At the Tendence trade fair in Frankfurt I saw some really terrific outdoor furniture forms. A few days later at the Maison & Objet fair in Paris I was totally blown away by the all the innovative products for outdoor living shown in Building 7’s Outdoor_Indoor exhibition.
Even after we released our CD-ROM about Maison & Objet, I couldn’t stop thinking about everything I had seen for outdoor living. There were so many fabulous materials that I had not seen in outside use in the past. And there were both colors and patterns not previously associated with this category that pushed onto the scene. Even form seemed to be undergoing a metamorphosis. I felt certain that The Trend Curve’s subscriber family would want to know about all of it.
The result was What’s In Outdoors™, which we released a couple of weeks ago. Like all of our CD-based trend reports, What’s In Outdoors includes bullet-point details plus lots of images to show you the trends in materials, forms, colors, themes and more for Europe’s more interesting and innovative outdoor products. The response to What’s In Outdoors has been good and we are optimistic that this report could turn into an annual project.
