Schattdecor decorations: tomorrow's trends on show at Sicam 2018

Decorations, solutions for furniture and floors, classic and innovative surfaces in the Finish and Impregnated Surfaces sectors, surfaces with 3D optical effect: Schattdecor will also present this year to Sicam its new designs and innovations according to trends in the design sector in Italy .

So, by studying and analysing the new lifestyles and understanding how they affect the shape and functionality of living spaces, workplaces, furnishings and accessories, the company annually develops a Trend Book in which it illustrates the trends of tomorrow's furniture giving to designers and architects a precious orientation in terms of design, materials and colours.

“Visitors to our stand - Claudia Küchen, Marketing, Design and Communication Director, - will be able to experience directly how multidimensional lifestyles, the change in life concepts and the mix of free time and work are shaping new trends. The world is changing rapidly, and we must evolve too“.

And Klaus Müller, Sales Manager for Impregnated Surfaces, adds: “Thanks to our display areas and panels, we not only launch impulses to visitors to the fair, but also give us certainty in choosing the designs for furniture or floors of the near future“.


The new trendy designs

Schattdecor's motto is “One Source, Unlimited Solutions“ and indeed the company with its vast expertise in the field of surfaces, provides a wide range of specific products from the natural-looking print to the bright impregnated paper up to finished product. For the decoration of the surfaces, more than 1000 decors are available in the Digital Visions and Hybrid Classics collections, as well as a large portfolio of solid colours.

Among the novelties that Schattdecor will present at Sicam we mention “Ventura Chestnut“, an elegant and universal furniture design that responds to the demand for decorative structures with an extremely natural look. On the other hand, the “Neapolis“ design is very particular, a classic structure in oak wood, in which tiles and graphic elements are integrated, which recall the trend, which is very widespread today, for the ceramic floors and walls of more rustic environments.

Another trend, taken at the last Salone del Mobile in Milan and which couldn’t escape the Schattdecor design team, is the great role played by stone imitations in living spaces; the company interprets the style seen in Milan with its design “Mercurio“, responding to the trend towards dark stones with white veins. In this context, Schattdecor doesn’t see the use of stone only in kitchen worktops, but finds the interesting theme to be developed in other areas and nicely combined with wood.
