Imm Cologne, Germany, 2015

Having taken time out from visiting Imm Cologne in the past couple of years, a snap decision to hop on a plane to Cologne proved well worth the mad panic to find last-minute accommodation.

Cologne continues to be an excellent reflection of the many facets of the interiors industry, offering something for everyone. Certainly, there was plenty to keep the Mary Gannon Design team busy, from innovations by established manufacturers to sightings of big-name designers, including Sebastian Herkner and Shanghai based duo Neri & Hu.

What's more, we stumbled across a handful of new names, most notably Portuguese brand WEWOOD, which wowed us with its Scarpa and Casanova sideboards. Scroll down to see what else caught our eye in Cologne.
