Trends To Use From the IMM Cologne Fair 2018

IMM Cologne is one of the most important furniture and interiors design events in the calendar. Held in the second week of January in Cologne, one of Germany's most unique cities, split by the river Rhine, innovation and technology remained the mainstay of the fair.



Here are some key observations from the fair.

Awaken early 20th century architectural styles in interiors. Boho chic shake up. Elements pushed together to create unexpected new experiences. To tell stories. Ehtnic patterns, cane elements, black and white images, and colourful fabrics with contemporary design. Past and present combine to make a new way.



Trend colours. Rust/brick red was easily the colour of the season, with the tone dominating marble tops, fabrics, leather and various other surface finishes. Olive green, warm blue remain favourites, and heartwood, the red tinted warm grey, is another colour being used in walls and larger surfaces, adding more character. While ultra violet, the fashion colour of the year, found its way into some aspects of interiors, a mixed palette of pastels were most notable.



Duality in materials. Velvets. Suede. Concrete. Metal. Walnut and oak remain favourites, but in a range of tones.

Forget minimalism, think order, simplicity and strokes of unexpected harmony. Simplify the old to build a new language.



Sustainability is a way of life. Steel enamel, ceramic, natural stone, marble, natural fibres. Materials that last long, reusable products, and low carbon footprint production is key.

Be natural. Integrating living plants into a space, no matter the size of the room, and green, or rather, a band of green hues.



Bathrooms are now fashion statements with individual design elements in the space. Gone is the safe play of warm tones and marble on walls.

Linoleum returns in tabletops, sideboards and cabinet inlays.



Solid wood grows in stature - tables, cupboards, sideboards and even sofas - in elegant, balanced forms.



Smart homes. Digital links to almost everything in the home.

Things to use, and to set your creative spirit free!

5 Cosy Fabric Sofas that are Simply Irresistible

They say when you love something you will know it when you see one. We’re talking about sofas. Our latest fabric sofa collection are not only good looking, but at the same time cosy, charming, stylish, and graceful. It’s the first thing you will want to relax on when you come home at the end of a long tired day (too bad if you thought it was the bed). That’s because our sofas make you feel at home.

No other sofa gives you so much freedom as Bellice (shown in the picture below). Completely modular, from Beck Design by Leolux is anything but ordinary. It works in umpteen arrangements from armchair, chaise longue, corner sofa, to sectional. With footstools, head supports in three widths and arm cushion variants.


Unconventional, cosy and modular, the Pacific (in grey) sofa by Fama consists of six platforms of different measures which one can add or remove backrests to turn into a chaise lounge or an attractive curved sofa. Every time you feel your living room needs a new look, you just have to add or remove according to your wish.



Inspired by the fifties, but retro-styled for the modern home Astoria (in light blue) by Fama is an eye-catcher from every angle. Adding a special touch are the legs, a contemporary upgrade of the classic 17th century design. Thanks to its attractive design and great comfort, Astoria can be coupled with any other furniture to make your d├ęcor look interesting.




Dieses sectional sofa (below) by Natuzzi is compact and ideal for apartment living. It features an adjustable headrest, sleek wooden legs, and a stylish piping for the armrest. Other options include a sofa bed with the innovative Greenplus mattress, recliner mechanism with “zero wall” system; the seating and backrest move forward, inclining as the sofa opens so there's no need to keep it away from the wall. Dieses is versatile as it is available in several configurations to meet the consumer's space requirements.



Showcased in the picture below is the much loved sectional sofa and the most versatile as well, Arianne Love lives up to its name with its inviting design and endlessly extendable modules. This latest model by Fama allows you to control the sofa through an app on your phone. You can raise the height of the sofa before or while you sit, making it perfect for older people too. Besides, you can customise this sofa in terms of look, size, colour, and print.



Whenever you choose a sofa from Simply Sofas, you have the privilege of getting it designed in the choice of colour, size, shape, and material you like. Simply because we believe that comfort should be adapted to suit your lifestyle and taste. Visit us and get the joy of designing your homes beautifully and distinctively.

8 Sideboards That Go Well With Any Dining Setting

There are some furniture pieces whose absence makes the space look mundane just like a missing piece in a puzzle game, and whose presence adds more sophistication and functionality. The sideboard is one such. The sideboard adds to the aesthetic value of the dining room, completing the ensemble with table and chairs. Sideboards are essential - where would you keep your crystal ware, fine china, cutlery, glassware, cooking books and a lamp, or even display a grand meal for your guests?

With the launch of the new Milan Collection 2018, we have the latest straight from the world's biggest design fair. Get ready to be inspired and fall in love.

By Tonin Casa is the bold and chic Tiffany. With a quilted covering, this sideboard is in a Canaletto walnut finish and upholstered in rhombus patterned Ottanio leather. Truly a representation of Made in Italy.

Classic in looks yet modern in function, the Alf Rigadin sideboard comes with solid wood oak panels in a finish reminiscent of the traditional ‘rigadin’ pinstripe pattern of Murano handblown glass vases. The unit sits on a lean steel frame and is capped with a marble top.

Rigadin by Alf Italia

Lines and geometry embody the striking Maya sideboard by Tonin Casa, with an embossed wood effect in Canaletto walnut. This distinct piece breaks the monotony of anything that is ordinary.

Maya from Tonin Casa

Bridging the gap between classical and modern, the Frame sideboard by Bonaldo is in an irresistible bold metal frame structure that stands in sharp contrast to the wooden panels. Designed by Alain Gilles.

Frame from Bonaldo

Inspired by the 70s graphics and an object of art, Shade by Bonaldo comes with a metal base and elegant bevelled sides to make its edges less sharp.

Shade from Bonaldo

Here's a graceful Wai chest of drawers by Mario Mazzer for Bonaldo. The base takes its shape from the joined hand gesture, a sign of respect across the East, and the Thai for welcome. It has a metal base and wooden frame with recessed handles. Together they form a simple and stylish appearance.

Wai by Bonaldo

Contemporary and distinctive, Amber sideboard by Jamie Durie for Natuzzi. The decorative scalloped front face uses a custom CNC cutting path with a timber veneer overlay surface, resulting in a beautiful undulating sculptural surface.

Amber from Natuzzi

Versatile in nature, Honey works as a television stand and sideboard. Standing out with distinguished woodworking is the Canaletto walnut and heat-treated dark oak and glass highlights. This beautiful beehive design by Tonin Casa is brought to life through skilled workmanship.

Honey from Tonin Casa

The new collection is a visual treat in terms of design and structure. These sideboards are worked with different styles, colours, patterns, and finishes in unusual and exciting new ways to complement as well as balance with the existing decor in your room. Along with design and functionality, these pieces are evolved to fit changing decor styles and complement challenging interiors.  The most important thing to do when choosing a sideboard is to make sure that it's functional and serves your need.
