Predicting Plants In Home Decor
Adding a living plant or fresh cut floral arrangement has always been a good idea in a room. Most Home Decor Retail planning will include some inventory that helps people make that addition because most people like the idea. Dümmen Orange, a global provider of floricultural supplies, has recently introduced a twice-yearly report that provides trend forecasting for the industry and this report includes insights for retailers. Since retailers need to predict trends, adding more data always helps plans become profitable.
Here are their predictions regarding point-of-purchase material and complement retail sets for the next few seasons:
- Autumn 2017 will be earthy, grounded, and rustic. The predicted trend is modern saturated earth tones with subdued brights. Point-of-purchase materials should highlight natural materials and cozy textures. Complement retail sets utilize accessories of leather, canvas, steel, and wood.
- Winter 2017-2018 will be tactile, neutral, and weighted. The predicted trend is neutral, monochromatic palettes with soft hits of color and gold. Point-of-purchase materials should include small-scale textures like snakeskin and subtle touches of gold. Complement retail sets will have statement accessories featuring marbling, asymmetry, matte or metallic finishes, and large-scale knits.
- Spring 2018 will be simple, clean, and contemporary. The predicted trend centers on tonal pinks that balance soft shades with deep, saturated tones and a secondary layer of coral will add interest. Point-of-purchase materials should focus on simple, understated selections in neutral tones and a combination of matte & glossy finishes. Complement retail sets will have tonal stripes, color blocking, and simple accessories with clean lines in white and graded shades of pink.
- Summer 2018 will be bright, contrasting, and energetic. The predicted trend features intensely saturated red and blue alongside bright, light neutrals with fresh green, blue, and apricot touches. Point-of-purchase materials should combine extremes: matte with glossy, natural with synthetic, and organic with geometric. Complement retail sets will include sparkling glass, matte plastics, organic forms, and exaggerated textures.
