ATLANTA — Next year will be a time of monumental shifts impacting design, retail and industry practices.

Seven digital influencers will create vignettes inspired by WGSN’s autumn and winter 2017/18 trend report using AmericasMart products. The trends—Design Matters, Earthed, Nocturne and Infusion—are showcased by featured designers:

Kristin Alber of REstyleSOURCE will create vignettes for the Floor 1 lobbies of AmericasMart Buildings 1 and 2, and dress the set for the AmericasMart Live main stage and interview studio corresponding to the trends. In addition, celebrated interior designer Stan Topol will create a vignette in his signature style for the Building 1 lobby.
“The focus of the AmericasMart Vignette Exhibition is showcasing our buyers what’s new and next in décor and lifestyle product,” said David Savula, AmericasMart executive vice president of leasing. “Through these influencers, we are showcasing not only the evolution of trends but the evolution of how they are disseminated. This gallery is a manifestation of AmericasMart embracing and recognizing the future of the industry, its products and how its news is shared.” WGSN’s Elle Lasher outlines the key trends in a presentation on the AmericasMart Live main stage on Friday, July 14 at 10 a.m.
The signature white party takes place Friday, July 14 at 7 p.m. in the vignette gallery. All market attendees are invited to join for food and festivities as the market’s most popular event returns to celebrate The Great Reset Vignette Exhibition.
