We had the pleasure of visiting the World Market Center Las Vegas last week and attending the Ahead of the Curve panel featuring a trend discussion with innovative, influential designers - Vicente Wolf, Laura Kirar and Tim Corrigan - that was moderated by Today Show contributor, Susannah Salk. The topic?

Emerging trends. Each designer spent time walking through the market and picked 3 hot new trends that you will start seeing in shops and boutiques over the next few months and seasons. The panel was presented as both a live panel discussion and an interactive webcast for viewers to email in questions during the presentation.


  • Unconventional Concrete, concrete is taking new shapes and forms, like a console table or even a ping pong table.
  • Into the Woods, this trend is to take one of the world's most basic and natural elements and create something extraordinary that can be used in everyday life.
  • Sculptured Sheen, furniture and decor with a serious shine and glossy makeup, these pieces mix both straight and curved lines, like the legs of a table. Also seen as "traditional lines with a modern twist.

  • Unexpected Elements, decor interpreted in a new and interesting fashion, like the wooden chandelier pictured. The wood treatment is unexpected for this type of decor.
  • Trendy Turquoise, this pretty blue will be interpreted through furniture, decor and art and will be one of the most popular colors of the season.
  • New Energy. New Look., mirrors and screens expand a space, offer a new way to view your home and create new energy in your space.


  • The Natural World, back to basics showcasing items with an unfinished look and natural vibe.
  • Ethnic without Borders, bold and vibrant colors with a sense of hand made care.
  • Mixed Metals, golds, silvers, and more are mixed together to add dimension to decor and is described as a "bipolar" look.
