Showboom, trends in contact with street life

Trends often arise near the closest spaces to real life, and provide new insights to boost looks and roads to travel together. Under this perspective to unite reality with future from a street perpective, the Showboom initiative returns to the city of Valencia in upcoming weeks, getting in touch the latest trends in interior design, architecture and decoration with the Eastern Spain capital.

On 9-13 February, this initiative that coincides with the celebration of ‘See you in Valencia’ and the Fairs Cevisama, Habitat Valencia and Maderalia, will renovate landmarks that are deeply rooted in the everyday and history of the city, turning them into trendy exhibition spaces. Traditional buildings such as Mercado de Colón, San Pio V, Exhibition Palace, Old Mercado Tapinería, the Bancaja Cultural Center or the Cervello Palace will breath a new air for a week:
