I’ve always been a book-lover, so I’m excited to share what just came out: Trends & Influences, vol.3, completed by the product experts at Ferguson Bath, Kitchen & Lighting Gallery.
And it’s one of my favorite kinds – a 25-page, full color inspirational look-book. This newest edition showcases product design trends for the kitchen, bath, laundry room and outdoor. New this year are four online-exclusive trends: Interactive Features, Stacked Design, Larger Fixtures and Modern Industrial.
Here’s a quick look at the trends illustrated in the guide:
Metallics – From soft rose gold to strong black stainless steel, products are now available across the entire metallic spectrum.
Form = Function– No longer competing for importance, form and function are united and stronger than ever.
Texture– Creative use of texture awakens the senses in products that feel as intriguing as they look.
Approachable Pro – Enjoy the benefits of commercial grade kitchen fixtures and appliances – without them having to look that way.
Striking Forms– Modern shapes and forms are daring, yet their clean, curved lines and soft edges make them easy to incorporate into any design style.
Mid-Century Modern Lighting – Mid-Century Modern re-emerges as a dominant lighting trend, incorporating updates for the 21st century.
Of the Earth – Celebrating nature with designs that showcase organic forms and materials, the Of The Earth trend is inspired by the great outdoors.
Tech Innovations – From digital readouts to wireless connectivity, today’s thoughtful tech innovations give you more “smart” choices than ever before.
Classic Black, Cool White – Stand out or blend in with classic black and cool white.
LED– Planes and plates of LED modules are showcased in varying widths and lengths, blending into the shape of sculptural fixtures to produce illuminated pieces of art.
Have you been seeing these trends too? We’d love to hear!
