Homi puts focus on new trends

Areas and initiatives that highlight original, evermore popular habit and trends take centre stage at Italian lifestyle show Homi MIlano, from January 27-30

Homi, the Lifestyles Show from Fiera Milano will return from January 27-30, 2017 with a spotlight on new trends that characterise objects for the home and accessories.

In this ever-changing world, Homi takes up the challenge, offering companies a layout that is always new – in line with changing lifestyles and demands - with areas dedicated to experimentation and a focus on trends and practices that are ever more widespread.

Of the many trends changing our daily lives, technology is, without a doubt, the one that stands out the most. It accompanies us in our daily lives, and is always present in our homes, in the objects that furnish them, and even in the accessories we wear.

In order to put the focus on this trend, this edition of Homi will feature the Homi Smart space, which aims to offer ideas for reflecting on, and highlighting, concrete examples of the ever stronger relationship between design and technology, and the beauty we experience through objects shared on social networks.

This sharing of fascinating objects online, along with the popular practice of looking for interior design ideas and tips online, are part of the theme behind a number of new initiatives.

At Homi 2017, the ideas and inspirations from these new style gurus will come to life with themed installations and spaces, workshops and demonstrations, with the greatest focus placed on the table, an area where originality, beauty and rules come harmoniously together to create ever more interesting compositions.

The world of costume jewellery is another important area of focus, with interesting research laboratory initiatives.

The Internet is not the only thing changing our day-to-day lives. There’s also a growing multicultural element, with traditions from different countries gradually bringing new customs into our lives.

Ethnic objects or pieces from far-off cultures – often combined with more traditional accessories – are more and more common in our homes and in what we wear.

Simultaneously, new holidays and special occasions are an opportunity to fill the rooms of our homes with decorations, to decorate shops with colourful elements and to partake in the pleasure of getting together with friends and family.

Therefore, this edition of Homi is sure to be full of inspirations, moving from past to present, and will be more open and multicultural than ever.

Homi will return from January 27-30, 2017, at Fiera Milano. www.homimilano.com
