Stockholm Furniture and Light Fair 2016
I visited this years Stockholm Furniture and Lights 2016 fair on its last day which is dedicated to us regular people and non-professionals. I git the impression that there were more visitors this year than previous years, but still not too crowded. Probably because this fair is HUGE and spread out in several halls. Usually I manage about 3 hours at a fair, this time it became 4, and I was more or less done with.
Impressions of the fair? Lots of rice-paper lamps. Lots of natural materials. Lots of cushions in various pale color hues. Lots of clothes-hangers and chairs of all kinds.
I am not much for memorizing brand-names, but the below chairs are from Normann Copenhagen. Why everyone this year put the chairs either on the walls or in piles though? Saving space for the exhibitions?
There were lots of paletts too, just like last year. Where there were most new things and innovative solutions was on the lightning front. A lot is happening there nowadays with LED light making it possible to create innovative lights. As many others have said, the next big thing in interior design will probably be the carpets.
It was as always hard to take decent pictures at the fair as the lighting is what it is. All pictures have therefore been edited in Camera Raw to get rid of most of the yellow cast on them. Here is a gallery of all my pictures, mainly uncommented.
