Hello! Hello! Now’s the perfect time to start thinking ahead to the NewYear and all of those home improvements you’ve been putting off. I’m here with a recap from the Fall High Point Market.
In case you’re wondering, “High Point Market is the largest furnishings industry trade show in the world, bringing more than 75,000 people to High Point every six months. Serious retail home furnishings buyers (including designers) can be found in High Point twice a year because if you can’t find it in High Point…it probably doesn’t exist.”
High Point Market is THE place for designer trends, resources and inspiration. There’s always so much to see and do. It’s actually pretty exhausting but so much fun. I did manage to snap a few photos while I was there and I thought I’d share some of the trends that resonated with my design sensibilities.
First up, GOLD (and brass)!
From the looks of it, it’s definitely here to stay. Gold finishes were pretty prevalent and I was happy to see them back this market. Warm gold tones add a bit of richness that I’m completely drawn to and from hardware, painted pieces and lighting, gold was everywhere!
I’m always on the hunt for upholstery inspiration. I’m obsessed with the skirted sofa, especially with the addition of a pretty trim. I’ve also always loved contrast piping, but many showrooms had pieces that had taken the concept to new heights. I loved the idea of this print piping and nail head trim combined.
Color was also in abundance this season but I couldn’t help but notice the various shades and tints of purple and yellow.
In addition to purples and yellows, this color lover was also overjoyed to see so many playful patterns in play in vibrant colors.
For as many colors as there were on display there were just as many neutrals.
I spent three days and two nights in what I refer to as Designer Disneyland and soaked up tons of design inspiration. Yet another awesome High Point Market.
