As we get increasingly busier, we are less able to get out and about, especially over the pond, so such a report is really valuable for us to see individual products (and realise where they have come from!) as well as compare links between retailers and the ranges they have developed.”    - Talking Tables

Trade Show Reports: Milan Furniture Fair 2014

In preparation for our trip to Milan for Salone del Mobile next month we asked our Senior Trend Analyst Naomi Shedden what she was looking forward to seeing at the show.

“I love the playful interaction of shapes in these ‘Island’ units designed by Raw Edges for Caesarstone. The engineered quartz surfaces feature gaps for slotting in storage units, appliances and accessories rather than having these items placed on top – completely re–imagining the concept of the work surface.”

Check out their beautiful preview video of the installation designed for the show below.

Opinion: Distancing

Trend Bible memoryIn our trend research we’ve found increasing evidence of an over-reliance on technology being a catalyst for lots of new attitudes and behaviours in and around the home.

Modern technology helps us find the easy way to do things, which has its benefits and certainly plays to our innate desire for convenience, but are we out-sourcing some of the  most valuable neurological functions we have? Smartphones allow us to collectively store information ‘outside ourselves’ reinforcing the feeling that we’re distanced from our instincts and the aural indicators in our environment.

Talks and Events: The Future of Recreation

FOR_5Trend Bible host a range of inspiring Trend Briefings, inviting industry professionals to hear our exclusive forecasts for key areas of the Home and Interiors and Kid’s Lifestyle categories.

We are pleased to announce that our latest event will explore the Future of Recreation, and will be held in London on the 8th May and Manchester on the 15th May 2014.

This seminar will provide rich insight into the hobbies, relaxation and leisure pursuits that will be engaging consumers in 2015 and beyond. Understanding the relationship between work, rest and play is the focus for this event, which uncovers the key trends set to influence consumer attitudes and behaviours around how we spend our free time.

Architects, hotel groups, health & fitness companies, food & beverage, travel and garden & outdoor brands and cultural institutions will find this event central to their decision making process, underpinning strategic development and marketing messages for the year ahead.

FOR_4Find out how householders will be using their homes and gardens for leisure time, how technology is helping and hindering our wellbeing, the future role of relaxation and emerging trends for holidays and experiences at this unique event.

Trend Bible Founder and Creative Director Joanna Feeley will share insights, research findings, future predictions and industry opinion in this lively, engaging seminar.

“The way we use our houses; the way we choose to interact with each other and carve out space to spend time alone, is pivotal to design and decoration trends at home. Some of the visual cues come from other social environments like hotels and restaurants,” explains Joanna. “We will also be looking at the notion of recreation in terms of how people will spend their relaxation and leisure time, the role of health and wellbeing within this, and detail the most important activities and pursuits for 2015.”

Spaces are limited and are sold on a first-come-first-served basis so please do book early.

This event is for industry professionals only.

Nature Prescription

Trend Bible Nature Prescription SS14_1

As we revolve our lives more around the city and remove ourselves from nature, this trend is about creating a place for healing, and repairing, allowing us to pursue peace and silence and glean energy from the natural environment. The home becomes a reflection of our desire to be closer to nature, so natural materials are introduced in their raw state, often encased, protected and suspended in glass or acrylic, so that we can appreciate its beauty whilst the object maintains maximum usability and functionality.

This trend is the antidote to quick-fix culture, it replenishes and embraces the slow burn, mindfulness and honesty of bare, raw materials. The weathering process is cherished. Texture replaces print where quality of life, replenishment, and space for thought and contemplation balance out a digital existence. Continue reading
