TRENDING: 2017

Happy New Year and welcome 2017!!! We are excited about the New Trends coming this year. Let's start with Pantone 'color of the year 2017' GREENERY! We are finally seeing a lot of COLOR! The Dreary Age is over.......In the past people have been scared out of their wits by color. Grays, browns and neutrals were the only shades people felt 'SAFE' to use. Now, modern doctors believe lively and upbeat colors have a strong affect on our mental happiness! 

Some of the other fun new trends that we are seeing are: 

3D Printed furniture!!! This is SO cool. We are seeing benches, consoles , and chairs developed in a 3D printer . Obviously they are mostly made out of a high tech plastic for now. No more long lead times! 

Chalk finishes are another trend. Everything from lighting fixtures to paints to appliances are just a few examples....

There are fabrics and wall-coverings filled with dots, splashes (as in paints) and free flowing colors. Checks and plaids are making a return in new ways. 

New again in floors are Cork and Terracotta ..Cork is also moving back into other areas such as wall-covering. Art inspired wall covering is also huge as in a full scale pattern taking up the whole pattern.. As in this example ...

Another Trend is Matte Black appliances and hardware. It is a modern twist to the traditional stainless steel, and adds a softer and warmer feel to the room. With the new palette of jeweled toned cabinetry, matte black blends better than stainless steel. We're moving on from the shinier metals, and keeping the look understated!

These are only a few of the new trends for 2017! We will report on more as the year progresses..
