“Spring Summer 2021 trends foster a holistic sense of wellbeing; from incorporating art and calming rituals into the everyday, through to the smart home becoming as humane and sensorial as possible. Maximalism is on the rise, now going hand in hand with an increased eco-consciousness evident in all design trends for Spring Summer 2021. Homemakers embrace colour and light as well as bolder patterns, textures and shapes to create an optimistic and stimulating atmosphere. Naturally sustainable materials and dyes continue to grow in popularity, whilst innovative cradle-to-cradle concepts provide newness.”  – Alina Schartner, Creative Trend Editor

“Connectivity underpins all four Baby and Kid’s stories for Spring Summer 2021. Families focus on their community, loved ones and emotions in a bid to take ownership and live a wholesome and considered life. This manifests in the home in a number of ways this season; through playful colour and quirky characters; and creating an expressive, modern aesthetic which counterbalances with soothing spaces where natural materials and organic forms help calm and relax little ones.” – Ruth Kelly, Head of Baby and Kids

Sustainability is now a mainstream concern for consumers at all levels in the wake of Blue Planet II and the war on single use plastics, to more recent events such as the protests of Extinction Rebellion and the growing following of Greta Thunberg. Consumers are increasingly aware that their actions and the brands that they buy from have an impact on the environment.

An interest in sustainable materials is emerging as householders look for alternatives which address big picture sustainability issues such as water shortages, plastic waste and sustainable sourcing. In this blog post we explore five new sustainable materials set to emerge in the home.

 Totomoxtle

Fernando Laposse

Developed by designer Fernando Laposse, Totomoxtle is a new veneer material made with the husks of heirloom Mexican corn. In developing the material Laposse looked to address a number of issues including promoting food diversity, regenerating traditional Mexican agricultural practices, generating income for impoverished farmers and also climate change. To create the veneer the husks of over 60 varieties of corn – which would otherwise go to waste – are heated, flattened and glued by hand onto fibreboard and card to reinforce them. Ranging from deep purples to almost blacks and soft creams the beautiful resulting material can be used in various applications for interiors and furniture.

Solidwool

 Solidwool

Launched in 2013, the creators behind Solidwool, designers Justin and Hannah Floyd, emerged early in the exploration of alternative materials. Having moved to the southwest town of Buckfastleigh in England, a region which was once a thriving part of the woollen industry, the team learned about Herdwick wool. The coarse wool derived from hill farmed sheep – historically used in the UK carpet industry – saw a dramatic decline in demand and was seen as a by-product of sheep farming. The couple identified an opportunity to create a new material, combining protein fibres (Herdwick wool) with a bio-resin derived from waste streams in industrial processes such as wood-pulp and bio-fuel production. The result is a composite material similar to fibreglass which can be used for many applications including veneers, tableware and furniture.

Piñatex

Piñatex was developed by Dr. Carmen Hijosa as a sustainable alternative to animal or synthetic based leathers. Inspired by the principles of a Circular Economy and Cradle to Cradle values, Carmen was drawn to pineapple leaf fibre, an agricultural waste product. Long fibres are extracted from pineapple leaves in a process called decortication, these fibres are then degummed and undergo an industrial process to create a non-woven mesh. This mesh is transported to Spain where it undergoes a finishing process to give it a leather-like appearance. The material has been used as an alternative to leather in footwear and fashion accessories, clothing, interior furnishing and automotive upholstery.

Mycelium

Derived from fungi, mycelium is quickly becoming a popular material for designers and manufacturers alike. Fast-growing and easy to cultivate this versatile material can be designed to adopt properties similar to that of materials like leather, wood, stone and polystyrene. London based designer Nir Meiri has created a set of lamps using mycelium to create the light shades. The shades are created by placing paper waste inside a shaped mould before mycelium spores are inserted into it and left to grow under controlled conditions of temperature and humidity. The result is a lamp shade which creates a soft natural glow, perfect for creating ambience within the home.

Rammed Earth

Left to right: Noma & Paul Barbera, Hiha Studio, Briony Marshall, Hive Earth

Rammed earth is becoming an increasingly popular material alternative to concrete in the construction of homes and the built environment. Rammed earth is created by mixing soil with a variety of sand, gravel, clay or stabilisers such as lime or cement. The material is more sustainable than concrete because soil is so readily abundant and less energy intensive than concrete. Visually rammed earth produces a range of natural earthy shades which can be layered to create a stunning pattern and texture.

Investing in the development or use of sustainable materials will become increasingly important for brands as consumers move away from those who use traditional, environmentally damaging materials.

Amidst the unpredictability of our political, economic and environmental landscapes, emerging stories within popular culture are pointing towards a more optimistic, diverse future. Searching for deeper understanding of themselves and the world around them, children and adults are creating positive connections through interaction, exploration and experimentation, driving a renewed appeal for creative and artistic expression.

