Rainbow Bright Garden Furniture

Do you think there is yet another little trend afoot? A trend for furniture that has a rainbow of color and a sense of 70’s bohemia.

I am certainly seeing a trend towards bright colors in general being used for outdoor furniture, but I think the woven rainbow effect is a trend all its own.

The tropicalia  cocoon swing designed for moroso by Patricia Urquiola. Available from Unica Home.

Are you noticing it too?  I am always curious to understand the source of design trends.  Like if there is a rainbow trend, is it as a response to the dismal economy and a desire to be bright and cheery regardless?  Conversely, it makes me wonder what has driven past trends for severe, monochrome, hard, and austere pieces.  Is it economic prosperity?  Or is it that there is no relation at all?  What do you think?
