ATLANTA -- 2018 will be a year of monumental shifts impacting design, retail and industry practices, and in the July market presentation of its Vignette Exhibition, AmericasMart Atlanta explores the changing retail and design landscape in four distinct trends.
These trends, as defined by international trend authority WGSN in "The Great Reset: Redefining How We Live, Design and Do Business", premiere at The Atlanta International Gift and Home Furnishings Market, July 11-18, 2017.
At AmericasMart Atlanta, seven digital influencers will create vignettes inspired by WGSN's Autumn & Winter 2017/2018 trend report using AmericasMart products. The trends - Design Matters, Earthed, Nocturne and Infusion - are showcased by featured designers: Victoria de la Cámara, Rue; Vicki Gladle Bolick, The Ace of Space; Brittany Hayes, Addison's Wonderland; Kristin Jackson, Hunted Interior; Mandy Kellogg Rye, Waiting on Martha; Steve McKenzie, Steve McKenzie's; and Gen Sohr, Pencil & Paper Co.
Kristin Alber of RestyleSource will create vignettes for the Floor 1 lobbies of AmericasMart Buildings 1 and 2, and dress the set for the AmericasMart LIVE Main Stage and Interview Studio corresponding to the trends. In addition, celebrated interior designer Stan Topol will create a vignette in his signature style for the Building 1 lobby.
The exhibition is presented by AmericasMart, Rue and RestyleSource and sponsored by showroom partners, Castelle and Jaipur Living.
"The focus of the AmericasMart Vignette Exhibition is showcasing to our buyers what's new and next in décor and lifestyle product," says David Savula, AmericasMart executive vice president of Leasing. "Through these influencers, we are showcasing not only the evolution of trends but the evolution of how they are disseminated. This gallery is a manifestation of AmericasMart embracing and recognizing the future of the industry, its products and how its news is shared."
WGSN's Elle Lasher outlines the key trends in a presentation on the AmericasMart Live Main Stage on Friday, July 14 at 10 a.m.
