Sample Dinner Table Pro Trends

Each Dinner Table PRO Trend is on its own slide with implications, a quantified score, and examples linked to online dinner table articles, videos and images. Examples:

Battle Play Combat-inspired toys cater to youthful males looking to exert aggression Implications - With boys often engaging in acts of aggression with others at school or at home, what initially starts out as innocent can easily turn into something unfavorable. As a method to keep potentially hostile tendencies under control, parents are turning to battle-inspired toys like swords and lasers to give boys a more secure way to exert their naturally antagonistic ways. Toys that encourage battling with others reflects a move toward more regulated sources of contentious behavior.

Prioritizing Presentation Relying less on skill, consumers update food to be visually appealing Implications - With the explosion of foodie culture and an increasingly frugal population that prefer entertaining from home, the focus on home cooking for guests is placing increased pressure on consumers to create culinary works of art. Aiding the novice chef, accessories that shape, display or help augment food to be more aesthetically appealing place higher currency on display rather than taste. This shift from taste to presentation speaks to the culture surrounding cooking shows and celebrity chefs that consumers learn to imitate visually, but never taste-wise.

Campaigning for Curvy An increasing emphasis is being placed on plus-sized models and fashions Implications - The last couple of years has seen an uprising in the fashion community for fuller-figured models and more high-fashion designs created for plus-sized consumers. Some designers made waves in the fashion community by introducing curvier models onto their runways, and today, the curvy crusade continues more persistently than ever, with an increasing number of designers and publications jumping on board to assure its customers that they value all women, regardless of size. For many, it's no so much a social issue as it is a branding one.

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.