In 2018, Trend Bible attended the Children’s Media Conference in Sheffield, where industry leaders, politicians, senior policy makers and change makers came together to discuss ‘what’s next for kids?’ Diversity was high on the agenda.

Connor Franta, Drag Queen Desmond 

Research explored everything from self-image and representation of LGBT storylines in children’s TV to acknowledging and celebrating difference within media and publishing. Although there is still a long way to go, refreshingly there are more communities from a range of backgrounds beginning to see themselves represented and have their voices heard, be that through product, stories or media platforms.

“It’s so important that your business is tracking cultural shifts, frustrations and behaviours in order to offer children and families relevant solutions. If you don’t anticipate and respond to change, you could be at risk.”  – Children’s Media Conference, 2018

As part of The Edit, we explored these emergent stories in diversity, many of which are driven by the younger generation to uncover some of the significant shifts, challenges and opportunities children’s industries will face over the coming years.

We’ll be heading to the 2019 Children’s Media Conference in July. The theme of the conference this year is Limitless. Make sure to follow our  Twitter and Instagram feeds for coverage of the show or for full insight and analysis subscribe to The Edit

Twice a year, we publish our Home & Interior trend books bringing unique and compelling stories to life and inspiring product ranges every season. The trend books are a distilled and physical expression of a large body of work which brings together a network of creative experts across different industries and geographies, with their own individual specialisms. Like us, these experts are driven by a huge sense of curiosity to understand more about the future of life at home. One of our contributors is Stef Steen – a Colour and Trend specialist based in Hackney, London. We recently had the pleasure of working with Stef as we commenced forecasts for Autumn Winter 2021/22 at our Home Trend Panel.

Could you tell us a bit more about yourself?

I ran the womenswear colour department at Marks & Spencer for almost 10 years, prior to that I was Fabric Editor of International Textiles Magazine and Chairperson of the ICA (International Colour Authority). I now run my own Trend Consultancy in Hackney; working with interior designers, trend forecasting agencies and retailers in the UK and internationally. I’m also on the cusp of qualifying as a psychotherapist so I’m very attuned to what drives people’s behaviours and this infiltrates my trend work in quite a unique way. I’m also highly intuitive and very tuned into the zeitgeist but also living in Hackney is very helpful with this; often trends originate in Hackney or there are a lot of early adopters round here e.g. an increase in vegan produce in the local stores started happening at least 10 years ago, now it’s a fully fledged trend.

What inspires you? Where do you find inspiration?

I have always taken a lot of my inspiration from art and artists as I think they are naturally ahead of the curve – during my student days in the early ’90s, I knew a lot of people studying fine art and they were all wearing vintage clothes, well before that trend hit the mainstream and the high street. I also have to confess I’m a bit of an Instagram junkie and follow lots of artists, designers, photographers and makers on it, I find these people and their work very inspiring. I love looking for inspiration when I’m out and about and then playing with adding palettes to my images. When you really start to look, interesting colour combinations are everywhere. Below is a bowl in my friend’s house and the picture on the right was a crate of apples I stumbled across whilst out for a coffee with a friend.

What are the key differences between trend forecasting for the fashion industry versus home and interiors?

I’d say with home and interiors forecasting, you need to be more mindful of societal trends in terms of people’s attitudes and behaviours, whereas with fashion – although those things are important – there is also a huge awareness of what’s happening in the celebrity world, music & musicians, influencers, street style and catwalk. Trends are more instantaneous in fashion so even though you can predict how a season will look in advance, there will always be ‘close to season’ updates or tweaks.

How did you get into specialising as a colour trend forecaster? What do you enjoy most about working with colour and trends?

Whilst studying for my degree in woven textile design I was very philosophically inclined and interested in telling a story through my work. I was also very good at the initial stages of design work e.g. moodboards and sketchbooks. I loved the trend forecasting publications in the college library and the idea of becoming a forecaster seemed a good choice for my skill base. When I graduated I started freelancing at trend forecasting agencies. In the first studio I worked in, I was fascinated by the discussions on colour and although very junior, my insights were appreciated by the team. Then a full time job came up at International Textiles magazine which involved chairing the ICA and producing their seasonal forecast. I think it’s a privilege to work with colour as it’s so beautiful and the possibilities are endless with it. It also really enhances people’s lives which inspires me – who doesn’t feel happier when wearing a colour they love?

What did you enjoy most about participating in the Trend Panel?

I loved the sharing of our ideas and how everyone’s approach was so unique. It was also a really friendly atmosphere and it was good to discuss the future with some brilliant minds!

Having had years of experience within the industry, what tip would you give for forward thinking?

