Ambiente in Frankfurt is where you would expect anyone who is anyone in the consumer goods space to be. Spread across five days, the design fair welcomes over 4,440 exhibitors from 89 countries with almost 140,000 buyers from 168 countries. Ambiente is more than just a fair. With some of the most exciting and innovative designs, it’s an experience and an opportunity to discover the trends and themes that consumers can expect to see in stores around the world soon. The Discern Team’s annual visit to Ambiente left us impressed by the breadth of design and decor option. The fair delineated four trends at different talks, displays, and presentations which we agreed with and were inspired by. Here is what we thought about each of them.
