Do you perform a Google search to find out what’s trendy and hot in color for home décor, paint, textiles and more? Poke around Pinterest, or follow tweets? Look to apparel for what they are doing and hope it will translate to your needs?
Or do you find a trusted source with nearly 30 years of experience with color forecasting and a track-record of achievement due to accuracy?
When you create your assortments—whether you are a manufacturer, importer or buyer—it is imperative that the color input you rely on is not only trend-right and accurate, but that it also reflects the future, not the past. You need to be certain, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that the insights you choose (and the forecasters who create them) have been correct year-after-year.
Remember, you are betting your business on their forecast!
