Christmas styling at Trends & Trade

Christmas styling inspiration points at Trends & Trade

 

Dozens of suppliers at Trends & Trade are offering collections that are right on trend. Our stylists, Marco & Inez, have taken products from these suppliers and transformed them into inspiration points at Trends & Trade, giving you maximum inspiration for your Christmas collection! You’ll find these inspiration points at the entrance by the desk and in the coffee corner, and the restaurant itself has been styled to fit this Christmas Sparkle trend.

 

 

Styling tips!

A styling tip from stylist Marco

Invest in an eye-catcher
Take the plunge and invest in an eye-catcher! What that is? A large, striking item – in or in front of your store – that’s screaming out to be photographed and is a perfect way to raise your profile both online and offline. Why not then also top it off by writing your store’s hashtag (#yourstore) on a board, position it near your eye-catcher and then repost the photos posted to achieve maximum publicity?

 

‘Christmas catcher’
Marco says: “When I still had my own store, I used to display a large, striking figure in it to create the atmosphere I wanted to achieve. Customers always ended up asking me whether it was for sale, so I knew that I’d make back the money I’d spent on it at the very least. It was always guaranteed to generate a lot of attention, photos and a great atmosphere!”

 

CK Beelden has a whole range of interesting eye-catchers!
The CK Beelden (F2.04) and CK Kerst (F1.01) stands are a good place to start for anyone looking for striking Christmas items. The carousel reindeer is Marco’s personal favourite!

Christmas tips from stylist Inez

A beautifully set Christmas table
Christmas wouldn’t be Christmas without an extensive dinner and no Christmas dinner would be complete without the right table decorations. So, everything that anyone could need to create a festive table has to be a vital part of any Christmas collection! Opt for stylish (golden) cutlery, glitter confetti and Christmas-themed tableware to create an elegant and luxurious dining experience. Last but not least, what better finishing touch than Waxine candle holders and serviettes in stylish designs?

Colours for this year’s Christmas trend

Gold is clearly going to be a prominent colour this Christmas, while white is an ideal contrast colour.

Amazona has new chalk paint colours

The Amazona Architect Collection®: DUIKER: a colour palette inspired by the designs of architect Jan Duiker

 

Amazona introduces a unique chalk paint collection: The Amazona Architect Collection®! This collection consists of characteristic colours used by inspirational architects. As a tribute to Jan Duiker, the Dutch architect who designed the unique Sanatorium Zonnestraal which is a listed building, Amazona has created the special Duiker-palette. Inspire your customers with these eco-friendly products and techniques that help you breathe new life into old furniture!

 

amazona kleurenpaletkwast duikergeel

Colourful inspiration

Jan Duiker was an important part of the ‘Nieuwe Bouwen’ architectural movement in the Netherlands. This colour palette was inspired by the Zonnestraal concept which he designed. The concrete building is characterized by slim steel window rebates and a great deal of glass. The window frames were painted a specific type of blue called Duiker blue.

The autumn trend for 2017: Stationery Living

Get inspired by the autumn trend for 2017: Stationery Living

 

sfeerbeelden-header-trendstrade-trends-najaar-2017-stationaryliving-foto nb

 

This autumn, Trends & Trade will present a trend in home, gift, and garden that you won’t want to miss: Stationery Living. We live in a time where the boundary between home and work is becoming more and more blurred. Few people still need an office to do their work – the kitchen table will do just fine. The functions of offices, factories, shops, and homes are changing, they’re becoming more flexible and multifunctional.

 

The trend translates effortlessly into ideas for all sorts of purposes: a window display for an interior, a gift or flower shop, a presentation in a shop space, or inspiration for a stylish autumn collection.

A sneak peek at the new trend for autumn

A little foretaste of what’s to come!

 

Although it’s the midst of summer, we are already working hard on the trend for autumn. Our styling team is always busy thinking ahead and spotting the latest trends, so that we can inspire you to present your customers with a top selection of seasonal products. Here is a sneak peek of the trend for this autumn: Stationary Living.

 

Private life and work are increasingly being combined. The flexible way of working is becoming part of our living environment more and more and this has an impact on the look of living spaces. We don’t all need factories or offices to do our jobs; sometimes the kitchen table is all the work space we need. Now, the look and feel of our interiors are being adapted to that new function.
