All Eyes Were on The Design Events of Shanghai and Singapore – Design Shanghai and Design Week Singapore were two of the Best Events in March and they attracted attention to millions to these two locations, two of the Top Design Hubs in Asia.

 

Let’s start with Design Shanghai, Asia’s leading International Design Event. This year, Design Shanghai was, once again, one of the greatest Design Events in Asia! The aim of this Event was to gather the best of design, quality, and inspiration, as well as Asia’s most influential architects and interior designers. It hosted, once more, a wide selection from the world’s most established brands, talented local newcomers and many, many renowned galleries.

 

 

 

In the 2019 Edition, this fair had the presence of 400 of the top and leading international and home-grown design brands and galleries. They presented all of their exciting and innovative ideas through extensive product launches, bespoke installations, and exclusive networking events. The top attractions were definitely some incredible names of the Asian Design World, like Caspani, Vismara or Domus Aurea!

 

 

 

Another top Asian Design Event that was held this March in Asia was the famous Singapore Design Week. The annual SDW brings together a collection of local and international design activities. This event is still happening until the 17th of March 2019, and it is open to the design community, businesses, design students, public sector officers, and the general public. But unlike Design Shanghai, the SDW it’s not a Commercial Event, but rather a Design Art event. It focuses more on Art Instalments and Art Products, so don’t expect to find at this Design Week some of the biggest luxury brands of the planet!

 

 

Still, SDW is one of Asia’s premier design festivals for art lovers. The SDW champions design thought leadership by bringing together the design, business and public necessities and presenting them all to the latest innovation and solutions to build businesses, engage communities and enrich people’s lives through the passion of Art and Design. It is a hub where the best design talents and businesses from Singapore and Asia converge to be showcased to the world, but it’s also a platform where Singaporeans and visitors can experience the value of design through delightful activities.

 

 

This year, SDW promoted another incredible celebration of Art and Design! It was a huge success like the Design Shanghai event and we can’t wait for next year’s celebration!

The fact that the design company used demolished buildings to create “Barraco” helped them to find the reusable materials. They used old doors, windows, and other objects to bring an informal look to this unique and colorful bar.

The tropical-inspired interior was obtained by using the wood and white gravel which were on the floor and walls as models to sustain the interior design project. Another way they used to bring more of the tropical touch to it was applying plants, lighting and the individual way of seating (we are talking of course about the swings!).

There is a door made of wood and glass which leads to another area. The plants that hang above a bright yellow door turned into a hanging table bring a special feature: behind it, are even more swings as well as a second bar area. These bar interior design ideas are sure to make you want to bring your home bar inspiration: a light you’ve never needed.

Today we’re going to talk about some upcoming trends in interior design for 2019…. With an Asian touch! These are the Ultimate Asian Interior Design Trends for 2019!

You may also like to read: How to Create an Asian Inspired Interior Decoration?

An “Asian Zen” design style is a good option if your goal is to create a calming decoration where you can shelter yourself from the stresses of daily life. When it comes to the furniture Natural Materials are a must! For example, in the flooring, you can consider bamboo flooring planks or even a stone flooring in the kitchen or bathroom.

Clean lines, specifically basic shapes such as squares, rectangles, or circles are one of the golden rules in this style of decoration. Something which usually looks good in a living room is low coffee tables (like Lapiaz Center Table by Boca do Lobo in the image above) or even block-shaped sofas, for example. Also, simple lines as a decorative element usually do the trick!

Good lighting is a must in Asian decoration which is why you should promote the entrance of as much natural light as possible. At nighttime, however, you can opt by sculptural lighting choices which will help grant a unique elegance to the rooms.

When it comes to the coloring of the rooms, whites and soft neutrals are the ideals for wall coverings and large pieces of furniture (especially in the sofas). Asian decoration in general as a matter of fact usually demands color palettes of tones that don’t awake too many stimuli. After all, home is supposed to be your personal sanctuary, right? However, we have a little secret for you: golden is also a good color in Asian decoration as you can see from this image with the Manuka Center Table by Brabbu (as seen above)!

Have you heard about the concept of Feng Shui? You should really look into it especially if your goal is to create a balanced type of decoration in your bedroom. Some simple tips involve: using calming hues, using a minimalistic decoration by decluttering and adding a natural-like decoration.