Be extremely curious. Don’t take things at face value – always question things and wonder about the ‘why’. In trying to establish the ‘why’ you’ll often get valuable insights into how a trend will progress. Think creatively about problems –  if we continually look for creative solutions to climate change as opposed to letting it overwhelm us and keep us stuck it could give birth to a very exciting new age of creativity.

Design students across the UK are currently gearing up for graduate design show New Designers 2019. Showcasing the work of 3,000 graduates, the show is split into two parts. Part 1 focuses on fashion, textiles, jewellery and craft while Part 2 is directed towards product design, exhibiting furniture, graphic and motion design. With some of the biggest companies due to attend, New Designers puts graduate talent in the spotlight, providing a stepping stone to potentially join worldwide brands and retailers.

Here’s our preview of the designers we are looking forward to seeing at this year’s show which kicks off on the 26thJune at the Business Design Centre London.

Sara Preston – Rejuvenating Design for Everyday Life

Visualisations by Sara Preston

Sara Preston is a multidisciplinary designer and maker from Durham and a graduate from the Glasgow School of Art.  Her carpet and rug collection showcases her love for colour and shape and informs a playful approach towards contemporary design, inspired by minimalist design movements and Bauhaus.

Tom Bryant – Digital Detoxing in the Home

Tom Bryant

Designed to challenge the normality of Millennials’ default smartphone use, Loughborough University graduate Tom Bryant has developed ‘Koko’ an eco-system to help users form new habits, positively influencing their digital behaviours to encourage a more balanced digital lifestyle. The table lamp can only be activated by the user’s detachment from their smartphone allowing people to appreciate what’s around them, whilst reducing their screen exposure, alleviating needless scrolling and facilitating digital downtime.

Rachel Clay – Organic and Interchangeable Forms

Rachel Clay

Stafford University 3D Design student Rachel Clay pushes the boundaries of traditional furniture and construction through her ‘Blobs’ collection. Inspired by organic designs, the free form shapes are completely interchangeable to suit the users’ need – whether it be for sitting, perching or even using as a table when stacked.

We will be attending Part 1 and Part 2 of New Designers, running 26th – 29th June and 3rd – 6th July 2019. Tickets for New Designers are available now.  Follow our Instagram feed as we track the best stands throughout the event and sign up to our Trend Updates for more show coverage.

Directional colour combinations at Studio Pepe

The fourth article from our Milan Design Week 2019 series is dedicated to the most prominent colour trends we spotted at Salone del Mobile and Fuorisalone. Here is our summary of the colours that will increase in importance for life at home.

Fuchsia

Left to Right: Envisions, Pushe Design, Markus Hangartner, Normann Copenhagen, CC Tapis, Base Milano

Fuchsia tones were the newest colour trend we spotted at Milan Design Week which we expect to see grow in importance. Shades ranging from matt soft magenta to shimmering mid-toned purple were chosen as highlight colours by a number of directional brands. We have monitored these shades as they have slowly been building momentum over the last few seasons. Several examples seen at Maison et Objet, Paris, earlier this year give weight to the wider spread evident in Milan.

Citric Yellow

Left to Right: Vitra, Studio Pepe, Yuue, Normann Copenhagen, Swedese, Campana Brothers

The sunny Gen Z yellow prominent at Milan Design Week 2018 has evolved into sharper, slightly more green tinged yellow hues. Citric nuances draw attention to furniture and surface design. Weak signals hinting towards a rise of fluorescent shades were noticeable, particularly at Salone Satellite – Salone del Mobile’s platform for emerging designers. On a more commercial level, subdued, calmer yellows from ochre to buttery hues continue to stay relevant for home and interiors.

Terracotta

Left to Right: Custhom, Arper, Baxter, Normann Copenhagen

With Millennial pink and salmon shades now decreasing, we see baked shades increasingly driving colour direction. Terracotta nuances spanning from chalky pink to powdery burnt orange move from accessories to product design on a large scale, informing everything from modular sofas and wall colours through to office furniture. Matt colour finishes dominate, however juxtaposing matt and glossy textures will become a stronger trend in the years to come.

Soft Red

Left to Right: Artifort, Normann Copenhagen, Studio Marfa, Saki

Reds have a slightly muted, gentle quality this season. Soft, yellow based reds are another example of a general shift towards warmer shades. Combinations with oranges, baked shades and warm neutrals are popular.

Less Predictable Colour

Left to Right: Valeria Riabko, Instituto Politecnico de Viseu, Studio Tinus, Dirk van der Kooij, Saki, Enis Akiev

With rising environmental concern, we see more and more designers and brands experiment with eco-friendly colourations in a number of ways. Organic, plant and mineral based dyes are revived. Product design cherishes the materials’ naturally inherent colour differences and recycled materials are merged, offering unique variegation. All three approaches embrace an element of surprise. Instead of rigorous colour matching to coded industry standards, beauty is found in the less predictable. This mindset will disrupt major perceptions of colour – from light resistance to appreciating the coincidental and imperfect.

