Top 5 colour and trim trends by CnT Factory


Warm neutral tones are high in, greys are out. The CnT Factory top 5 colour and trim trends report is here

The CnTFactory team hunts for innovations and new materials in fields such as architecture, fashion, design and lifestyle, and identifies forthcoming trends for the automotive design community. CnTFactory is now bringing its expertise to Interior Motives: here are its top five colour and trim trends, plus highlights from the 2020 digital Geneva motor show.

Grey tones are giving way to warm neutrals. Terracotta, rust and saturated beiges are making their way back into the design world with their warm softness, subtle strength and a substantial reminiscence about our heritage. These colours carry an undertone of sustainability and appreciation of nature. New shades of warm neutrals radiate quality and longevity. The darker tones are not only associated with heavy, thick and solid materials such as leather, metal and canvas, but also with flowing elements.
