The three biggest retail design aesthetic trends for 2016

Our design team predicts these three design styles will dominate retail interiors in 2016:

  1. Black Metals

In 2016 we’ll see less copper and bronze metals and more black metals appearing in retail interiors. In this trend, black metals, in matt or gloss, can be incorporated together with raw wood, glass and other raw, natural materials or even used alone to create furniture and point of sale display pieces.

  1. Rounded Furniture and Lines

Round lines will be a dominant retail design detail in 2016

Gone are the days of the hard, angular shapes we saw dominate in 2015. This year, expect to see more radial and bullnose edges, lines and detailing soften hard materials, such as marble and solid wood in shop fittings and interiors.
