Linear patterns, computer-generated curves, architectural forms, 3D-printed prototypes … TrendWatch’s Line & Structure presentation emphasizes precision, clean lines and future-focused design solutions shaped by technology. In a materials mix that includes wood, polished metal finishes, plastic, stone, and both natural and synthetic fibers, Line & Structure offers furniture, lighting, accessories and textiles that are high-performance, edgy and purposefully engineered to meet demand for modern-day style, comfort and convenience.


Riveting & Romantic

TrendWatch: Riveting & Romantic

From romantic ruffles, small-scale florals, day dresses and tailored suiting to riveter-ready casual wear and pin-up playfulness, fashion influences from the 1940s are having a moment now and for the foreseeable future — TrendWatch’s Riveting & Romantic theme for Fall 2018 builds on the momentum. What to look for: warm color palettes, especially pretty reds, fresh pinks and greens, and soft brown varieties; feminine flourishes such as loose ruffles and confident florals; casual textiles; suiting patterns; and enduring styling.


Plein Air
