Last month, our owner and interior design team went to High Point Furniture Market
! This annual event showcases room after room of new products, designs, fabrics, and more. Our team got to see new releases from current distributors and got to meet fun, new ones. We shared a ton of behind-the-scenes photos and videos from our trip on our Instagram stories
and Facebook page
, but we wanted to share even more insight! Here’s more about five trends we want to highlight from the trip:
We loved the range of new fabric designs - from fun patterns and colors to beautiful, muted neutrals. Textured fabrics continue to be popular and the velvet trend is very much still around. Sofas and chairs, like our Grandview Chair
or Ellison Sofa
, look stunning in these materials.
Brass continues to be present and we’re loving how it contrasts with darker woods. We noticed it best showcased on buffets and coffee tables, along with some dining accent pieces.
PILLOWS + RUGS
Texture. Texture. Texture. We’re seeing a further expansion into global and bohemian looks, with lots of texture. We love this trend because of how amazing it pairs with our coastal and urban designs!
Across the Market, we were really impressed with the new finishes. They're experimenting with new materials - versions of materials that already exist but are now improved! We liked this concrete laminate - on dining tables, buffets, accent tables, and kitchen islands! The finish, applied as a laminate or fused onto glass, looked beautiful both in style and texture and of course durability. Another we saw was Porcelain on Glass -- a version of faux stone or porcelain over glass that prevents scratches, is easy to clean and was quite beautiful.
CONVERSATION ON A SWIVEL
We saw multiple conversation areas made using a round coffee table and four chairs, mostly swivel. When styling a room, we typically see customers add a coffee table with a sofa and maybe one or two chairs. With multiple chairs surrounding the table, we saw how easy it was to have a comfortable conversation and the freedom of your own space.
