Top Drawer Predict the Latest Autumn 2016 Trends

Top Drawer organisers have recently unveiled their prediction for Autumn 2016 trends. Always keen to explore new and exciting ideas in the world of design, the Autumn 2016 trends are a great way to view cutting edge developments in the industry.

For this Autumn’s trend pick Top Drawer has teamed up with Stylus, the go-to-people for global trend analysis. Stylus’ influential insights reveal how shifting consumer mind-sets and behaviours create worldwide lifestyle trends – and most importantly – how they impact Product Design. As such, Stylus has identified six key aesthetic trends across Home, Gift, Fashion and Craft.

Visitors will be able to see each of these Autumn 2016 trends expertly curated through a variety of products at the show.

So without further ado let’s take a closer look at the trends that will be showcased at this year’s Top Drawer Autumn.


Autumn 2016 Trends at Top Drawer



Organic influences bring a calming sensuality to pure design details that characterise a whole range of products across all lifestyle sectors. The aesthetic is fluid; the palette is soft, warm and natural.

Canvas Home – Stand I13


Lonetree Cards – Stand ZB34



Clean Primary

Stripped back to its bare essentials, the minimalist outlook here is lean, clean and agile. Colour is seen in flat and often matt applications, with colour-blocking referencing the Bauhaus movement used to differentiate product components.

Stone Marketing Ltd – Stand Y17


Yod and Co – Stand H-C23


Urban Nomads

Architecture largely informs this ultra-functional direction, which celebrates simplicity and practicality. Look out for bold graphic styling and patterns with this pared-back, modern trend.


Loft 18 – Stand W38


Moxon – Stand G23


Crafted Neutrals

Tranquil and comforting, this Autumn trend sees materials with subtle tactility, exposed textural details and refined finishes given to humble resources such as cork and bare wood. The colours imbue a sense of stillness.

Mor Boutique – Stand Stand R14


Sue Pryke – Stand C11


Modern Metallics

Looking to a luxury era of high performance materials, this trend shines with luminous colour and clean metallics, while opaque materials like glass lend ambient and ethereal qualities to a whole range of lifestyle products across the show.

Portico Designs _ Stand G47


Coulson Macleod – Stand J32


Earth Patterns

Inspired by our worldly wonder, this direction sees pattern, texture and colour take their cue from the endless variations found on Earth. Natural colours, as well as organic contours, tonal washes and mottled effects, all calmly evoke the natural world.

Nkuku – Stand D15


Reflect and Repeat – Stand I10C
