Color Block Chic

Contrasting hues offer fresh vibrancy while sticking to minimalistic aesthetic

Implications - Although consumers love the minimalistic aesthetic, sticking to black, white and other neutral shades can get boring. As such, color-blocking is becoming a major aspect of design as it offers a simple way to embolden a look while still keeping the entire aesthetic clean, minimal and polished. This direction continues to be well-received in the fashion world but it is also making its way to other areas of design, such as furniture.
