Abbyson to Host Colormix Trends Forecast at October Market

Upholstery and occasional furniture resource Abbyson is partnering with Sherwin-Williams to host the 2018 Colormix Trends Forecast on the opening day of next month’s High Point Market.

The event, which predicts colors that will drive future design innovation, begins with a complimentary lunch at 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 14 in the Abbyson showroom, space 1156 of the IHFC Commerce Wing.

Lunch will be followed by a 45-minute presentation by Shane Jones, a designer account executive with Sherwin Williams.

“As a fashion-minded home brand, our in-house product development and design team seeks out resources and themes every season to help us pinpoint future trends, style and color— and the Colormix forecast is no exception,” said Rodd Rafieha, senior vice president with Abbyson.  “Abbyson is proud to host this valuable program for interior designers, retailers and merchandisers who want to better understand how these trends unfold in the creation of new spaces and influence future innovation.”

From vivid blue and digital green, to high-def yellow and rusty auburn, the Sherwin-Williams 2018 Colormix Color Forecast exhibits three unique color palettes that draw from emerging global trends. The collection predicts the colors that will drive conversation and inspiration for the coming year, offering new perspectives on societal influences and their impact on color and design trends.

The Sherwin-Williams Color Forecast team, led by Sue Wadden, director of color marketing, identified 36 colors drawing from fashion, nature, pop culture and global design, to create the Colormix palettes Sincerity, Connectivity, and Unity.
