Exhibitions in Switzerland for Home & Lifestyle

In 2024, Switzerland’s home décor and lifestyle industry is poised to generate an impressive $783 million in revenue. While this may seem modest compared to the United States’ $35,440 million, the per capita revenue in Switzerland stands out at US$88.46, which signals the nation’s robust appetite for high-quality furnishings. The sector is characterized by an emphasis on exceptional craftsmanship, minimalist design, and sustainability. Swiss consumers have always gravitated towards modern and minimalist home décor, which has been a hallmark of the popular Scandinavian aesthetic that has swept across the world. In fact, global design preferences today tend to prioritize simplicity and functionality. In Switzerland, there is a strong demand for versatile furniture and accessories that blend seamlessly into various interior styles. The Swiss market, known for its appreciation of high-quality and durable products, mirrors a global shift where aesthetics and practicality go hand in hand. Consumers seek items that not only beautify their homes but also offer practical benefits. Quality and durability are also very important factors in making a purchasing decision. Swiss consumers are willing to invest in products that promise longevity. This preference for high-quality items is reflected in the success of local artisans and manufacturers who uphold rigorous standards of craftsmanship. Swiss brands continue to set benchmarks in the industry. The rise of online shopping has significantly influenced the home décor and lifestyle industry in Switzerland. The convenience, broad selection, and competitive pricing offered by online retailers have made them a preferred choice for many consumers. This shift was further accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, which saw a surge in e-commerce across all sectors. Traditional brick-and-mortar stores now face the challenge of adapting to this digital transformation. To remain competitive, these stores are enhancing their online presence, offering virtual showrooms, and leveraging social media to engage with customers more effectively.
