Vitra store in the meatpacking district here in NY. The red accents are right on trend and are a lovely way to brighten up the home- and just look at the adorable plywood elephants from their children' line- they are reproductions of a Charles & Ray Eames design from 1945. The elephant theme seems to be everywhere (more on that later). Last week I visited Printsource, a surface and textile show here in New York, and during the trend forecasting seminar the presenter talked about scarlet red as a continuing theme in home decor, as well as red objects for the home in curvy shapes like these lovely chairs. The Panton chair was designed in the 60's by Danish designer Verner Panton and looks better than ever. Red a color that energizes and warms...the perfect pick-me-up on a cold drizzly day!
