Crossville releases annual Design Trends Look Book
Crossville, Tennessee—Domestic tile manufacturer Crossville has released its annual Design Trends Look Book. This digital publication shows four macro trends currently influencing interior design, including associated tile collections that respond to these trends in interior environments.
These macro trends are researched and curated by Lindsey Waldrep, Crossville vice president of marketing. In developing the list, Waldrep took a holistic perspective that took into account broad societal and fashion influences that guide current aesthetics for both commercial and residential design. She first presented her findings as part of a global trends presentation at the Coverings Expo in Orlando, Florida, on behalf of the Tile Council of North America.
Waldrep looked at ongoing events paired with modern fashion and identified four notable areas of focus present in contemporary design: 1970s-inspired Bright and Bold, 1970s-inspired Bohemian Spirit, Bio-Feel-‘Ya and Touch Points.
Global Tile Trends Focus Areas:
Bright and bold: Offers not only nostalgia and comfort, but also creativity and play with many shiny, bold and bright shades. Style goes prismatic – optimistic in color, eclectic in pattern, liberal in material mix.
Bohemian Spirit: The “other side” of the 70s style, more earth-inspired with natural elements. This style is fluid, unconventional and comfortable – an idyllic response to the sensibilities of working anywhere.
Bio-Feel-‘Ya: Much more than just bringing the outdoors indoors; truly embrace a love for all things natural. Based on natural elements, this style converges interiors with the outdoor environment, creating spaces that are sensory and genuine.
Touch points: All about texture and tactile experiences. Dimensional handicrafts and the character of touch are important components of experiential spaces.
Each of these trends is greatly expanded in Crossville’s Design Trends Look Book.
