Top Drawer, the UK’s leading design-led lifestyle and interiors event, to showcase the latest trends reflecting current global cultural shifts catalyzed by wellness and climate change. Event runs from this Sunday 8th to Tuesday 10th September.
Partnering with global insight agency, Flamingo, Top Drawer have identified four key trends ahead of its A/W19 edition, drawn from the agency’s ongoing analysis of the larger cultural shifts driving trends today.
These include Omniwellness, an expansion of wellness beyond physical fitness into a more holistic space; and Harmonious Systems, which sees people, in the face of imminent climate collapse, seeking products that bring innovation and nature together in harmony.
Buyers and retailers will be able to choose from a highly curated selection of design informed by the following trends:
Grounded Rituals: A natural autumnal, earthy, tactile vibe that is tied to nature and wellbeing.
Introspection: Soft winter pales and warm neutrals create meditative and conceptual clean palettes, grounded in natural materials.
Modern Vestige: Classic shapes are given contemporary looks through juxtapositions of emerging tech with heritage craft: from 3D printing to etched surfaces.
Soft Assembly: Imperfect shapes that are soft and rounded add an irreverence to a blue based autumnal palette.
Visitors will have have access to various interpretations of these trends, as leading retailers and lifestyle publications—Selfridges, Oliver Bonas, Heal’s and Sheerluxe—bring them to life at Top Drawer’s Trends Café; in addition to a unique edit of over 1,000 carefully curated brands.

Showcasing everything from cutting-edge to classic design and firm favourites to undiscovered names—creative retailers and interior professionals have access to the very best and newest design-led homeware and lifestyle products.
