Insights into consumer trends are a must for both retailers and designers. They are one of the key reasons why Decor + Design in Melbourne has forged its position as Australia’s No.1 Interiors Event.

Hosted by leading UK Trend Forecasters Scarlet Opus, the 2018 Trend Hub at this year’s Decor + Design will be an immersive, sensory experience which will showcase innovative new materials that Scarlet Opus are forecasting to be a major part of upcoming collections.

Sourced from designers and makers from around the world, Scarlet Opus have given us a sneak peek into some of the materials and confirmed that there will be a focus on recycled, bio-composite, sustainable and natural materials.  The overall theme is inspired by the many cultures along the Old Silk Road – a trading route from China through Persia, across to Europe. The Trend Hub will bring together a global mix of styles and the earthen luxury of nature.

Decor + Design visitors will be able to ‘post and like’ their favourite products at the show on the giant analogue Instagram page and collect free samples.  They will also discover the top colours for 2018, gather trend information and content for social media platforms, and explore the new material displays.

Join us at Decor + Design 2017 from 20 – 23 in Melbourne to be inspired. Entry to the Exhibition and the Trend Hub is free for Trade Visitors. Tickets for the Trend Tours by Scarlet Opus  as well as Head Forecaster Victoria Redshaw’s keynote presentation on Macro Trends for 2018 – will go on sale May 10.
