The first edition of HOMI Outdoor Home & Dehors is approaching. The new format dedicated to home decor and accessories for inside and out, set to run from 13 – 16 September 2019 at Fiera Milano, is taking shape in terms of what it will offer and, above all, in the mood that will characterise the event. From spaces for research design and new talent, to training initiatives, to the many trends it will showcase, HOMI Outdoor Home&Dehors promises to be a brand new format of great relevance for the community of retailers, interior decorators, cool hunters and all operators interested in the evolution of styles in the home sector.
Original and unconventional proposals will take centre stage: innovative shapes, unusual forms, studies on materials never used before and exciting experiments that characterise the most exclusive products will be at the heart of the event, in a formula that combines interior furnishings with outside space, in a liquid conception of the home that here becomes a new lifestyle dimension.
The Creations area will feature once again, building on the popularity it experienced during previous HOMI editions, thanks to the expansion of the product types accepted within the HOMI Outdoor format.
HOMI Outdoor Home&Dehors will, above all, offer a unique opportunity to discover the most exciting home trends: inspired by nature, in interior decor and tableware, with animals, leaves and references to the outdoor ambience, using natural elements such as stone or worked wood, while the rediscovery of small and large outdoor spaces is accompanied and enhanced by the increasing enjoyment of outdoor cooking, an activity which combines time spent with loved ones and the pleasure of enjoying the fragrances and flavours of life in the open air.
Among the new opportunities that see the home as an unexpected protagonist is the evolution of our working practices – with a smartphone and a laptop, increasing numbers of people are now working remotely, most often from their own home.
Thus, the house may require a little “retouching” so as to be welcoming and retain its style while also proving functional and practical when transformed into an “office”.
With dimmer lights to contrast the light of the PC monitor, shelving and containers to best organise spaces and exploit every corner, as well as hidden document holders and great comfort, thanks also to ergonomic cushions for example, rooms can become the ideal environment in which to express our professionalism at any time.
Trends, ideas and more: HOMI Outdoor Home&Dehors will not only provide the chance to see what is new in the world of the home, but also serve as an all-round training opportunity, with dedicated events for retailers and specific initiatives for architects and design professionals.
For the managers, the event will provide workshops and useful seminars on how to make their point of sale an engaging showcase using key trends to enhance their product and involve the end customer, while architects will find opportunities to discuss possible materials, forms and stylistic approaches, new production techniques and space to explore the tastes and trends of the moment.
HOMI Outdoor Home&Dehors will run from 13 – 16 September at Fiera Milano, but all the excitement and emotions of living, lifestyle and new home trends will continue their journey at HOMI, Salone degli Stili di Vita from 24 – 27 January 2020 too, with a pre-opening of the Festivity sector from 22 to 26 January.
