Get inspired by the autumn trend for 2017: Stationery Living


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.

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 autumn 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 autumn’s Stationery Living trend.



the colour palette for this trend


Brown will dominate this autumn, alongside traditional favourites black and white. This autumn, brown – in every shade imaginable – is the new black! These colours make the perfect combination with fresh, light hues like yellow and light blue. Natural materials like leather, metal, and wood combined with the colours below really bring every presentation together.
