Interior Lifestyle Tokyo is preparing for its 24th edition, scheduled to be held from 4-6th June 2014 at Tokyo Big Sight. Interior Lifestyle Tokyo is one of Asia’s leading consumer goods fairs, its concept based on two of Messe Frankfurt’s largest annual fairs – Ambiente and Heimtextil. Through Messe Frankfurt Group’s global network, Interior Lifestyle Tokyo has established itself as a valuable platform and destination for buyers and sellers involved in the worldwide consumer goods industry.

In 2013, the fair welcomed a record-breaking 705 exhibitors – 473 domestic and 232 overseas from 32 countries and regions – reflecting the show’s international popularity. There were 25,456 visitors from 35 countries and regions in total, searching for the latest high-end design products, trends and new lifestyle ideas. Many exhibitors expressed their satisfaction by commenting that they met many visitors with strong interest in their premium quality items.

The 2014 edition of Interior Lifestyle Tokyo is planning further highlights and events. The atrium highlight has proved one of the most popular showcases at this fair, presenting themed exhibits. The theme for 2014 is Welcome to my home!, aiming to suggest ideas and styles for various gatherings and other social occasions through exhibited items such as kitchenware, food and beverage, designer furniture, electronics, textiles and other decorating items. This area will introduce visual store displays, which will act as an inspiration for creating attractive retail interiors.

Another highlight will be Japan Style, a zone that introduces designer products reflecting ‘real’ Japanese culture. The exhibited products here will not only highlight traditional Japanese beauty, but also reflect authentic and modern Japanese culture.The Next and Talents areas are also must-see showcases that offer business opportunities to young talented designers and entrepreneurs.

IFFT/Interior Lifestyle Living, a second successful international event that follows Interior Lifestyle Tokyo, will take place from 6-8th November 2013, also at Tokyo Big Sight. Displaying high-end interior design products, it is held each year during the autumn season.
