Trends from America

Mark Woodman

“As our first name suggests, Global Color Research truly does embrace design and colour from around the world; reporting on what we observe, discerning important new directions for our publications and providing services to make sure that our clients receive the best colour and design directions. As curators and producers of trend areas at international exhibitions we are able to interpret the trends for particular markets, allowing for a more literal or esoteric result, depending on the audience. More often than not, it is a blending of the two.


As the North American voice of Global Color Research on the Heimtex Trend Table, I was asked to produce the Trend Forum area for Home Textile Sourcing Expo in New York. The overall theme, Being, and the four stories of the Historian, Eccentric, Geologist and Inventor came to life in room settings for each theme. Colours, patterns and textures mixed with accessories to help emphasise the stories. From violet tinted peacock feathers to blue precious stones to toys that spark creativity, attendees could immerse themselves in the vignettes that we created. Deeper understanding of the stories allows us to breathe life into them. We don’t just talk trends; we make them real, give them reason and, in some instances, make them fun. Be on the lookout for Global Color Research at shows around the world.”
