Thursday’s What’s New What’s Next at 200 Lex did not fail to impress. With industry heavy hitters headlining design discussions and lots of new product on display, the all day New York Design Center event is always a must attend affair.

Some highlights:

Chartreuse is the New Black:

In the Grange showroom,  House Beautiful Editor in Chief

 Stephen Elrod, Benjamin Moore Creative Director
 Ellen O’Neill and House Beautiful Contributing Editor & The Accessorator Editor Judi Roaman spoke about what colors they are obsessed with. Chartreuse was one of the top 12 colors the group felt was influencing creative choices across the country.

Eminent Domaine:

In the Phillip’s Collection showroom, we found out what was “happening” in design during the This is Happening panel led by Mat Sanders, Editorial Director of Domaine. Based on Domaine’s trend reporting series, Sara Ruffin Costello, Nick Olsen, Heather Clawson, and Phillips Collection’s Mark Phillips all chimed in on the subject.
