Top Trends At Top Drawer

Four top trends for 2022 – Tobacco Brown, Monochrome Magic, Lavender and Modern Folk – were unveiled at Top Drawer this week, featuring exhibitors’ products that ranged from home fragrancing, bath and body, jewellery, interiors and ceramics to fashion accessories, glassware, greeting cards and giftwrap.

Created by REVEAL, in partnership with Press Loft, Tobacco Brown – seen on the catwalks – is being viewed as a calming, all year round statement colour for the home, with the natural essence of the colour creating a dark Scandi vibe during the summer, while bringing the outdoors in over the winter months.

Monochrome Magic, featuring a combination of black and white, or black and gold, is predicted to make an appearance this Christmas, reflecting a modern take on the festive period.

Top Drawer took place from September 14-16 at London’s Olympia, with exhibitors reporting a good show. “We saw people we hadn’t seen for a couple of years, and it felt really nice to be back in the game,” David Heffernan, co-founded of Aery told GiftsandHome.net. At Caroline Gardner, head of sales Carolyn Verderame, added: “We took lots of orders, with the average spend up hugely.” On the fashion front, Maelisa Brennan, digital commerce co-ordinator for Jayley, commented: “We were crazily busyand loving it. We had record sales!”
