Programs
Color & Emotion: Mining the Consumer Mindset
On Tuesday from 12 to 1 in room S100: Research reveals that there are specific themes for home furnishings that serve as a basis for the color palettes that are most meaningful to consumers. Each of these themes (also referred to as "moods") will appeal to a differing segment of the population and consumer mindsets, providing the emotional pull that can lead to the sale of home furnishings products. On Tuesday, Lee will identify these major moods that will help you to both understand and appeal to varying consumer needs and aspirations.
