Summer Market Trendspotting

Ok guys, it’s that time of year again. We are headed to Las Vegas for Summer Market, which means a few things. One, it will be only slightly cooler than the surface of the sun. Two, we will be shopping for our design studio as well as our home store Kate Lester HOME. Three, I will be trendspotting and taking over the Las Vegas Market Instagram on Thursday August 2nd. So make sure you follow them (and us) to see what is new, what is trending, and what we will be bringing back for clients and the store! In the meantime, here is a little taste what trends we hope to see, as well some new releases a few vendors have sent us ahead of market! That’s right, NEW INTROS, and you saw them here first!

You guys know that found objects and global-inspired textiles will NEVER be a “trend” in my world, but I think we will definitely be seeing a surge in this look at market. From tassels, to muted stripes, to hand-crafted wall hangings- the Wanderlust vibe is here to stay. Clockwise from top: Pillow- Kate Lester Home, Wall Art-Fourhands, Throw-Loloi, Wood Planter-Creative Coop, Kantha Lumbar Pillows-Creative Coop, Paint- Gentle Gray, Benjamin Moore, Wall Hanging-Selamat Designs.

Another trend on our radar is good ol’ black and white. I am seeing it in exterior concepts, and we are using this deeper, moody palette constantly in interior paint schemes. So this means that I am pretty sure we will be seeing a lot more of it when it comes to decor this market as well. Horray for black houses!  Clockwise from top: Paint- Cavernous, Dunn Edwards, Island-Fourhands, Chair Palacek, Steve McQueen-Fourhands, Lumbar Pillow-Loloi.

If you didn’t already know, brown is BACK. I am loving these saddle tones, especially with added texture in suedes and leathers. Bring on the neutrals and the burnt orange, because it is hip, warm, and looks amazing with steel and natural-tone wood finishes. Really hoping we will see more of this trend in Vegas!  Clockwise from top: Art-Selamat Designs, Leather Pendant-Bobo Intriguing Objects, Desert Haus Candle-Aesthetic Movement, Rocking Chair-Fourhands, Leather Tie Pillow-Creative Coop, Pillow-Bobo Intriguing Objects, Paint- Saddle Soap, Benjamin Moore.

If you have been living on a deserted island, you may not know that green is a THING. Forest green, army green, blue-green, um, yes. We’ve been embracing this look when it comes to textiles, paint colors, and millwork; but I think now we are going to see it translate more into art, lighting and furnishings as well. Super excited about this- give me all the shades of green! Clockwise from top: Pillow-Creative Coop, MoonlightArt- Fourhands, Sofa- Fourhands, Paint- Benjamin Moore, Paint-Chimichurri (left) & Cushing Green (right), Benjamin Moore, Lamp- Circa Lighting.
