IMM COLOGNE TRENDS 2019 - by KAUCH
The Imm fair in Cologne, Germany is one of the most important furniture fairs in Europe. It is the first one of the year and opens the season of fairs. It showcases furniture from the most important brands and presents the trends of the following season. There is more than 1,200 firms from 50 countries involved and the fair takes place in 11 halls on over 250.000 square metres.
We present some of the trends and a selection of sofa sets, which stood out at the fair this year. Choosing a sofa set is very important as it presents a central part of the space and is the most noticeable element. Upholstered furniture is no longer meant just for relaxation, its aesthetic value is more and more important. When choosing a sofa set, the comfort and quality are important but just as important is compatibility with the rest of the interior furniture. Furniture with rounded edges will be very popular. Our interiors will be brought closer to nature with organic shapes of sofas, armchairs and chairs along with other trends. Choose upholstered furniture in bold colours like emerald green, yellow, coral or dark blue.
The IT color of this year’s IMM Cologne must be yellow – appropriate for all those, who like bold and lively tones.
02. PASTEL TONES
Pastel tones are still in. The prevailing colors are dusty pink, light blue, lemon-yellow, lilac, peach-orange and sage greens.
03. MODULAR SOFAS
Modular sofas are distinguished by flexibility, as they can be constructed depending on the space, needs and lifestyle.
04. FLUFFY FABRICS
Fluffy sofas that look like they are dressed in soft sheep wool, are pleasant to the touch and create a feeling of hominess and comfort.
05. BULKY SHAPES
Soft lines of sofas and an overblown look. Pretty shapes of soft padded sofas are inviting us to sit there.
06. PANTONE COLOUR OF 2019 – LIVING CORAL
2019 is all about Living coral, which was pronounced Pantone’s Color of the Year. Not even sofa sets could escape this color.
With its simplicity and functionality, the Oto collection is suitable for various users and situations. With its characteristic form, it brings a balance of clean lines and softness in all sizes and placements. In combination with two types of cushions, the broad sitting surface offers optimal comfort regardless of your needs and wishes. A good balance between size and functional surface makes it possible to install even in smaller interiors. The thought-through design makes it easy to transport and quick to install without compromising the quality of production.
