Beyond space: new opportunities for the home decoration sector
"Stay at home" has created a strong desire to 'stay outdoors', even without going out. Living spaces are becoming more fluid, outdoor and indoor spaces are becoming integrated, and the new living habits induced by the pandemic make outdoor spaces the new protagonists of living.
Companies in the sector have benefited from a growing interest in housing care, triggered by repeated lock-downs. A gradual return to normality facilitated by mass vaccinations on the horizon should enable the sector to recover.
Textile Designers: natural fibres, colour, fantasy and an open view of the world
