Office furniture has not been our most developed branch at Funique’s. However, we have recently experienced much interest in home office furniture solutions.
Therefore we have decided to visit one of most prestigious European fair in Cologne, Germany. Orgatec 2014 turned out to be very interesting show not only for office furniture lovers, but also great exposure for general, modern trends in design. Innovation was also a very strong word at this fair. Novelty in office furniture solutions is intense and we believe all these trends could shortly be found in home furniture as well.
First impression - fabrics have become most popular furniture material. Forget about wood, metal or glass. Colourful, upholstered items dominated show in Cologne.
We are talking not only about sofas and chairs. Fabrics are commonly used for wardrobes, sideboards as well as wall decor solutions.
Second impression – much emphasis is put on individuality and privacy. A lot of innovative office furniture solutions are designed for people working on open spaces but still able to keep their individuality. The modern office furniture are in fact working stations for individuals or groups who want to cooperate with others, but at the same time can retrieve privacy and tranquility.
Third impression, furniture utility is equally important to the design and look. We have seen some beautiful furniture masterpieces with incredible usefulness behind them as well.
We believe all the trends noticed on the Cologne fair are very fresh and shortly will be noticed on home furniture market as well. You can be sure Funique is always up to date and expect some novelties on our website.
