NCS Colour Trends 2024+

13 mars 2023

In recent years, we have embraced a more chromatic and a happier colour direction and much less the colours of nature, and this trend will continue to evolve. However, in 2024, we will also see a brutal parallel return to nature, a Biophilia 2.0, primarily due to the fact that climate change is moving faster than expected and will touch us directly. A new and critical awareness is emerging about our planet’s human footprint. We are about to be introduced to a brand-new era on earth called Anthropocene.

Learn more about our colour trends by viewing our Trend Talk 2024+ from Stockholm Furniture Fair earlier this year, launched on both Vimeo and Youtube.
