Dining Trends- Ambiente Look Book

Dining Trends, VilleroyUndBoch, on www.CourtneyPrice.comFrankfurt on the brain… and The Dish On Dining Trends

Today is one of those unusual days where Dallas is actually cold. Even icy… how bizarre to think that it was warmer in Frankfurt last week when I was there for the Ambiente Show. Southerners do NOT know how to drive in cold weather – where I grew up, flurries could shut the city down. Here, a little slush and ice equate to closed schools and businesses. Nothing like New England, but still to be taken seriously.

 So… I have been pouring over photographs from the show, enjoying my favorite finds all over again from the comfort of my office. My bucket list has been amended to now include dishes.  Let’s be frank: I need more storage and lots of it if I plan to have all of the dishes I would like to entertain with. I will warn you now that this post is photo heavy, so I plan to keep quiet while you peruse my favorite dining finds from Ambiente Show. You can thank me now for giving you a VISUAL tour; just walking the halls to find these items might log an easy 5-7 miles onto your jawbone or fitbit – I kid you not. The odds are good that your most comfortable business attire shoes are no match for this tradeshow track meet.  The show is enormous – so big that it even has a dedicated stop on the S-Bahn – 4,800 vendors – and over 140,000 attendees. Ambiente is the biggest kitchen, household and table trade show in the world (and the 3rd biggest trade show in the world in general). It occupies what I will call a campus of interconnected buildings with moving walkways to help get you to your next destination.  The U.S. was Ambiente’s partner country this year, so Ambiente wisely partnered with Veronika Miller of Modenus – which is how I got invited. Lucky me to be part of such a great group.

So… what did we see in Frankfurt? Frankly, a LOT. [Read more…]

New York Here I Come! I am packing my bag to go cover the Modenus BlogTour crew as they experience a carefully curated inside look at design in NYC.
