Espritmeuble: The Showcase For Furniture Trends In 2018

By Christine Tan

Laetitia Faure, from the Urban Sublime agency, analyses the furniture trends in 2018 through the new products presented at the 6 th edition of ESPRITMEUBLE. On the programme this year: flexibility, mobility, poetry and the wow factor.


The furniture is modulable, multi-use and adaptable for small spaces, and is designed to make daily life easier and save space.

This colour block desk from Leaderbed conceals a real bed. The desk disappears leaving the night section, but keeps everything on the work top. No longer any need to put things away before going to bed.

The Icaro table from Altacom is extra easy to store. This piece of furniture in melamine can slide behind a door using the ingenious ultra-flat system. Design yes; but also very efficient.


No more uniform products, design is enjoying itself and restoring standards!

At Glicero’ Chaves Italiano, bunk beds are offset for more fun and a friendly feel. The brand has even paid attention to our children’s feet by adapting the width of the ladder for greater smoothness and safety.
Akante offers a marble effect rectangular ceramic table which, when rotated, becomes round. A product that satisfies all demands.


Amusement has made its long-awaited return to furniture. Reworked objects from Domitalia, very playful furniture from Antoine Motard or trompes l’oeil: the objects provide a playful dimension to our interiors to give us even greater pleasure.

The armchair for one from Fama in an XXL version, ideal for curling up on winter evenings.
A special mention to Salcedo Mueble and its ultrathin, bright lamp fixed to the side of the chest of drawers.


Poetry makes its presence felt by subtle little touches to create a romantic atmosphere.

This armchair from Luis Silva shows wonderful expertise with its kaleidoscope print and its simple, but sophisticated shape. The silversmith’s work on the velour celebrates its major comeback.
At Antoine Motard Baudelaire’s words are engraved on the tables. Luxury, calm and voluptuousness...


The town of Matera, part of UNESCO World Heritage, will become the European Capital of Culture in 2019. To celebrate this event Calis, originally from Matera, has decided to celebrate his town by printing its scenery on his tables and furniture. Here are several views of the town beautifully engraved for eternity or almost.


Last but not least amongst the trends, colour has made a big comeback! In red leather colour block for Egoitaliano
or in mix and match mode at Miss Carat: these strongly applied colours are a statement of our identity and our
moods in grand format.
