Back in 1984, TRENDS was launched in New Zealand to fulfill the need gap for an authoritative source of reference on contemporary architecture and design. Since then, the brand has grown from strength to strength to become one of the most referred to magazines across 11 countries including Australia, USA, UAE, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Indonesia and Hong Kong.
In 2010, TRENDS was launched in India as Home TRENDS to showcase the best in international and Indian design trends and concepts pertaining to residential design. However, over the time the brand realised that it needs to widen its reach and target a wider audience.
Hence in 2013, Home TRENDS widened its scope and reach, and entered the exciting area of spatial design to become Home & Design TRENDS. The new title was introduced to address the dynamic flux that the architecture and the design communities were witnessing.
The new magazine explores exciting avenues ranging from latest global products, newsmakers and extraordinary design concepts to commercial projects that include hotels and restaurants, upcoming luxury residential properties, iconic architectural cities, etc.
Positioned to be the only magazine in India that brings the conversation about good design to the forefront, the content focuses on this mission in various ways. It could be in form of newsmakers and works of world famous architects, interior designers, street artists, or product designers and visual artists along with extraordinary works in public spaces and famous architectural cities.
