What is New for Christmasworld 2022?

The 2022 edition will take place as an an-person event with complementing digital services. The featured trends will be contemplative approach, spirited response, and heirloom feelings.
The contemplative approach focuses on nature. In this trend, materials take pride of place in the design. It also emphasises using renewable materials. Among them are the bark, jute, cork, wood, and grass in combination with metal, stone, and marble. The materials used are in their natural state. At most they are broken, woven, hewn roughly, or processed on a rudimental level. For this trend, tactile feel is vital. This leads to a combination of rustic surfaces and fine-polished, hand-caressing finishes. Such finishes emphasise the natural beauty of the material. Old craftsmanship undergoes a renaissance through this trend. This results in decorations made of clay and ceramics with a sandy, rough appearance. Designs and motifs receive their inspiration from nature. This includes leaves, acorns, bark, cones, fruits, and nuts. The colour palette focuses on restrained moods and tactile materials. Popular nuances are dark juniper berry, light green, and fawn brown. Red beech, matt green, moss, basalt green and warn, light stone shades are also popular.
Heirloom feelings is a trend that reflects gracefulness and poetry. This young and poetic style creates an optimistic perspective. It includes playful and artistic aspects. Among them are down-to-earth interpretations using delicate colours. This trend focuses on using cheerful and lively flora to striking effect. This style combines mille fleur, scattered flowers, blossoms and vines with frills. Fine graphic designs and chequered patterns are also used. The romantic tapestries serve as a foreground quotation from a golden era. Every aspect of the products in this trend reflects the joy of adorning. This applies to both festive decorations, gift wrapping papers, and greeting cards. The hue palette for this trend is of sensitive and optimistic tones. Such include velvety mouse-grey, delicate lime green, cloudy white, and dark topaz. Romantic rose, light almond, red, and soft, airy sky blue are also popular.
The spirited response trend focuses on sustainable solutions. The style focuses on unconventional solutions that emphasise circular economy and up/recycling. The designs within this style are handmade, creative, colour, uncomplicated and cheerful. Illustrative eye-catching designs and organic forms resembling the 1960s form a strong impact. Such elements are complemented by drawn or hand-written print motifs and childlike sketches. This creates vibrant combinations of everyday work with festive decorations. The palette is vivid shades blended with random melanges. Creative materials for new objects are formed via recycling. Such include paper waste turned into papier-mache and old fabrics into decorations.
