“Ongoing works area”, by the interior deisgner Rosa Sánchez.
For the fifth year it will again offer its “Ongoing Works Area”, an initiative promoted by the Spanish General Council of Professional Associations of Interior Decorators and Designers, in order to acknowledge the work by interior designers in the project creation process. This year, the renowned interior designer Rosa Sánchez has been invited to create a decoration project with products from the trade fair exhibitors, in an area reserved to this purpose in Hall 3, for High-End Decoration. This is an ideal moment for the designer to showcase her creative talent in the selection and integration of elements presented at the Trade Fair.
For this occasion she will recreate, as if it were a stage, Karen Blixen’s porch, inspired by the movie Out of Africa and by the main character, the Danish writer and entrepreneur Karen Blixen. The British colonial style provides a mixture of classic furniture with ethnic and other cultural elements, always creating an unpretentious, cosy and timeless atmosphere.
