For those that don’t know, High Point Market is the place where interior designers, buyers the press, and everyone “in the biz” meets to purchase furniture, home accessories, and get the inside scoop on the newest trends before they hit the stores. Basically, it’s designer nirvana!
High Point Market is like a glimpse into the future, and for us designers and style spotters, it’s a great tool for helping clients stay with the times, and a fun opportunity for us to find our muse.
Here’s a sneak peek at trends to come…
Lucite was a big player at market. Mirrors, tables, chairs, and barstools were everywhere. Not only does Lucite add a touch of chic sophistication to a room, it’s also great for making a small space seem less crowded. The best part is, it’s a more functional than glass, and can be paired with practically anything!
Strategically using trim bands on upholstery or even on lamp shades offers a customized look to any simple piece. The styles above are clean with a twist!
There was an Agate explosion at market! The beautiful gemstone has found its way into almost every design aspect, from tables and counters to light fixtures and artwork. A naturally glamorous yet uniquely eclectic design element. Plus, check out those colors!
Colorful Case Goods
Speaking of colors, the use of colorful furnishings was a dominant element at market this year. These fresh hues will brighten up any room and add a touch of imagination and whimsy.
