Las Vegas Market has identified three trends for the First Look forecast at the Winter 2022 Las Vegas Market: “Forest, Preserve;” “Now Screening;” and “Together.” The trends will be featured before and during the market via programming, vignettes, a guidebook and more.
“The Winter 2022 First Look trends explore top-of-mind subjects — sustainability and the environment, the impact of technology and the importance of gathering again — and their influence on the products consumers will purchase for themselves, others and their homes,” said Dorothy Belshaw, president, gift at International Market Centers.
“Forest, Preserve” refers to renewal and growth while bringing attention to the planet’s ecosystems. The trend uses colors that represent the forest floor — nutty browns, flinty stone, vermillion reds, mushroom and bark colors — while finishes are bronze, brass and gold metal.
“Now Screening” brings on-screen hues to the physical world by blending physical and digital into a color story including neon brights and game hues from fantasy gameworlds and virtual adventuring.
“Together” focuses on dining spaces and festive gatherings for Winter 2022 with housewares, dining and storage furniture, tabletop, seasonal, handmade and furnishings designed to welcome one and all.
“The Winter 2022 edition of First Look is one of our most thought-provoking and future-focused presentations yet,” explained First Look curator and veteran magazine editor Julie Smith Vincenti of Nine Muses Media. “After finding the silver lining for almost two years, consumers are emerging with new awareness and sense of connectedness, as well as desires to spend and celebrate. The First Look themes provide a framework for these post-pandemic priorities, moods and mindsets, and showcases products across all categories at Las Vegas Market.”
