Design Trends for 2016

May 3, 2017

When you work with the best Wedding Industry people in Toronto, it often means we’re setting trends. 2016 is a wealth of possibility and excitement when it comes to designing beautiful events. Today, let’s talk about our top 3 trends for 2016 weddings and events in Toronto!

Trend #1: Texture
While crazy colour palettes may not suit every event, every event can be made spectacular using texture. Think grosgrain ribbons, satin linens, leather chair covers, and so much more. Even food gets in on the fun, as new flavours and gastronomy opens our eyes to unique textures.

Trend #2: Green is Glam, Black & White = Timeless
The hot colours for 2016 are all about classics. Green is glam again as events incorporate greenery into their designs in a very big way. Eco-chic is chic again. Likewise, for a bolder statement, black and white is classic and timeless. Pair these two colours in unexpected prints and patterns for a modern look sure to wow.

Trend #3: Mix n’ Match Seating
Forget just using a chiavari and opt to play with seating design by choosing benches, lounges, chiavaris and vogue chairs. Mix n’ match to suit your design. Rounds may get chiavari’s while rectangulars stand out in bistros, etc. Go ahead, have some fun with your design.

No matter if you’re trend setting or trend following – 2016 is the year of making a statement in understated yet elegant ways.
