We report on design-forward products from around the world, but do you ever wonder about the origins of the artwork: patterns, motifs, graphics? This “trend tease” introduces you to some international design studios where you can learn about product application and trend directions for next year’s products. Studios from France, the Netherlands, and the UK, give us a peek of what’s to come in tabletop, wallpaper, bedding, window and floor treatments, and the entire gamut of home fashion. Watch this episode to discover more directions including the global looks of ikat and suzanis, Turkish and Uzbekistan influences, hand-painted creations, and bright saturated colorways.


SURTEX is a trade show selling and licensing original art and design for all product categories within the home and will be one of 100+ design events Trendease attends this year.  Subscribers to www.trendease.com stay tuned!
