Is it all about the shopping experience?

Sport shops are trying to increase the shopping experience by creating factitious environment, simular to the real world. Customers experience the same feelings and see the same things as when they practice the sport. Maybe it helps them to realize which things they need or want the most? Although it’s a great way to attract customers, in my opinion the setting provokes to do the sport rather than to buy stuff. The pictures below show you how two shops – Solid and Hudson Trail Outfitters Store – create these original settings.

Bring it inside

New trend: bring things that belong outside in your interior. Due to the urbanisation, more and more people are living in the cities. These people are longing for elements from the countryside and are searching for ways to bring them inside their homes. The images below show you how to realize this trend in your own house, I hope it can inspire you!
