True Colors: The Impact of Fabric Color + Texture


  • Wisconsin

Henricksen hosts André Lafleur, Sales Training Instructor of National Office Furniture's East Region, for a CEU session on human responses to textile colors and textures. 

Topic
Just as no two snowflakes match, there are many variations between fabrics—and those differences are important. The fabrics around us, those that we’re seeing and feeling against our skin, influence our thoughts and behaviors. This course will include the scientific research linking particular elements of fabrics to certain responses in humans. We’ll cover the psychological effects of seeing particular colors and patterns as well as feeling textures against our skin. We’ll also talk about how fabrics can help achieve desired outcomes in a variety of different spaces.
