Springboard Futures, a new style and consumer trend services firm founded by industry veteran Tom Mirabile, said the company is making its inaugural style and trend report available to retailers and manufacturers at no cost.
The offering is in response to the challenges presented to the home and housewares industry by the ongoing Covid-19 (coronavirus) concerns. Springboard Futures and The 2020 Springboard Home Trend Compass Report were originally slated to launch at The Inspired Home Show, which was cancelled.
The Springboard Futures report will now be delivered digitally at no cost in three segments. The first segment is available for download now at www.springboardfutures.com.
Here, HOMEWORLD BUSINESS® presents an exclusive first look at some of the key styles and trends according to Springboard Futures:
Styles & Trends
“This industry is my second family; we’ve supported and celebrated one another for over 25 years and I know first-hand how crucial trade shows are for buyers and sellers and how important face-to-face interaction has become,” Mirabile said. “Events like The Inspired Home Show are essential for sparking inspiration and discovering the latest product and consumer trends.”
As the industry faces travel restrictions and limitations put on face-to-face activities, Springboard Futures will provide actionable insights in style and consumer trends to help retailers and suppliers continue assortment and development planning.
“In truth, I’m honored to provide market intelligence and trend research to help guide our industry through this challenging time,” Mirabile said. “This will be our launch, and I really can’t imagine a better beginning. After all, our tag line is ‘Future Focused’… I think this shows those aren’t just words for us.”
