Tucker’s Dog Story

1 tucker2 tucker3 tucker

Hi, I’m Tucker. Yes, this really is my home, and one of my favorite chairs.

Being a star isn’t easy. First this photo shoot… I was exhausted, but did get my share of biscuits! Now everyone wants my paw print.

Life is good, just hectic. We live on a Virginia farm with cats, horses, and of course, lots of dogs. I love the beautiful outdoors on a pretty day, but not as much as my warm bed at night.

Most of my brothers and sisters were rescued like me. I don’t know much about my early years, other than where I ended up.

When I was about 10 months old, my sister and I were dropped off at a county animal shelter. All I remember is being very afraid of people, and very lonely. I was rescued from the shelter just before my time was up. Whew!

My Mama says I’m a boxer/pitbull mix, and about 2 years old now.

Enough about me. I do have one favor I’d like to ask… the next time you see a dog or cat in need of a family, please help them out.

Over the past few years, there has been an enormous surge in the variety of homewares available in Australia. As consumers, we are now spoilt more than ever by a diverse and inspiring range of styles to choose from. Whether it be a specific pattern (chevron was everywhere in 2013!), a beloved texture or simply an eye-popping colour – we all want what is hot right now.

Interior, fashion and industrial designers are constantly on the lookout for the next up-and-coming trend. The gift and homewares industry is no exception. In February, the Home & Giving Fair will collect some of Australia’s best wholesalers under one roof to present Design Life Sydney. Design Life is an exclusive area of the Home & Giving Fair that delivers to retail buyers the very best in innovative and inspirational design.

Blossoming Botany

Pantone recently announced Radiant Orchid as 2014’s Colour of the Year. Leatrice Eiseman, executive director of the Pantone Colour Institute expressed that Radiant Orchid ‘encourages creativity, innovation and originality’. Charlie Alliot of 6ixty was mindful of Pantone’s trend forecast when deciding which products to showcase at the upcoming Design Life. Retail buyers can expect to see furniture from 6ixty in fresh, vibrant and colours juxtaposed with more traditional body shapes. A notable emphasis can also be seen on strong coloured furniture accents, including the now famous Radiant Orchid.

Majestic Minerals

Dulux’s popular Precious Elements theme will no doubt be featured alongside other central trends at the Home & Giving Fair this February. Buyers can expect to find modern pastels and stone greys matched back with rustic wood and tarnished copper highlights. Design Life exhibitor Maytime Marketing will be launching their new range at the Home & Giving Fair which distinctly focuses on metallic and mineral-themed home interior products including faceted vases, ribbed cushions, hammered furniture and quartz glass.

Digital Retrospective

Retro Visionaries is expected to be another highly popular trend showcasing at the Home & Giving Fair. This theme presents a bright mix of pattern and colour, heavily influenced by the birth of digital culture and inspired by block shapes, digital art and white spaces mottled with bursts of colour. Quirky, bright and energetic products are matched back with the more traditional Scandinavian birch wood.
