Sharing design trends is fun on both the “giving” end and the “receiving” end. Who doesn’t want to know what’s up ahead and get ideas on ways to use those insights?

Also sharing insights and trends at Dwell on Design is Sarah Reep, Director of Designer Relations and Education for Masco Corporation. Sarah’s session -

You’ll be able to see how larger trends are shaping customers needs and expectations. With consumers being more aware and empowered, there cannot be one size fits all. Learning what is new, what is now and what is next will empower you to drive the right decisions and applications during this great time of change and recovery.

And if it’s immediate satisfaction that you’re looking for, check out this quick video we shot that shares three of the top trends that relate closely to the closet and cabinetry niches.
