Croatian Design Story – Ambienta Furniture Fair in Zagreb

This year’s Ambienta – International Furniture, Interior Decoration and Supporting Industry Fair, which took place from 09 – 13 October in Zagreb, Croatia, presented a Croatian design story as well as creative ideas from many other countries. I went sightseeing and took photos to show you design and décor trends and ideas from this Croatian trade fair.
