Vendors are predicting a shift in key color palettes for next year. Metallics were named as the top color scheme for 2015 by 67% of vendors responding to Gifts and Decorative Accessories’ Exclusive 2015 Trends and Forecasts Survey.
The shiny color palette replaces the brights color group for the top spot of vendors reporting as important or very important. This year 60 percent of vendors named brights as important.
That’s an 11 percentage point slip from the year prior, when seven out of 10 manufacturers named brights as important or very important.
