At the beginning of every new year, a growing business will tend to do two things: 1. Look Back – at what has been accomplished, how we have grown, where we succeeded and where we stumbled. 2. Look Forward – what are our goals this year, what can we do better, how will this company leave it’s mark on the design world this year.
2013 is going to be a very exciting year for oomph! We are anticipating a new website with easier shopping, launching daring and confident new designs, and continuing to bring a little (or a lot) of oomph to everyone! Every day, we welcome new visitors to the newly renovated oomph showroom at the corner of Main Street and Elm Street in New Canaan, Connecticut. If you are ever in the area, please come by and let us know what you would like to see from oomph this year!! What are your design goals for 2013?
We were especially pleased to read designers’ forecast of 2013 design trends!
First up – CURBED! On December 27, Curbed polled industry insiders on their design predictions for 2013. Common predictions included: lacquer, brass details and Inlay, x-benches, and aggressive uses of color. Below are a few pieces from our new collection – The Chelsea Desk with brass inlays and X-Bench! And of course, oomph, color, and lacquer are synonymous!
The second article that caught our attention was this past weekend’s OFF DUTY section of the Wall Street Journal.
Again, several top designers were asked what they were looking forward to in 2013. Nick Olson “resolved to use more purple and yellow.” Below are two of our new colors 2013 — concord grape and gambol gold!
Needless to say, we are very excited to introduce the complete new collection to you very soon! At oomph, we work very closely with designers and clients in developing new products, so we were not entirely surprised by their predictions. What you can look forward to are five new colors, new designs in every category, and a lot of big news from oomph this year! So stay tuned, sign up for emails, share with your friends and join the party!
