March 2016 issue

Furniture Fair Stockholm
Without any doubt scrolling through this newsletter you will experience the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2016 as a warm & welcome colourful event.

Beautiful ranges of intense and outspoken colours could be enjoyed in this show. Gradations of warm tones were omnipresent ranging from pastel to muted to very deep and saturated. Yellow was also prominent and seemed to play a major role.

Outspoken pink floors were applied in several booths and fitted seamlessly well in these warm colour cocoons. A pink invasion that seemed to challenge the ever so popular neutral flooring colours.

With the celebration of colours and the making of graphic statements clearly an extrovert mindset could be experienced at this years fair.

Definitely it felt as the right timing for a sneak preview of our laser engraved Marmoleum Signature series.
