Five Key design trends inspire Couristan’s annual trend report - Colorado Style

FORT LEE, N.J. -- Marking 95-years in business, Couristan is once again launching its annual Trend Report video and for 2021 the identified trends are all about the company getting “Back to Basics,” a nod toward breaking free while allowing nature to cleanse the end-users' souls as we all rediscover wellness.

The company invites viewers to take a journey with them to Colorado, "where evergreens resiliently hold their color in winter’s cold grasp, and where each new snow fall generates a fresh beginning. This is where nature meets home."

The identified five key trends have inspired a full range of  recent introductions, award-winning and innovative products, from the textured appearances within the company’s new Brocatelle and Couture collections, to new designs offered in its  renowned Old World Classics Collection, and the versatility offered within Courstan's “original” outdoor collection, Recife.
