Inspired Elegance – 
Partially due to our need to create comfortable surroundings during a time of economic uncertainty- traditional design is classical and mixes well with furnishings from other eras. Rich finishes and textiles play a role in adding warmth, comfort and reassurance. Inspired Elegance involves a deeper story of moody colors, aged and layered finishes, textured fabrics, and stately patterns that convey a sense of elegance and comfort.

Cottage Industry – celebrates a fresh approach to traditional design with casually layered elements and relaxed styling. Retailers have capitalized on faded elegance, finishes with a sense of history and beauty with feminine direction. Polished sensibilities lean towards serene, subdued hues and restrained colors with tastefully rich accents. Light is important in this trend as well as soft colors such as muted shades of sea greens, pale coastal greens and cool softened grays. This trend will appeal to all generations but mainly to Gen Xers with traditional taste and a modern life.Cottage Industry trend celebrates a fresh approach to traditional design with casually layered elements and relaxed styling.

Versatile – A reflection of what is going on in our lives post ” The Great Recession” with significant shifts in how we live, what we value and how we spend. Less is more as consumers learn to live within their means. Luxury and trade-up redefines even for those who have not been as hurt—quality, longevity and durability take more importance over designer labels and logos.

Unearthed – offers a renewed appreciation for nature and its surprising colors and textures. A counterpoint to all the slick perfection and distraction of our computers and gadgets is that we respond to the “perfection of imperfection (wabi sabi)” found in the natural world.

Urban Craft – Modern Craftsman styling predominates new housing as we celebrate natural woods and materials as well as architectural detailing. Urban Craft brings modern design aesthetics such as a cleaner palette, mid-tone wood finishes and layered/complex metal finishes.

Vibrant Spirit – a vintage-inspired style that combines independent spirit with authentic inspiration. In culture, we see this trend in the growth of vintage and second-hand stores that provide consumers a way to mix the old with the new. It is a trend that reflects our global community, with design inspiration that can come from anywhere around the world.

Finally, Corona has been producing Ceramic Products for over 130 years. It is almost a $2 billion corporation that is still a privately owned and professionally managed company in Colombia.

Corona and D & B have been doing business together for over 35 years.
