Color trends from the ICFF show floor.
This year at ICFF, colors continued to soften. Pieces once produced in rich, bold color are now being shown in subtle, nuanced hues.
At Kartel, classic designs became even more ethereal in new shades of translucent pastels. Metallic accents took on a brushed and muted appearance. Gold turned to bronze. Silver turned to pewter. Everything became a little more grounded and grey. Our impression? All together color evokes an urban skyline. Beautiful stone greys combined with light sunkissed pastels–a refreshing morning in the big city.
