Webinar: Tektura & Scarlet Opus

At last weeks’ webinar Angela Paterson, Marketing Director at Tektura, and Phil Pond, Director Consumer & Design Insights at Scarlet Opus, posed the questions; why do we need trend forecasts? How do they work? How can we look 1 or 2 years into the future and accurately predict the colours, designs and pattern we’ll be using?

Tektura is one of the UK’s leading suppliers of wallcoverings, and their products are used across all market sectors : hospitality, health care, education, commercial and high end residential interiors.

She works closely with Tektura’s own factory and design team, and also with Tektura’s manufacturing partners around the world. The collective pool of experience and knowledge is in her words”invaluable in bringing the best product to the table”. She’s also actively involved with the global forecasting team at Colour Hive, as well as being on the SBID panel for health care.
