We work with over 6,000 trade buyers who use our site to gain access to more than 1,000 suppliers worldwide. As a result, we get a unique view of what’s going on in the world of interior design in regards to search data and buying trends – information we thought we’d share!
Working for the second time alongside WGSN, global leaders in trend foresight, we’ve analysed reports from all the major trade shows globally, and combined it with our search and buying data to offer key insights into the major trend stories of 2017/18.
We’re well aware that our community of buyers are more likely to set trends than follow them, so we’ve designed this report to focus more on giving some context as to why certain styles, materials and colours are popular.
You can download the full report here. But if you want a sneak peak of some of the key stories, read on!
