Trend #1 Crystals / Crystalline Forms / Facetted things
Love this trend – in fact, it’s been a ‘trend’ for me for like, ever….. so when this started entering the zeitgeist in all the possible forms… from illustration to glass worked boxes, and ceramics to the use of naturally occurring crystals in jewelry… I was thrilled. What’s not to like about facets? They serve to reflect light in beautiful and random ways. Crystals are described by their natural molecular roadmaps…. ergo, their beauty is quite literally manifest from the inside out.
Etsy is still one of our favorite sources for current trends in the design world, despite the many negatives surrounding it’s cross-over into a corporate entity. They have several weekly eblasts that illuminate trends that the powers that be at Etsy Central have seen a lot of.
There are also many many other sources. A few of our favorite blogs and shops:Jonathan Adler, Houzz.com, NannyInez.com, Bezar.com, Takeheart.com
