V: an Analysis Report
In V, we’re taking a deep dive into the analysis step — but we’re not just analyzing future trends, we’re analyzing our past, present and future.
We’re putting our predictions under a spectrophotometer to understand what we got right, what influenced unforeseen shifts and what this means for the next eVolution of color. We’re looking back to look ahead: our most thorough analysis to date educates this year’s forecast for the next three to five years.
On behalf of the Sherwin-Williams DesignHouse team, we’re thrilled to introduce our latest trend forecast, FUSE, created to inspire and influence industrial, product and CMF designers. These collections of individual and complementary colors reflect future trends that will serve industrial markets over 3-5 years.View the FUSE Forecast
