Mood Spaces @ DOMOTEX 2023
With the Mood Spaces, 5 renowned international designers provide an insight into their designed room scenarios, which include current living trends and inspiration.
CAPAROL ICONS adds a pop of colour: as an official partner, the company provides our interior designers with sustainable premium paint for their Mood Spaces.
The DOMOTEX keynote theme "FLOORED BY NATURE" is taken up and brought into focus, expressing the interplay between floor and wall on the one hand and carpet, decorative fabrics and furniture on the other.
These installations serve, among other things, as inspiration for the specialist trade and, in the sense of "concept store" formats, show which products in combination can represent a theme world.
The Mood Spaces are located together with the Carpet Design Award Forum in the "Rugs area" in Hall 2.