Our bi-annual Home & Interior Trend Books provide comprehensive design direction for products across colour, shape, material, print and pattern. Download a Trend Book demo by clicking the ‘Free Download’ button on this post.

One in six Americans now own at least one form of voice activated technology. As children grow up with personal AI assistants and home devices, we expect voice-controlled toys and audio entertainment products to become part of our everyday lives.

Searches for audio storytellers grew 126% on Pinterest in 2018 and the number of children with access to a smart speaker increased by 63%. With the younger generation expected to be the quickest to adopt voice activated technology, it’s important for brands to innovate now to get ahead of the curve.

Audio’s natural strength in storytelling makes the format inherently appealing to children. It also offers a solution for parents who are increasingly looking for options to balance the amount of screen time their children access daily. For many parents, audio entertainment such as podcasts are a guilt-free alternative and a more engaging option over YouTube binging or hypnotising mobile games.

“Podcasts are referred to as a ‘slow medium,’ unlike rapidly edited TV, ultra-short YouTube videos, Facebook and Twitter clickbait. People listen to podcasts in total peace and quiet, at times they choose to listen.” – Jocelyn De Kwant, Flow Magazine

Over the coming years, screen free entertainment will open up significant opportunities for the toy and entertainment industry. From enhancing the story time experience and assisting parents during everyday routines, to creating new ways for children to consume content in and outside of the home.

The move from digital screens to voice recognition opens up opportunities for integrated and seamless technology for children. It’s no longer digital versus physical, the blend of the two will be key to maximising family entertainment.

This is an extract taken from ‘The Power of Sound,’ a report exclusive to those signed up to our Baby & Kids subscription service, The Edit.

Trend Bible by Rebecca Charlton - 1M ago

This Father’s Day we continue to see modern-day values and interests influence gift and greetings. There is a particular focus on mindfulness, as the health and wellbeing sector continues to boom. The modern-day father is captured through musical nostalgia and we saw an increasing number of brands and retailers offer more inclusive cards, moving away from gender stereotypical sends. Here’s our highlights on what’s new for Father’s Day 2019.

TAKING CARE Left to Right: Asda, Prezzybox, Oliver Bonas, postable

Responding to the desire to connect with nature and explore the great outdoors, we see messaging focus around adventure and spending quality time together. Brands are recognising the meaningful bond between father and child, whilst also reminding us of the importance of switching off and taking care of ourselves.

MUSICAL NOSTALGIALeft to Right: Morrisons, John Lewis, postable, papier, Paperchase

Print and messaging draws on a nostalgia for retro turntables, radio and music classics. Messages such as ‘Dad you’re a classic’ and ‘You rock Dad’ brings an effortlessly cool update to Father’s Day sends as well as capturing the interests of modern-day fathers.

MODERN UPDATESLeft to Right: Hallmark, Notonthehighstreet, PaperSource, easy, Notonthehighstreet 

Traditional gender norms that once moulded our sense of masculinity are being challenged and given new meanings. Following this we see an increase in botanical foliage illustrations, offering a modern update to the rustic, often masculine aesthetic of outdoor inspired sends.

Trend Bible by Rebekah Hutchinson - 1M ago

In our Indoor Oasis, the Rise of the Houseplant post we explored how houseplants have become a key way to decorate and style the home. Whilst the trend for greenery in the home still has longevity, an appetite for dried flowers and grasses is emerging.

Moving away from minimalism and grey colours in the home, we see warmer, more naturally inspired colour gain popularity. These warmer neutrals bring a relaxed and homely feel to interiors. Dried flowers and foliage add to this relaxed feel, with their seemingly incidental compositions and loosely gathered branches, flowers and grass.

Image Left to Right: Almostmakesperfect, Zerosociety

As consumers are gaining a heightened awareness of sustainability, they are craving products with more longevity. Dried flowers and pampas grass are an eco-friendly alternative to plastic and real flowers – they retain their look and even get better with age.

Images Left to Right: Olga Prinku, Valentina Zuendel

With dried flowers growing in popularity, we are seeing designers embedding them into their work. Embroidery artist, Olga Prinku uses organic material as her thread, trapping dried flowers on tulle fabric to create beautiful pieces of embroidery art. Interior and product designer, Valentina Zuendel showcased her new lighting collection at Milan this year, encapsulating dried petals between milky panes of glass.

We expect to see this trend continue to build momentum into Spring Summer 2020 as forecast in our ‘Summer Home’ trend. Our Home & Interiors Trend Books are seen as an essential tool by some of the world’s best brands and retailers, helping them make sound commercial decisions about how to respond to future change. To receive a free demo click ‘download now’ to the top right of this post.
