Trend Report / Fall 2015

Graphics & Great

Not everything is neutral and metallic these days … color abounds, you just have to know where to find it, not to mention how to present it! These most enticing designs are inspired by everything from age-old Ikat and Otami patterns to Mid-Century Modern design. Geometrics abound, but then, so do more figural illustrations. What they all share is a lighthearted quality, and, of course, an irresistible color palette that nods to our past yet feels completely of the moment. Mix and match these selections for an eclectic but always engaging display. —Sarah Schwartz, Trends Editor
