Sample Chair Pro Trends - Each Chair PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online chair articles, videos and images. Examples:

Ornate Adolescence A desire for stimulation prompts more flamboyantly hued infant accessories Implications - As youths become more disinterested in home as the allure of social interaction becomes more prominent, parents are turning to more flamboyant decor ideas to make youthful living more visually stimulating. Moving away from contemporary design aesthetics, parents are opting for bold and eccentrically colored child furnishings to add visual excitement to youthful routine. Ornate infant accessories utilize stark visual aesthetics to connect with children in an approachable, yet exhilarating manner.

Modernized Infancy A need to maintain overall aesthetics prompts more minimalist infant decor Implications - With newborns requiring an overwhelming amount of preparation and at-home adjustments, personal tastes are often sacrificed to accommodate the chaos. Looking to provide children with practical accessories without having to forfeit overall aesthetics, parents are turning to minimalist baby decor to add contemporary appeal to traditional infant upbringing. The move toward more simplistic and refined child furnishings reflects a growing need to maintain individuality, even during substantial life changes.

Unfinished Decor Furniture is left intentionally raw for rebellious eco aficionados Implications - Unsatisfied with the heavily manufactured designs that dominate the market, bold consumers are turning to décor choices that are crafted from reclaimed materials to be in-line with their rebellious nature. The unfinished aesthetic carries notions of eco consciousness, but extends beyond to a desire for counter culture acceptance.

Modernized Sway The peaceful tradition of rockers and rocking chairs is updated Implications - Rocking chairs and rockers are a global symbol for childhood and innocence; however recently, this symbol (and what it means to be a child) has changed in a drastic way. The rise of social media has created a boost in personal branding, placing individualism at the forefront of most consumers' character. This value is embedded at an early age, beginning with the personally-packed updates made to traditional playthings.

Pet Replacement Infant rocking chairs get an animalistic overhaul to enhance visual stimulation Implications - As a means to shy away from the more frugal option of a living pet, parents are turning to whimsically enhanced children's toys to provide an engaging way to elevate infant imagination without added finance or responsibility. The transition of traditional rocker toys to more exotic and diverse animalistic designs reflects a shift toward independent sources of play that seek to mentally stimulate children on a more approachable level.

Sustainable Display A growing acceptance for eco living is reflected in blatant sustainable decor Implications - With a shift towards more accepting views of sustainability, consumers are becoming more expressive of their eco-friendly tendencies as a means to adhere to a new-found respect for environmental awareness. Moving away from the more subtle approaches to eco living, individuals are turning to audacious designs to boldly showcase one’s commitment to an eco lifestyle. Blatant sustainable decor combines eco-friendly references with the consumer need to feel intrinsically involved in cultural movements.
