As we step into the new year, Ghent has carefully curated a palette of trends that aim to redefine your spaces. From color selections to material finishes, we're excited to unveil the top four trends for for 2024.

Color: Denim and Terra - A Harmonious Blend

Ghent proudly presents Denim and Terra as our Colors of the Year. Denim, a timeless and versatile shade or blue, brings a sense of calmness and sophistication to any environment. When paired with Terra, a warm, earthy brown tone, the combination creates a cooperative blend that resonates with nature and brings a touch of the outdoors indoors. Whether you're designing an office space or a classroom, these colors seamlessly integrate to evoke a sense of tranquility and modern elegance.

Wood Finish: Updated Finishes for a Biophilic Touch

In 2024, Ghent is taking a bold step by updating our Waddell finishes to align with the latest design trends. Our finishes now include Caramel, Modern Cherry, Driftwood, Natural, Urban Walnut, Cordovan, and Java Oak. By choosing these specific 7 finishes we hope to foster a stronger connection with nature. Wood finishes, inspired by the beauty of natural wood, add warmth and authenticity to your surroundings. The revamped Waddell finishes not only follow the current design trends but also contribute to a more sustainable and eco-friendlier environment, bringing the outdoors inside.

Practical Solutions: Whiteboard Size Variations for Cost Efficiency

In late 2023, the National Motor Freight Classifciation (NMFC) made sweeping changes to freight classes which dramatically affected whiteboards and bulletin boards over 96" in length. Recognizing the need for practical solutions, Ghent is introducing additional sizes of whiteboards to minimize shipping charges. By offering a range of sizes, that will reduce shipping costs and environmental impact. This not only caters to the growing demand for flexibility in design but also aligns with a sustainable approach to product delivery. 

Shapes: The Art of Spatial Dynamics

Ghent is putting a spotlight on the power of shapes in design. Our Geo Collection, featuring innovative geometric designs, provides a visually striking and modern aesthetic to your spaces. Each piece in the collection is a statement, offering a fresh perspective on spatial dynamics and pushing the boundaries of conventional design. Geo joins Coda Circle Glassboards and the hexagon-shaped Hex Collection of glass, powder coated steel, and tackable boards. These shapes aren't just about aesthetics; they are about creating environments that inspire creativity and engagement.
