New trends are always a great inspiration for upcoming product lines and to get an idea of which designs will become popular in the year to come. We chose our five favourite trends/trend combinations that we love for 2021 (and beyond!). So if you are still wondering in which direction to go for your next collection or product update, look no further …

Soft Eco Chic & Braveground

Lightwood, eco-friendly & organic shapes make the ultimate combination for this warm and homecoming trend. Mix this with Brave ground; the Dulux colour of the year and you have a blend that will surely become a classic.

Pantone colour-combo of the Year

Illuminating & Ultimate Gray

“The union of an enduring Utimate gray with the vibrant yellow illuminating expresse a message of positivity supported by fortitude. Practical and rock solid but at the same time warming and optimistic, this is a colour combination that gives us resilience and hope. We need to feel encouraged and uplifted, this is essential to the human spirit.” -Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute
