ATLANTA, GA — Jaipur Living is changing the stakes in the home furnishings catalog game with the release of a large-scale newsprint publication at the spring High Point Market. Entitled Freedom Habitat, the company’s first-ever look book is less trend report than an entire movement fast gaining traction in the home décor category.

Shot on location with Jaipur Living’s own tribe of team members, as well as models, dancers and children all interacting with the brand’s rich portfolio of rugs, pillows, poufs and throws, Freedom Habitat welcomes spring with a fresh, fashion-forward aesthetic.
“The striking imagery of our Freedom Habitat look book speaks to the diversity of our team while embracing how truly unique and special a person’s individual style is,” says Asha Chaudhary, president of the fast-growing global lifestyle brand. “It’s a visual tour de force, with each evocative photograph unfolding as a story on the page.”

HANNOVER — It is a fast-moving world that we live in. A world of rapid digitalization and globalization. Among its many effects and manifestations, this increased pace of life is changing the way consumers behave, with products and services becoming increasingly personalized and individualized as people seek more and different ways of expressing self-determination and uniqueness. Co-creation is gaining new meaning as customers aspire to greater involvement in the creation and design process, which they are increasingly viewing as an added opportunity for self-expression. New and more sophisticated technologies are constantly emerging to meet this demand and provide ever more unique and personalized customer experiences. In recognition of this trend, the organizers of DOMOTEX, the leading trade fair for floor coverings, have chosen “UNIQUE YOUNIVERSE” as the keynote theme for the 2018 showcase which will take place January 12 to 15. The keynote theme will find concentrated expression in Hall 9, which will be home to a richly diverse and immersive world of experience that will serve as a central gathering point and source of inspiration for visitors. This area will comprise four distinct zones. In the “Flooring Spaces” zone, companies from the floor coverings industry will stage highly creative product showcases that reflect the keynote theme. The “Living Spaces” zone is where exhibitors will team up with partners from the interior design sector to craft inspiring spaces and innovative lifestyle realms. In the “NuThinkers” zone, students, young designers and startups will present the innovative projects they have developed on the topic of product and service individualization. And finally, the “Art and Interaction” zone will present the keynote theme of “UNIQUE UNIVERSE” in a sensory feast of exhibits from the worlds of art and design, paired with interactive multimedia displays.
