|Worlds Away Werstler dresser|
Like your favorite nude patent leather heels, these shades are
"CREAMY AND DREAMY"
and they’re being translated in all varieties of organics like this
Kelly Werstler designed limed oak dresser.

A no-fail way to top the trends?
Take your cue from the architects in nature,
the honey bees.
We humans like familiarity and gravitate towards certain natural forms, like the honeycomb,
which makes us feel safe and comfortable.
It’s a classic that’s making the rounds again
in a fresh, modern way.
"I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF THIS ICONIC PATTERN!"
THE ORIGAMI EFFECT
|Leif Petersen Flux chair|
As if it’s been folded, bent and manipulated by human hands,
this trend speaks to our yearning for
cultural connections and their
unique brand of hand-made goods.
Nothing embodies these two ideas better than the
art of Origami, the traditional Japanese art of paper folding.
Taking form as a chair, the ORIGAMI EFFECT is evident in this
perfect fusion of far east and made-by-hand aesthetic!
"DEFINITELY A CUTTING-EDGE TREND
WITH SO MUCH POTENTIAL."
I’m excited to hunt down all of these trends once I get to Market,
and will be taking lots of pix, for sure.
But this is just the tip of the iceberg!
More trending coming your way before I leave
so keep checking back with me.
