There are so many things happening around us that sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming and challenging to keep up with everything. Being a designer and blogger means that I “must” be updated re trends, going to design and fashion events, expos and shows. Most of the time it’s fun, but it also means enormous amount of work, research and writing. Anyway, I’m not complaining!
I’ve made a collection of essential things to focus on/attend in February – check it out and feel free to add any upcoming event to the February list in the comments below regardless where it will be held.
4-6 February 2014 SURFACE DESIGN SHOW / LONDON; Business Design Centre
It’s kind of interesting, it’s all about new and innovative surfaces, materials and textures, especially for architects and interior designers. There is a huge variety of seminars, debates and presentations, but my very favourite is always the Colour & Material Trend forecast by Global Colour Research. This year they present an inspirational seminar profiling four key colour stories for 2015; Glade, Aura, Merge and Belong, I cannot wait to see! (5th February 16:45 – 17:30) www.surfacedesignshow.com
5-9 February 2014 INTERNATIONAL GIFT & DECORATION FAIR / MADRID
Intergift, a significant event for producers and suppliers of gift and decoration products, is an opportunity for the people to live in style here and now rather than in the distant future. Beautiful things for a happy living is the key philosophy for the event dedicated to what is behind high spirits, harmony and peace both within and without. It is sure to provide creative and innovative gift ideas to suit all budget ranges to cater to both corporate & personal gifting needs. www.ifema.es
11-14 February 2014 FERIA HABITAT VALENCIA / VALENCIA
It is an international fair of textile manufactures for the Home Textiles and Decoration. www.feriahabitatvalencia.com
