“In the wake of the pandemic, consumers are seeking meaningful connections after a time of social isolation. In the home, householders create joyous spaces to welcome back family and friends. For Home & Interiors AW21/22 trends we see more informal, intimate gatherings that facilitate analogue activities like gaming and fine dining experiences that encourage deeper conversations. With TV budgets sky-rocketing due to the increased adoption of streaming rather than cinema, consumers are being greatly influenced by what they see on the small screen. Many recent TV series are deeply and purposefully rooted in a particular era (The Queens Gambit 60’s, It’s a Sin 80’s, Bridgerton 1800s). The decadence and glamour of these eras appeal and we see an authentic retro aesthetic emerge.” Clare Coulson, Visual Researcher, TrendBible
