Neutrality and elegance
Once again, this edition has stood out for the neutrality and naturalness of the products.
According to what was observed, natural stones accompanied by treated stones showed in a combination of formats. The metal plates appear in a more architectural way, the tones are more neutral and compact. Concrete look is not as important as other editions. On the contrary, marble has been one of the star product in this edition, becoming the most seen typology in many booths. Colorful and ostentatious marbles coexist with more sober and elegant ones. Woods are compact and not very daring. Lineal and soft woods with few knots stand up. Terrazzos have been present in many of the stands this year. Two main trends on them have been observed: innovation vs tradition. Textil appearance has not been as important as the previous ones. The trends in this type of product have been the delicate thread patterns and the micro-textures faithful to the reality.
