Housewares TrendHive is an exclusive video series created for HomePage News by Tom Mirabile, founder of Springboard Futures and consumer trend forecaster for the International Housewares Association and HomePage News.
This installment of Housewares TrendHive spotlights Neo-Primitive Nexus, showing how trends converge to bring more texture and dimensions to contemporary interiors while maintaining a minimalist ethos. Expanding across home categories, its forms lend historic relevance to tableware and housewares.
Evolutionary patterns inform furnishings, accent and wall décor and floor coverings. Global culture and craft are core influences. Design inspirations draw from diverse creative origins including Africa, South and East Asia and South America. While origin drives material and form, both are refined and refinished for a modern aesthetic. Compound influences of pattern and texture are unified by a minimalist palette of tonal blacks, warmed whites and browns.
