The ideas and insights in Trends Forecast 2020 – Beneath the Surface will be brought to life in a series of events co-hosted by Laminex, Dulux and Warwick Fabrics, that will tour the country in October and November.

The Forecast marks a powerful collaboration between these three iconic Australian design brands because, while external factors such as culture, technology, the environment and politics have a strong influence over movements in interior design, there’s also a constant interplay between adjacent design industries, including surfaces, paint and textiles. As a result, Laminex, Dulux and Warwick Fabrics each brings an overlapping but unique perspective on interior design. Together, their insights will provide comprehensive and up-to-the-minute overview into emerging trends in colour and texture, and invaluable ideas for how your design projects can take shape in 2020.

This collaboration also builds on our partnership with Dulux to produce paired colourways from the Laminex and Dulux product ranges, enabling architects and designers to create seamless and complementary colour palettes across walls, benchtops and cabinetry.

Introducing the speakers

The event will be hosted by The Design Files’ Lucy Feagins, featuring a panel discussion with

  • Catherine Valente, Laminex Design Consultant

  • Andrea Lucena-Orr, Colour and Communications Manager at Dulux Group

  • Luciana Wallis, Design Manager at Warwick Fabrics

The panel will distil their latest insights, as they survey global and local interior design trends to deliver the products Australian architects and designers need, now and into the future.
