Lotta Agaton Trends exhibition at the Stockholm Furniture Fair 2017

Swedish stylist Lotta Agaton showcased an inspiring trends exhibition at this years Stockholm furniture fair (2017), named Contrasts. The exhibition highlighted Lotta’s view on the word ‘trend’ and how she expresses the concept of current trends within her styling.

“I don’t like the way we tend to use the word trend today. To me trends are more about tendencies in the society rather than the colour of the year. I believe that the world climate, politics and economy reflects and sets our needs also in interiors. After years with good economy and safety we have had right white spaces open for exposure, but when the world climate and economy gets more uncertain we immediately start to nest. In uncertain times we want out environment to be comforting and safe, and so our walls get darker and more embracing. 

Now I think we are getting ready to bring some positive feelings and hope in terms of colour and playfulness in our rooms whether they stayed bright or got dark.’ – Lotta Agaton

I agree with Lotta implicitly. This is part of the foundation of how expert trend forecasters work and a welcome relief that this renowned stylist is enforcing the message. Within this exhibition Lotta Agaton has styled six room sets that convey her message and jaw droppingly cool style.

    Beautiful photos! Totally agree with Lotta about trends and colours of the year, we should focus on how a space makes us feel. X

    Wow, this is stunning. Particularly interesting to see her take on colours for 2017. And now I’m contemplating where in my home I can find room for a plinth!

    […] now I have ideas. I was originally going to paint it millenial pink, but Hannah in the House posted this excellent summary of Lotta Agaton’s trend exhibit at least year’s Stockholm Furnit… and lo, now I am kind of thinking of a more Cabbage Rose kind of muted mauve color.  We’ll […]
