Learn through 138 pages what 'Meaningful Design' is, and why it matters today more than ever.

Let's be honest.
Trends are on vogue. Everybody talks about trends.

How many trend reports have you read where 'trends' are reduced to colors, materials, and shapes only?

These are features.

It is easy to have access to future materials or color directions. But applying colors does not necessarily mean you work in the right context, understand the emotion they convey, and how we purchase consumer goods.

Do you know the no.1 reason why many individuals consider trends are immediately outdated?

When working with features only, you will scratch the surface of design opportunities, and risk to offer what anybody else already has in store.

You will lose the potential a trend report can offer you: understand your client, his needs, empathize, and provide solutions.

An in-depth study of a Micro Trend, however, gives you information about THE WHY of a trend, including shifts of values and needs of end consumers. Colors, materials, and shapes are a translation but not a trend in itself.


The reason why we have created this report is to underline how widespread the need for a more balanced life in today's society is.
We all (including our clients, friends, family members, and the Eclectic Trends team) have noted an increasing shift towards JOMO - the joy of missing out.
CEREMONY shares inspiring projects and data to reflect the need for meaningful design within the interior and design field. We take a closer look at concepts such as self-care interiors, holistic well-being, and mindful practices.

Furthermore, the report observes what Good Design means today, and how analog and digital care can live side by side.


The Trend Report addresses the moment we live with a need to counterbalance the chaos many individuals feel.

We all can somehow resonate with CEREMONY.
The overall well-being for humans becomes the center of attention where rituals are often a useful and essential tool helping one's body and soul to find peace of mind.
By focusing on personal growth, transformation, and healing, individuals want to generate a beneficial state of mind that can be shared and spread after to the world inside and outside our homes.
Our home and lifestyle will need to provide solutions to unwind, detox, and allow for inner reflection.

1. Would you like to become a partner with your end consumer and stop being considered as a brand which sells products and services only?

The definition of well-being expands, including an understanding of a more ’holistic health’; you will create a loyal relationship with your consumer base if you master that point.

2. Consumers are increasingly motivated to take charge of their 'holistic health'.

But what is 'holistic health', and what design and services are already on the market? How can I offer added value as a brand or designer?

3. 'Meaningful Design' is the new watch-word, and Good Design is redefined.

How can I contribute to creating a more 'meaningful Design,' and why does it matter?

4. We live in an ever-changing society. Do you feel it gets hard to keep up?

The forecast helps you

  • develop a confident speech
  • to defend arguments within your corporate structure or in the presence of your clients
  • find ideas for new product lines
  • hone your communication skills

CEREMONY is thought for everyone interested in knowing how our society reacts to shifts such as the pursuit

  • towards a more balanced life

  • spirituality today
  • the rise of self-caring interiors

Also, if you identify within a broad spectrum of designers, marketing experts, color specialists, material experts, purchase departments, bloggers, journalists, researchers, and teachers, then we consider this Trend Report is for you!


CEREMONY tackles issues of how to find balance showing inspiring projects and experiences. However, we do not aim to offer a self-help book:)



"I have been following Eclectic Trends for years now. And while they provide a tone of amazing free content, the trend reports take the applicability to a whole new level.

A trend study makes everything much more applicable, and the workbook helps you internalize the concepts. This tool, once completed, can be a creative direction to hand over to a designer or a starting point for your process.

I have also understood much better the social dynamics behind the trends and their importance in communication. It's not only about the color or shapes, but in a high degree about the shared values."
