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:

Eco Gardening Consumers seek out eco-friendly gardening tools Implications - Gardening is an eco practice in and of itself, but consumers who want to take it one step further are opting for environmentally friendly tools and practices, such as solar-powered appliances or sustainable packaging. This shift reveals that it's not enough for consumers to partake in eco-related activities; it's also important that the process itself is, from start to finish, environmentally conscious as well.

Holistic Introvert Isolation becomes a lifestyle with solo aids Implications - In today's globally connected digital society, it's becoming harder and harder to get some private time, creating a demand for accessories and gadgets that take privacy to an extreme level. From architecture to travel, the thirst for alone time is becoming more drastic, signifying true dedication on part of consumers to the cause of self-preservation.

Adventure Accessibility Wheelchair innovation expands boundaries for the differently abled Implications - A new sense of independence is being gained by the differently abled as innovations that allow for adventurous excursions rise.

Blatant Faux Fake fur provides mental and physical comfort in more than just clothing Implications - Though physical comfort is still important to consumers, the desire for a clear conscience has consumers seeking alternatives to luxurious, but often cruel fur. This ushers in a wave of faux fur that is so pervasive it is penetrating industries beyond fashion. Consumers are wearing their faux fur badge with pride, un-intuitively going against the glamorization of "authenticity" in favor of passive activism.

Niche Fandom Celeb merchandise takes an eclectic turn as consumers crave customization Implications - Moving beyond typical collectibles, merchandise, particularly for celebrities, are taking a more abstract turn to create consumer intrigue. Branding things like lingerie or household decor with logos or images, retailers are re-branding typically lackluster products with elements of pop culture, allowing consumers to showcase their appreciation through familiar yet creatively customized retail goods.

Athletic Aids Maintaining active lifestyles, boomers turn to sports aids that reduce strain Implications - Maintaining the physicality of your youth can often be a challenge, prompting aging consumers to turn to products that make physical activities like sports more adaptable. Using aids like trollies and seat attachments to make sports like golf and paddleboarding less physically demanding, these products speak to a desire to maintain a sense of athletic involvement, even in old age.
