket by clicking here. Take advantage of the tour of all the facilities to meet not only design artists but also architects and curators.
TORONTO DESIGN OFFSITE FESTIVAL
Vibrant and full of innovations, the Toronto Design Offsite Festival is a combination of exhibitions, openings and meetings with designers from different corners of the globe. The main purpose of this event is to bring art and design out of offices and studios, encouraging greater contact between these artists and also with the general public.
Contemporary culture is celebrated in different ways by all participants, whether by a painting or a simple chair. They focus mainly on independent artists, so you will find a lot of new things there!
LOS ANGELES DESIGN FESTIVAL
Anyone who has been with me for a while knows how much I love Los Angeles. Therefore, I could not leave out one of the cities that I like the most. The Los Angeles Design Festival is full of exhibits and panels with wonderful design items. It’s like you’re inside multiple Pinterest environments, I swear!
The 9th edition of the event will take place in June 2019 and you can already buy your ticket through the website. If you are interested, just click here. If you really like this area, you can opt for the more expensive invitation, which gives you access to tours and lectures. The theme of the 2019 fair will be “Design with purpose”.
Decor + Design
Changing a little geographic location, let’s talk about Australia. The 2019 edition of Decor + Design Show Melbourne will take place between the 18th and 21st of July and brings together approximately 300 Australian brands of products and furniture. In addition to visiting the fair to seek inspiration for decorations, it is interesting to discover what they are creating again and what are the advances in the area, such as more sustainable and ecological products.
Again New York appearing on the list! Like the other fairs on the list, NY NOW is geared towards Lifestyle in general. If you like to value craftsmanship and designers who prefer manual labor, you will love visiting this fair. She is not specialized in this, but it is one of the many options that you will be able to see when guaranteeing your entry to the event.
Have you chosen the dream fairs? I confess that it is even difficult to choose, not only for the variety but also for the places where these events are held. It is more beautiful than the other!
