A Design Trend for Spring Summer 2018 communicating an ‘Easy Optimism’

The sun relentlessly beats down on me as I write this post, most of us (people) are enjoying the 3rd mini-heatwave of the year; it’s hard to keep in mind that it’s only Tuesday and a work-day.

This week the team have been in London for the Exclusively Housewares and Exclusively Electrical Show. This is a long-established, well-known and specialist show packed with over 120 housewares, electrical and tableware suppliers. We have been awarding our Scarlet Opus “on trend” badges to the products we feel are perfect for this season and near future seasons. Visitors can follow the trend trail to explore what we identified as key products to watch out for.

Our trend boards highlight some of the chosen products, these have been on display for everyone to photograph and reference. Our trend presentation by Phil and Victoria explained the background research to the trends including colour direction, material, textures and product development. IMG_4943

Metallic Mix Copper Collection and Orange Collection by Kalorik

Kalorik’s newest collection features a mix of warm and cold metallic coloured electricals; this fits in perfectly with this seasons Christmas Trend. They work to provide on-trend colour and pattern in kitchen electricals to brighten up the social hub of the home. We also love their intense coral orange collection, mixing and matching the block colour items  also creates a perfect combination for Spring Summer 2016.

Rivsalt Himalayan Rock Salt by Auteur

We love the Auteur salt grater, it explores new ways of adding salt to food. This natural Himalayan salt is paired with a Japanese stainless steel grater of highest quality. Not only does it add a crafted, tooled yet luxurious element it also creates a beautiful center piece when placed on the table. A perfect gift for this coming Christmas.
