As experts in forecasting trends for the home environment, part of our specialism lies in understanding changes in consumption behaviour across a broad range of industries, including food and dining.
Recently covered in our Home Insight 2016 report, there continues to be evidence of supermarkets celebrating ‘ugly’ fruit and vegetables in an effort to counteract unnecessary food waste. Influenced by increasing consumer awareness of organic farming processes and the ongoing warnings of food shortages, several initiatives have been set up to change the way we buy into food.
We recently revealed our forecast for Spring Summer 2015 trends in our latest Seasonal Preview. Since being published over two years ago in our Home & Interior Trend book, we can now evidence these trends as they unfold in store.

The UK’s biggest design graduate show, New Designers, opened its doors last month for Part 1; showcasing textile and surface design, applied art and jewellery from over 100 British art colleges and universities.
Trend Bible attends the trade show every year as it offers a unique insight into the ideas that are inspiring young graduates. It’s also a fantastic place to spot the stars of the future. This year we awarded “Trend Bible Selects” to the designers we think are doing something really special.
We share our top three graduates of Part 1:
Seen recently at The National Stationery Show New York, Emily McDowell enforces powerful messages within her stationery using typography as the design focal point, rather than a motif. Inspired by her own illness, Emily’s work evidences an emerging stationery trend that breaks the rules and places ‘Humanity at the Heart’.
As well as forecasting 2 years ahead, we believe it’s important to carefully track the trends that emerge in-store at key points throughout the year. Earlier this month, our researchers hit the UK and US high street to uncover the most popular homeware trends adopted by major retailers for Summer 2015.
The National Stationery Show is the most comprehensive marketplace for greeting cards, stationery and crafting products in the States. Our US Trend Editor, Estela Lugo visited the show along with 10,000 other attendees last month, to report back on key design trends within the world of stationery.
As part of our intelligence gathering process, our Senior Trend Analysts attend events and exhibitions throughout the year.
