We scanned the New York International Gift Fair held last week at the Javits Center and found three emerging trends to keep in mind the next time you want to spruce up your place.
Seletti rubber-coated garbage can, $225, www.selettinorthamerica.com
Royal weddings, diamond jubilees and the hit television series “Downton Abbey” are all influencing this one. Touches of curvy details and formal Victorian accents add a bit of class to home goods.
Sagaform Happy Days serving bowls, $50, www.burkedecor.com
From mixing strong color combinations (think orange and pink or blue and green) to colorful surprise details, pops of bright color showed up everywhere, including trims on neutral pillows or tabletop items.
Sugarboo Designs When In Doubt Pillow, $120, www.gatheringgrace.com
Letters on artwork, linens and dishes have been a big trend, but now designers are taking it one step further by encouraging quotes on our favorite accessories.
