IHA Webinars To Explore 2021 Color Trends

A pair of webinars next week by Leatrice Eiseman, executive director, and Laurie Pressman, vice president, Pantone Color Institute, will present the Monday keynote Eiseman would have given at The Inspired Home Show 2020 in March and a companion program showing how the 2021 Pantone home interiors color palette is illustrated by new products that were to be part of the Pantone ColorWatch display at the show.

Eiseman’s educational session, “Innovation: The Key to Success Through Color + Trends,” will be presented Tuesday, May 5 at 2 p.m. CDT followed by a live Q&A session. Viewers will be able to submit questions during the webinar for Eiseman to answer afterward.

“Innovation is a big buzzword right now, not just in housewares but in many different industries,” Eiseman says. “It’s about answering a need for something edgier and, in some cases, irreverent. That’s not to discard the fact that some consumers have a certain comfort level with some colors. You have to honor that by combining those traditional color favorites with other unexpected colors or in unexpected ways.”

Registration for Eiseman’s session is available here.

In her program at 2 p.m. CDT, Thursday, May 7, Pressman will bring the PantoneView home and interiors 2021 color trends to life by digitally recreating the Pantone ColorWatch trend display attendees would have seen at the show. Featuring the trend panels created for the show, she will highlight product submissions from exhibitors to illustrate how Pantone’s 2021 color trends will be showing up across the housewares industry.
