Woven Heart by Rosendahl on the Christmas Table

When the year comes to an end, we look forward to the most beautiful of all holidays. In this blog post, we will show you how to celebrate Christmas 2018 in style with trendy decorations. Discover the colours, materials and designs that will make the holidays more than perfect.

Christmas 2018 will be modern and elegant with gold and white as well as blue and green accessories. For striking highlights: The classic red is back. Materials such as marble, precious metals and glass have an elegant effect - even though many Christmas tree decorations and decorative objects are in themselves shapely and playful. Three major styles are recurring this year.

The Trending Styles for Christmas 2018

All in all, Christmas decorations depends on contrasting combinations. This allows you to create new, inspiring decorations that suit you and your interior style.

Elegant and Traditional - for a Festive Atmosphere

Gold tones and brass convey a feeling of festivity, especially at Christmas time. Dark colours such as dark blue and green tones make the precious metals shine while white and cream tones create a modern setting.

Traditional manufacturers such as Holmegaard and Georg Jensen are relaunching their traditional Christmas tree collections. The Christmas tree balls from Holmegaard as well as the Christmas Collectibles are not to be surpassed in elegance.

Other designers and brands place precious metals combined with strong tones or rustic materials in a modern context. Daniel Debiasi and Federico Sandri, for example, combine the filigree brass mesh with Teflon-coated stainless steel for the Collar tealight holder from Stelton, as is typical for the Collar series. The result is a noble yet modern object.

Functional and Modern - Christmas for Scandi Fans

What's this style about? Making an impression with the essentials. There are no unnecessary ornaments or wild colour and material mixes. Straightforward functionality is the credo. You will be rewarded with a consistently calm and harmonious appearance. This style relies on understated tones - from pure white to bright red gold and cool shades of grey and blue to deep burgundy and black.

Stelton, Kähler and ferm Living are known for simple objects without superfluous decoration. These manufacturers create Christmas flair through the choice of materials and discreet colour combinations - always taking the Scandinavian design tradition into account.

The new creation of Iittala's famous Christmas ball - a collector's item and a wonderful Christmas present - also fits harmoniously into this restrained style. On the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Ultima Thule designs, this year's pattern is inspired by Tapio Wirkkala's striking decor.

The Ultima Thule pattern is inspired by the natural beauty of Scandinavian nature and its fine lines remind us of the melting of glacial ice in the far north. Perfect for your personal winter wonderland!

We are not banishing red completely from the Christmas parlour this year either. Instead: Use simple colours and intricately cut and decorated glass. Combined in this way, you create a modern arrangement that has nothing in common with the sumptuous red-green decoration of bygone days.

Opulent - Luxurious and Cosy

Refined textiles, velvet, lace, gemstones, pearls, marble, metallic surfaces and dark woods - bring out everything that the matter-of-fact modern style forbids. The materials appear exquisite and precious, the decor exuberant. Dark, full colours create a velvety base for warm metal tones.

Alessi's Faberjori Christmas tree baubles are also opulent - a design by Marcello Jori, who was inspired by the famous Fabergé decorative eggs of the Russian goldsmith Peter Carl Fabergé. The beautifully decorated jewels were presented to the wives of the tsars at the end of the 19th century as an Easter present.

The Italian manufacturer also introduces the colour blue into the Christmas season - with its hand-painted Blue Christmas pendants and Blue Christmas tree baubles.
