Neocon 2019 | Recap June 25 2019

NeoCon is renowned for showcasing the cream of the crop in commercial design, and the show’s 51st year was no different. Refreshed Mid-Century and booth offices are just the tip of the iceberg - check out Kush’s recap of NeoCon 2019!

COLOR BLOCKING

A vast range of colors made an appearance, but there’s a very clear trend in accent colors - royal blue and gold, emerald or teal, and the ubiquitous clay-coral.

BAUHAS OR MID-CENTURY MODERN? BOTH, PLEASE.

Mid-Century design is as prevalent as ever, but there is a newfound focus on the early 20th century design movement Bauhaus.

OPEN WORKSPACE? NO, THANKS.

With open-concept workspaces still going strong, the introverts among us need a place to go to get some work done in peace and style. Pod offices and privacy seating create the perfect spot to focus or have a quick chat, along with curtain partitions and sound absorbing panels.

EVERYONE GETS AN OTTOMAN!

Ottomans are big big big - in all shapes and sizes. Mostly on wheels, many with storage, mobile ottomans are a great way to provide versatile accent seating.

THE CONTINUED RISE OF "RESIMERCIA" DESIGN

Boucle, plaid, metallic, and fuzzy textiles were all over. Most vendors presented a strong resimercial vibe - a living room feel in the workplace - to mix it up and throw in some unusual texture.
