Blue trend: a focus on all the shades of the ocean
"Water creates an exciting interplay of blue, green and grey shades. Mixed tones of blue give a special character to the surface of the design object – for example, by creating depth and a sense of balanced well-being."
That's what Insa Doan, trend researcher from Rosenthal, says on Ambiente Blog. As we dive into the search for the Living Coral, another trend emerges in contrast: the trend of blue.
In recent years there has been a strong awakening of awareness to the theme of sustainability and protection of the oceans, therefore colors such as blue, light blue and herbal tea are very popular and wanted.
The impact of this marine trend has influenced decorations, interiors, design and catwalks. The most popular shades range from fresh water tones ranging from blue-grey to turquoise.
Cookware Colour Trends: Difference Between Local Markets
Consumer tastes definitely vary depending by location. In Northern countries both in America and Europe, customers are drawn to more classic colors such as black, red and grey. These choices offer a high-quality look and feel giving the sensation of a durable and serious product.
Differently, consumers in Southern Europe, Middle and Far East countries are more often drawn toward more colorful solutions for cookware which can also be very bright and such as light blue, pink and green.
Glossy finishes are also quite popular there.
Independently from their location, Millennials, no matter where they live, are much more innovative in their cookware choices. They are more likely to buy complete sets of colored accessories, which then make up a dominant element of their kitchen and table furnishings.
A new and very inspiring trend coming from the US, that we want to point out, is the behave for some families to invest in a set of cookware in different colors for a family member with food allergies.
This is a smart solution that can keep food that will trigger a reaction away from the person with sensitivities.
