"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."

- Valentina Albaek | Owner Fabgoose



"Eclectic Trends's latest trend report, CEREMONY, is brilliantly insightful!

As business owners of an interior design studio, my business partner and I have always been conscious of the meaning behind the service we provide. Long ago, we developed a phase to summarize our unique design sensibility, which was 'we create spaces with history and heart, with story and substance' - and it has remained true for us in our design business for nearly a decade. Only recently, however, we've evolved our business to launch two new components - a to-the-trade showroom and a retail shop.

We found ourselves needing to reach out to customers for these two new segments and thoughtfully market our business much more than we ever had in the past and we were feeling a bit unsure of the ideal way to do this in a manner than aligned with our core ethos and yet spoke to today's consumer in a way that was meaningful to them.

This is when we came upon Gudy's new trend report - CEREMONY - and couldn't wait to devour every page. Not only did the information resonate with us, personally, on a deep level but we found new ideas and thought-starters on how to position our showroom and shop to our ideal customers in a way that feels relevant, timely and aligned with who our brand already is.

CEREMONY is an in-depth resource that offers guidance and insight on a new and ever-evolving consumer mindset from relevant examples of what other brands are doing right, to color palettes that embrace this lifestyle, and so much more. We're grateful for the insight that CEREMONY has provided us with and now feel that we can confidently understand the needs of our future 'mindful design-oriented' consumers. Thank you, Gudy!"
