Cottage Couture Cabin life conveys a toned-down opulence while emphasizing nature Implications - As cities increase more and more in population, the ability to get away from it all truly becomes a luxury. Once considered a vacation for those who couldn’t afford a trip overseas, cottages now serve as the ultimate nirvana. With the end of the recession, consumers make an attempt at being credit-savvy by showing off their money in a toned-down, eco-friendly manner.

Next Besting (UPDATE) Consumers bypass traditional brands for the next best alternative Implications - In our current period of economic uncertainty, consumers are still buying things, but they are becoming more conscious of what they actually need and why. In all categories, they are in pursuit of the 'next best thing'. We coined this term 'Next Besting' in 2008, but we continue to see it play out in all categories, including fashion and technology where budget-friendly alternative products are breaking new ground.

Minimal Impulse Tendency towards bare simplicity in home design and furniture Implications - Minimalism is becoming the base for home decor and furniture design, which caters to today's busier consumer. Whereas complexity in design may induce psychological clutter in an already hectic lifestyle, raw functionality and clean visual aesthetic help to reinstate some aspect of calmness and order.

Urbane Naturalism Wooden decor & furnishings let city-dwellers bring the outdoors, indoors Implications - With nature-focused concepts becoming increasingly prevalent within today’s society, companies are providing a more practical approach for consumers to incorporate nature into their own lives. Giving customers the option of furniture pieces and home decor with an all-wooden touch, businesses are attending to a market who wants to enjoy the outdoors even when they’re in the city.

Pretty Pixelation Pixels are no longer exclusively a photography faux-pas Implications - Once considered exclusively a photography faux-pas, pixelation has now lent itself to the art and design world. Innovators are drawing inspiration from computerized images in order to create imperfect-looking products in the realm of furniture, films, eye wear, gadgets and more. Collage-esque pixelated styles coincide with a consumer desire for imperfection and a DIY ethos.

Optical Illusionism Trompe l'oeils offer an intelligent escape from reality Implications - Consumers are no longer attracted to purely "pretty" items. The incorporation of optical illusions into products coincides with the desire for items that make people think, use their imagination, while at the same time escaping from the banality of everyday life. From home design to fashion prints, things are not always what they seem.
