Lifestyle home furnishings vendor Abbyson, in conjunction with The Sherwin-Williams Co., will kick off High Point Market by hosting the official 2018 Colormix Trends Forecast.

The annual colour trend report will be presented Saturday, Oct. 18, at Abbyson’s market showroom, IHFC C-1156. The event starts at 11:30 a.m. with a complimentary lunch for attendees, followed by a 45-minute presentation by Shane Jones, allied ASID and designer account executive with Sherwin-Williams.

The 2018 Colormix colour forecast predicts colours that will drive future design innovation and three distinct palettes representing a global collision of influences.

From vivid blue and digital green, to high-definition yellow and rusty auburn, the Sherwin-Williams 2018 Colormix Colour Forecast exhibits three unique color palettes that draw from emerging global trends. The collection predicts the colours that will drive conversation and inspiration for the coming year, offering new perspectives on societal influences and their impact on colour and design trends.

The Sherwin-Williams Colour Forecast team, led by Sue Wadden, director of color marketing, identified 36 colours drawing from fashion, nature, pop culture and global design, to create the Colormix palettes Sincerity, Connectivity, and Unity.

“As a fashion-minded home brand, our in-house product development and design team seeks out resources and themes every season to help us pinpoint future trends, style and colour, and the Colormix forecast is no exception,” said Abbyson Senior Vice President Rodd Rafieha. “Abbyson is proud to host this valuable program for interior designers, retailers and merchandisers who want to better understand how these trends unfold in the creation of new spaces and influence future innovation.”
