In early 2012, The Trend Curve forecasted that an updated Asian point of view would drive a leading trend for 2014. We even created a trend called Making Asia Major in The Trend Curve Colors™ 2014, which was released in the late summer of 2012.
At the December Showtime textiles market, fabric designs with an Asian influence were coming on strong for future upholstery and cushion collections—just in time for 2014 selling. From surface designs with fire-breathing dragons and Geishas to fretwork and fish scales, this trend has just taken a giant step forward. Below are some the best printed, woven and leather Asian looks from Showtime.
By the way, this is just one more example of the accuracy with which The Trend Curve predicts future trends. If you would like get a jump on trends for 2015, take a look at our nine predictions (and 36 forecast colors) in The Trend Curve Colors™ 2015.
