Last week, members of EON’s furniture and design team attended the annual NeoCon conference in Chicago. NeoCon is the commercial interiors industry’s biggest event, featuring the best products and most innovative ideas from all over the world. It was an amazing experience, as always – and here are some trends our team thought were most noteworthy from NeoCon15.
Height-adjustable bases and tables were everywhere at this year’s NeoCon. Anything that could possibly include adjusting height was on full display. Desks, l-shaped tables, u-shaped tables, and conference tables all showed what they were capable of with impressive height adjustments. One of the favorites shown below was the RISE Electric Height Adjustment Table, which features 3-, 4- and 5-leg tables and an adjustable-width frame.
Lounge seating was another main point of emphasis this year. Overall, the lounge seating highlighted was very comfortable, full of soft fabrics and very welcoming and inviting. The swivel lounge chairs featured were very large, as were the private sitting areas on display. One of the most impressive lounge chairs was the KI Sway model, which is an incredibly comfortable workplace seating solution.
A big color trend at NeoCon was lots of white with pops of accent colors like purple, orange, green and grey. Some showrooms created a very mid-century modern feel by using wood tones, and used the same pops of accent colors but were more muted overall. The overall color schemes felt very elegant and welcoming. One notable experience was the Jasper Group’s modern showroom, which featured multiple collaborative areas.
What were your favorite moments from NeoCon15? We would love to hear about them!
