Festive decoration trends introduced by Christmasworld

At Christmasworld, the international trade fair for festive and seasonal decoration held January 25-29 in Frankfurt am Main, four emotive styles that embody the range of festive decoration available will provide the retail trade with an exclusive tool for creating their own selections for the upcoming festive season in 2019/20.

The four thematic scenarios of the Christmasworld Trends reflect the important influences of some major designers and their preferences for materials, colors and shapes. Whether soft, natural, joyous or glamorous – the Christmasworld Trends for 2019/20 ‘tender festivities’, ‘essential ceremonies’, ‘sweet traditions’ and ‘luminous celebrations’ show retailers what the hot properties of tomorrow will be. Just as with new fashions, festive decorations also excite customers with new colors and materials and thus encourage them to buy.  Trade buyers will learn how they can best appeal to customers in the future – with up-to-the-minute knowledge of trends, products and elaborately staged presentations.

Hand-worked items and ideas imported from nature remain a key focus. Alongside poetic and sensitive designs are glamorously styled settings and some really original decorative ideas. “The four thematic scenarios of the Christmasworld Trends reflect the important influences of some major designers and their preferences for materials, colours and shapes,” explains designer Annetta Palmisano from Stilbüro bora.herke.palmisano.

Tender festivities: festive decoration has a clean, reductionist impact, playing with unusual shapes and surfaces. The colors range from pale pastel and neutral, purist shades to a cool gold.


Essential ceremonies: naturalness and modernity meet raw, rustic aspects. There is a predominance of earthy, warm tones and a matcha green.

Sweet traditions: decorations bubble over with wit and charm; shades of ginger bread, peach, nougat, bittersweet colors, strawberry ice, rum and raisin, coconut and evergreen whet the appetite for ever more color.

Luminous celebrations: vibrant colors, combined with elegant dark tones run into one another – together with iridescent surfaces, they create a spectacular setting.

The experts from Stilbüro bora.herke.palmisano will be giving Trend Talks every day during Christmasworld and will be there to explain the four style scenarios – from 25 to 28 January 2019 at 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., as well as on 29 January 2019 at 12:00 noon. Trend Cards will be available to visitors free of charge and can be obtained from the Christmasworld Trends information desk in Hall 11.0, Stand C 40.
