Take a look at the photo report

28.000 visitors from 113 different countries at spoga+gafa 2024

The past few days in Germany have not only been dominated by the European Championships, but also saw the largest trade fair for the garden sector. 1799 companies from all over the world took part in spoga+gafa in Koelnmesse (Cologne). It is not a record, but the organisation has reported that there have been a total of 28,000 visitors in three days.

The Wonen360 team, the Dutch sister of InteriorDaily, visited the fair and made a photo report of the Belgian and Dutch exhibitors and spotted the newest trends.

Trends: from terra to recycled rice husk
For trend-spotters, there was plenty to see on the exhibition floor. The dividing line between indoor and outdoor is blurring more and more. We have reached a point where the difference is sometimes no longer even visible. Think, for example, of models from the new label innsout, Arocca or SUNS.

In terms of colours, terra(cotta) dominated, as seen at Applebee and Lesli Living, among others. But cheerful, summery colours were also common. Rogon and Goods by Goedegebuure were good examples. Bright yellow or light blue are no exception within these collections. Bold prints and patterns on cushions are also allowed again, as was seen on the WOW Outdoor stand.

The trend of using organic shapes also continues. Luca Lifestyle also accepted this trend, while they normally only show symmetrical designs. The same goes for Bouclé; not new, but still very popular. 4 Seasons Outdoor used this in its new collection, consisting of 36 models.

Of course, sustainability is still a major trend. Almost everyone is working on making their collections more eco-friendly. Some examples: flower pots made of recycled rice husk (Capi Europe), baskets made of recycled plastic waste from the sea (Van der Leeden) and bamboo pots from Edelman BV's Because We Care collection.

Responsible Gardens
The theme of 2024 was Responsible Gardens. Under this central theme, the world's largest garden and barbecue fair focused on the responsibility it bears for current and future challenges and their solutions regarding the role the garden plays in society. Together with the green sector, spoga+gafa 2024 explored the different levels of responsible behaviour in and around green spaces, from the perspective of manufacturers, suppliers and consumers.
