We provide seasonal color + trend reports, as a powerpoint presentation, targeted specifically at the Home Decor, Personal Accessories and Gifs markets. These are available two times per year, Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter. They are focused on four categories; Individual Color, Color Palettes, Print/Pattern/Surface Design, and Materials. This service is provided on a flash drive that comes with a write up. I am also available to do webinars seasonally where I can take you through the presentation or come and speak to your organization in a live presentation.
The second portion of our reports is targeted at specific trade shows internationally. They vary by year, but usually include the NY NOW Gift Show and Maison et Objet in Paris, ICFF and Architectural Digest, both here in NY. Each year, depending on our travel schedule, may also include other international shows. Each of these is a report of the show with the same focus on Home Decor, Personal Accessories and Gifts. Each report is divided into the same four categories of Color, Color Palettes, Print/Pattern/Surface Design and Materials.
We also provide specialized reports for many of our clients and those can range from a focus on fragrance to occasional furniture and decorative accessories to bedding and bath as you advise. We even work with Pet Smart.
Lastly we are available to work on Product Design and Development, Brand Strategy, and Market Research.
We work with clients that range from retailers that include Macy’s, Crate & Barrel, Neiman’s and ABC Carpet and Home to Designers and Product Designers that include Donna Karan, Cliff Young and Ralph Lauren. Additionally, we work with Interior Designers and Trade organizations that include the International Furnishings and Design Association (IFDA), the Interior Design Society (IDS), Accessories Resource Team (ART) Printsource and Maison et Objet.
