We attended the big show at the Mart last week called Neo-Con - it is a multi-floor extravaganza of furnishings and finishes aimed at the contract market. We always attend to get an eyeful of what is being shown and how it is presented - it's always fun to see the trends on the rise and those on their way out. This year we noticed quite a few op art inspired patterns being used, from upholstery to floor coverings....

Just a few examples (shown above, left to right):
