“Each year our product experts extensively work with our industry partners and trade professionals to identify consumer trends and the next wave of innovations for the home,” said Mary Hannah Fout, senior marketing manager for Ferguson. “We use Trends & Influences to provide consumers a comprehensive glimpse into what will be trending throughout the country. While a homeowner’s style may be Farmhouse Modern, we’ve curated a selection of products that blend with a wide variety of design styles. As we note in the book, our recommendations are just the starting point of possibilities.”
