John Chester of Wild Apple mentions an interesting article and research about buying trends for home decor (including art).
The report says botanical themes are #1 across the country. A quick run through the “Pier 1-like section” of Target yesterday proved this. Most of the art reproductions were flowers and plants.
Read the report for yourself: “Styles & Trends: Survey of Home Decor.”
Lest you think otherwise, let me make it clear that I’m not encouraging you to make art based on market trends. But those of you who are interested in the wholesale market should be aware of how things work.
