Trend Report: Radical Colors Take the Stage

We are introducing a new design resource to inspire commercial interior designers to experiment and think about ways to take risks in their designs for commercial interior settings.

“Radically Modern Color” dives into the unimaginable ways colors are being combined and applied to create everything from apparel to home decor. You can download the trend report here. Best yet, it’s free!

The new decade has already seen its fair share of disruption. In the past 18 months we’ve experienced major wildfires, political protests, and a global pandemic. 

We’ve also seen a shift in the way color is being used. The color trends and themes in “Radically Modern Color” highlight the pairing of colors that reflects the disruption we’re seeing in broader society. Color and color applications are being used in imaginative ways, and these brighter hues and combinations are reminiscent of the 60s and the last time we were in the midst of such a revolutionary era.

“Radically Modern Color” focuses on four trends discussing what they are, where they are being used and how they are changing design. The trends highlighted are:

  • The Psychedelic Comeback  – The 60s are back and so are the bright colors and sinuous shapes so prominent during that time.

  • Building Blocks – Color blocking is going to the extreme by pairing colors next to each other on the color wheel for a bold effect.

  • Blurring The Lines – Gradients are all the rage and so is the Gaussian blur.

  • Clash Of The Colors – Pairing sunny yellow, gold and mustard may have clashed in the past, but not so in this new decade.

We’re hoping these trends will inspire creativity in the coming year and allow you to be more radical with your use of color, especially with carpet. For even more inspiration, check out our Design Inspiration Page, where you can view our color collections and envision how you can create a colorful commercial carpet for your next project. You can also download the full Zeftron Color Pallette, consisting of 120-plus colors, or request to have a Zeftron pom box mailed to you.

We look forward to hearing what you think about these trends and how they might influence your design choices in the coming year. Leave us a comment and tell us what radical combination you’re thinking of designing with in 2022.
