Sherwin Wood rszOctober 20, 2021

The Industrial Wood Coatings division of Sherwin-Williams has released its annual Colormix trend forecast for 2022 entitled MODE. Highlighting 24 trending wood finishes, MODE is an acronym for the four collections within the forecast – Method, Opus, Dreamland and Ephemera.

The forecast presents wood finishes that promote growth and adaptability, guiding industry trends throughout the next three to seven years, the company says.

“More and more, we’re seeing consumers embrace individuality when it comes to the products they choose and the way they design their spaces,” says Lauren West, Global Color and Design Director, Sherwin-Williams Industrial Wood Coatings. “With a wide range of trending finishes in MODE, we aim to inspire manufacturers to develop wood products that align with these consumer preferences.”

The finishes in MODE are derived from the Sherwin-Williams architectural paint Colormix Forecast but are translated into wood finishes for use by wood product developers and manufacturers. Both forecasts are heavily influenced by nature, noting the ways organic elements can provide balance in interior and exterior design.

“The natural finishes in this forecast are a breath of fresh air,” says West. “The elegantly refined accents and soft, grounding bases found in MODE lend a combination of nature and nurture to wood product design that is extremely refreshing. As home and business owners refine their spaces, our team is excited to assist manufacturers of furniture, kitchen cabinets, flooring and building products in bringing these restorative palettes to life through beautiful wood stains.”

New Digital Solution Helps Customers Bring Colours to Life

AkzoNobel 3D colour visualization tool
AkzoNobel Powder Coatings has developed a new web application 3D colour visualization tool within its Interpon webshop to help customers better understand how a powder coating’s colour, texture and finish that look good in theory, will actually appear in reality. 

The tool provides instant access to thousands of colours in the Interpon range. Using a 360-degree dynamic camera and simulated lighting, the customer is given a true-to-life image of how the colour performs to a degree of accuracy and realism not possible before in a virtual environment.  

Rather than the image being ‘flat’, the customer can orientate the ‘virtual’ panel to see how the light reflects and the colour looks from different angles.
