Feria Hábitat Valencia has already finalised the content of its 50th edition, to take place between 11-14th February 2014. The full display of furniture, decor, lighting, home textiles, office furniture and kitchens will now be distributed over the first floor of Feria Valencia’s four pavilion, due to the leading architecture and interiors fairs, Cevisama and Fimma-Maderalia, taking place concurrently.
Kitchens and lighting will now be a major feature, each with their own dedicated area, and there will be a substantial programme of complementary activities, workshops, exhibits and lectures going on in parallel with the four fairs that will make visiting a far more attractive proposition.
The scale of the international architecture, interior design and decor show is greater than anything before in Spain, according to organiser Feria Valencia.
Pavillion 1 will host the foremost home textiles manufacturers, in synergy with the leading, most exclusive brands of classic furniture and decor, which will be in the Haute Decor zone. This set-up will generate international business as well as attracting the interest of the contract sector, amongst others.

Pavilion 2, for its part, will be home to the most contemporary and up-to-the-minute interiors in a functional space where kitchens will have their own dedicated area. Lighting is being staged alongside the kitchen section in a format that will facilitate engagement and stimulate business. This area will also accommodate a selection of contemporary furniture manufacturers in a kind of anteroom to the contemporary interiors section in pavilion 4.
Design will be on show in pavilion 3. The top brands of Made in Spain design are displayed at Feria Hábitat Valencia exclusively, and these manufacturers will share space with Flash, an innovative exhibition format that showcases international companies that are at the cutting edge of design.
Furniture, accessories and the latest in decor will all be found in the Contemporary section in pavilion 4, the main meeting point and business platform for these sectors. Bedrooms, living rooms and furniture and accessories for children’s rooms will together form a comprehensive offering for a market that is constantly on the move in terms of new products and designs.
As well as this comprehensive review of all that the various sectors and styles of interiors currently have to offer, Feria Hábitat Valencia will once again host the Nude show, a popular display of innovation and design.
Nude has already published the terms and conditions for submitting entries for this year’s show, which is open to young designers both Spanish and international, schools of design, and design and manufacturing companies that have been in business for less than five years.
Feria Hábitat Valencia’s director, Máximo Solaz, says: “From what we are hearing from the various business sectors we are in touch with on an ongoing basis, the expectations for this next fair are modestly optimistic.”
“With Feria Hábitat Valencia running alongside Cevisama and Fimma-Maderalia there are some very powerful synergies bring generated that make everyone a winner – both visitors because of the breadth of the offering, and exhibitors, who are seeing the status and profile of prospective customers improve even further, especially those from the international marketplace.”
