On the Horizon: 2014 Product Trends
2014 looks set to be a year full of warmth, opulence and tactility in interiors. Moving past last year’s blue and green color schemes, experts have predicted that 2014 palettes will be dominated by purple hues with darker colors and textures replacing pristine white in the kitchen and bathroom. Iridescent accents will provide subtle shimmer on accessories and furniture while lighting designs are tipped to be more adventurous than ever before in 2014, as LED technology opens up new possibilities in terms of shape and material. Also look out for the influence of technology on print and pattern as designers create digitally distorted imagery using traditional craft techniques.
