“Our trend lens focuses on color, pattern, materials, and styles that illustrate the wants and needs of future-focused consumers and homeowners,” FIRST LOOK curator and veteran magazine editor Julie Smith Vincenti of Nine Muses Media LLC explains. “Redefining family and work life, reprioritizing discretionary spending, and gift-giving and celebration without restrictions will be explored through two image-rich pre-market webinars and in four centrally-located, at-market vignettes."
