THE TREND WALL

At Surface Design Show 2014, Global Color Research™ the colour consultancy company behind Mix Magazine and Mix Trends colour forecast book presented The Mix Trend Wall of unique colour and material trends for 2015.
The Mix Trend Wall is a wall of inspiration where real samples of materials, colour palettes and inspirational images give insight into future trend concepts.

Aura

Aura
AURA’s spiritual neutrals progress from last season sitting urban greys next to barely-there hues, lending a sense of optimism to the story.  For materials, structure is of most importance aided by lightweight substrates that imbue airy aesthetics into industrial shapes.

Benefit Statement

Belong

Belong
BELONG references the everyday and ordinary, using comforting shades and natural textures to bring reassurance and stability, as we cope with times of change by relying on the familiar. Well-known materials such as traditional metals and iconic aesthetics are renewed in this trend.

Merge

Merge
MERGE challenges our visions of the natural world with bold colours harmonising in unexpected combinations. Hard materials are taken to a whole new level of adornment by Merge; sparkling finishes and decorative aesthetics are used to maximise tactility.

Glade

Glade
GLADE is a story inspired by the beginning of spring and new growth; with glimpses of last autumn remaining, here we see a more sultry take on this lasting theme. Dry surfaces contrast with lush vegetation and wet gloss finishes.
