New Trends in the choice of Color schemes
The new trends in Furniture design has brought a concept of new choice of color schemes depending on the type of ambiance to be created. Along with maintaining the aesthetic aspect, new materials and new lighting techniques have also come up.
Two trend streams emerge; one following the ‘international’ look of pale sophistication, with beiges, creams and white, offset by stark black. A parallel stream throws into focus the bright new color palette with the nouveau chic fuschia, lime green, aubergine and aqua.
The trade and architect community notice a bifurcation in usage with designers selecting the former for more elegant, more ‘serious’ spaces such as offices, or for general use spaces such as lounge areas in hotels, while residential spaces, use color to project the personality of the owners. The bright colours give a happy office look. Finance and Insurance offices are serious and very professional offices can have lighter colors that add richness to the space whereas other offices could use shades of yellow and light brown.
Import Material market in India
Imports are far more widespread both in their existence and in their provenance. While the Indian imports account was opened with Chinese imports that were at a low price quality point, imports now stem from all across Far East. This includes Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, China, Indonesia and Hong Kong for the office furniture and for the lower end of residential and contract furniture.. A very significant proportion of furniture, lighting and bath products and accessories is sourced from European countries such as Italy, Germany and Spain, at higher price and value propositions.
The influence of the Italian Lifestyle product manufacturers has been a key influencer in the move away from low value propositions to higher value products. Today’s furniture designs are most dependent in Italian furniture design as it has loads of demand in the market.
The design industry in India is competing in the international design market. Even the Indian interiors are competing at international standards as there is much more variety of material of international quality to work with the locally available.
Despite the great demand for the imported stuff in the Indian markets, the markets are still largely dominated by India-made products at all price value configurations.
Architects and Designers are suggesting their clients to select traditional materials that are available locally so that it will require lesser capital and the look and elegance and style will be extraordinary and amazing!
