Trend Islands

Nordstil Trend Islands

The Nordstil Forum is suitably complemented by the curated Trend Islands, which are located in the immediate vicinity. These offer answers to the questions of how soritments can be staged in an exciting way and how unique shopping experiences can be created. Under two different mottos, this area offers visitors the latest trends and design concepts to encourage their customers to browse and buy.

Social Cocooning is all about coziness and conviviality. This trend island highlights the home and the cozy get-together and is therefore the perfect source of inspiration table decorations, candles and scented oils and home accessories. Soft colors such as beige, cream and taupe, as well as warm green and earth tones also provide relaxation. With the trend island Rather Enchanting provides the festive setting with shimmering, sparkling and dazzling decorations. Here you will find everything for magical moments: porcelain, glass objects, light glitter, textiles and room and table decorations. A play of strong color contrasts between white, pink, lilac and purple provide excitement and metallic gold and silver tones set festive, extravagant accents.

"The trend islands at Nordstil provide inspiration for the point-of-sale and show retailers very concretely how trends can be practically implemented in assortment and product design."

Susanne Schlimgen, Director Nordstil

"This season, the trend islands reflect the needs for the cold, dark season and for the upcoming festive season. My recommendation: a mix of different product groups. This awakens emotions and creates new buying impulses".
