itself. Rather than a wardrobe with two doors and one drawer, or a four drawer dresser, consumers will be demanding the ability to specify and orchestrate the format of their furniture based on their own personal needs for space, shape, storage and room size. It seems obvious and makes sense, a bit like built-in wardrobes, but this need has never crossed the threshold from paper into our new nurseries. The reason has been a combination of several factors. Firstly cost, since stock holding and management of such an offer is quite complex. Secondly it is hard to communicate and, thirdly, hard to deliver. But the rules are changing and between the creation of apps and the smart devices in our hands and pockets, the tools to provide consumers with confidence has shifted dramatically. The ability, and often the necessity, for factories to gear up and make to order in short timeframes has meant that costs have fallen, and the ability to deliver to

our door in timely fashion has become a mainstay of our retailing expectations. These three trends are all intrinsically different. One is about look & feel, one about the change in our cultural expectations of how and in turn what we buy, and the final one reflects the changing opportunity to offer tailored services to reflect individual consumers needs and buying requirements. Trends are no longer dictated by interiors, styles and finishes but trends are now shaped and filtered by how, where and what. So, after a period of one size fits all and a sense of less choice and ever more competitive pricing, the changes in our habits, reference points and demands will force the market to be less generalist, more varietal and reflective of our exposure to wider trends, our desire to shape the outcome or a specific needs catered for.

Trolls verses rainbows How do we work with online trolls? What’s the solution? Both are questions I often ask myself. n the whole, the internet is just one big toilet wall for humanity to write graffiti on. It has brought out the worst in the ccollective i.e. us. It has given a voice to m many that should have remained sshrouded in ignorant silence. It has become a cauldron of hate for some b aand a chalice of arrogance for many. It is the playground of the phishing and hacking criminal, the p b bully’s third fist, the coward’s heroic voice,

and the exponentially growing death knell of our high streets. That is sometimes how I feel. Usually after one of those days when every troll, gremlin and grumbling cyber-nob have all posted and tweeted about something that’s not quite right with things my clients have made or done. It’s often a Monday when this happens. The wheels aren’t round enough, the suspension

isn’t suspensioney enough, the handlebars don’t suit my 7’11” husband, my 48lb baby doesn’t fit in the carrycot and he’s only six weeks old… Yes, dear reader, I am writing this at the end of one of those Mondays. But if I push the little button behind my ear and reboot the brain, then I am reminded that the internet is also the great leveller for the modern brand and
