‘Togetherness’ trend at Exclusively

Three of the biggest trends to influence housewares over the next three to five years will be showcased and explained at the live Exclusively Show (August 24-25 at Islington’s Business Design Centre). The three themes are Reset, Neo Luxe and Togetherness: each will be highlighted, with products from the show with a series of seminars and trend tours by trend forecaster Scarlet Opus.

Phil Pond, director of Scarlet Opus explains that Togetherness is “an immensely upbeat trend” that “is all about positivity and collective wellbeing.” It will be significant from spring/summer 2022.

Togetherness reflects permanent changes in society and is about people putting other people first. Sharing and collaboration are key, with colours that are joyful and vintage, including peach, cardboard brown and bubblegum pink.

African and Caribbean cuisine will be on trend, and quirky cocktails will be in vogue. We will see a continuing rise in outdoor eating and cooking, with new products to reflect this. Portable products for picnics and alfresco dining will be hugely popular.
