As we move firmly into the second half of the decade, emerging design trends continue to reaffirm the focus on creating living spaces that are tailored to meet the needs of individuals. Trends are an undercurrent that should be kept in mind, but they shouldn’t prevail over the personal style.

Craftsmanship, customization, unique designs, noble materials still lie at the heart of the Spanish luxury furniture sector and bring exclusivity to pieces. Nevertheless, less formal aesthetics, unique finishes as well as new functionalities have taken the stage in new collections.
