The beginning of March marks the yearly return of the Wohnen & Interieur fair, Austria’s leading show for interior design, home decorations and furniture design.
The annual event gathers some 500 national and international exhibitors in the Messe Wien Exhibitions and Congress Centre, where it is set on an overall hall space of more than 55,000 square metres. With the exhibition centre located in the centre of Austria’s capital Vienna – renowned for its majestic and imperial atmosphere, its delicate sweets, the Fiaker
carriages and of course Mozart and Sissy – the stylish Wohnen & Interieur fair lures visitors by the thousands and with a much more modern approach than the traditional Viennese style.
Setting design trends
The show is known for setting design trends and the presentation of exhibitors is a look into the future of our homes and gardens. It boasts the latest colour trends, attractive shapes and materials, all beautifully made up into most amazing furniture, carpets – brightly coloured or even nude – chandeliers and other lighting ideas, marble floors, concrete kitchen, leather chairs and bathrooms or kitchens made of carved stone.
In 2017, the show featured new technological amenities, such as smart home appliances, as well as wooden furniture, floors, doors exemplarily finished by experienced carpenters the country is famous for. The vast exhibition space is carefully grouped in four sensory worlds. These clearly reflect the exhibition layout and help visitors to find their way around, appealing to each of the senses. This unique concept, including many new features, the huge selection of fine interiors and gardening ideas and the sheer choice ensure that a visit to the show will be a very special experience.
