Running from September 3 to 5, the annual showcase in Copenhagen reveals resonant new themes in interior design.

Perfectly embodying the country’s wider ethos, Denmark’s major design event is democratically open, eco-conscious, highly stylish—and influential far beyond Scandinavia. Given the enduring gravitas of Danish design, the forms, color palettes, and materials showcased around Copenhagen from September 3 to 5 are worth taking note of. Here’s our pick of seven trends spotted at this year’s 3 Days of Design that are set to make their mark on the mood of coming seasons.

1. Beds and Linens Cater to Superlative Sleep

With a good night’s rest becoming the ultimate luxury in 2020, bedrooms have cemented their status as the sanctums of our homes. From essentialist frames and faultless mattresses to buttery-soft sheets, perfecting the components that facilitate our rest and relaxation has become the mission of Nordic textile and bed specialists. Hyped linen label TELKA has recently moved into effortlessly chic sleepwear while Danish bed manufacturer Re Beds recently received “Iconic” status for its fuss-free frame at the German Design Awards, and bed maker Auping sparks delight with its witty frame and fabric color pairings.

 2. Environmentalism Fuses With Design DNA

Circular manufacturing will soon become the new baseline as sustainability gains a newfound momentum. Across Scandinavia, ever more brands are embedding environmental responsibility into their ethos from day zero. Taking its commitment to UN Sustainable Development Goals seriously, furniture maker Mater reveals the results of its pioneering waste-to-value production method: elegant seating made from recycled plastic rescued from the ocean. With its roots in the forests of Central America, emerging slow timber brand FORESTA makes its debut with a line of sustainable, sculptural furniture. In a similar vein, ca’lyah has forged connections with artisans and stonemasons in South India for its Boris Berlin–designed Tranquebar Collection of side tables and chairs, offering a new outlet for longstanding craft traditions.

3. Audio Aesthetics Strike a New Tone
