High Point Market is often referred to as the fashion week of the interior design world and is a must-attend event for design professionals and enthusiasts. Held twice a year in April and October in the charming town of High Point, North Carolina, this market is the epicenter of innovation and inspiration in the world of interior design. With thousands of exhibitors showcasing the latest trends in furniture, lighting, home decor, and accessories, it is a great way for designers to stay ahead of the curve and find inspiration for design projects. So, what did I see trending at this Fall’s Market? Continue reading to find out.
Earth tones and natural wood hues reminiscent of the 1970’s dominated the scene. As a child of 1970’s, I felt right at home in the warm and inviting vignettes inspired by this decade. The above photo was taken at the ‘M’ Showroom. M is Hooker Furniture’s modern lifestyle brand and includes upholstered items, as well as case goods, accent chairs, and beds. This heirloom inspired line exudes both comfort and refined elegance.
In keeping with the trending earthy tones and textures, rattan was a prominent material in everything from furnishings to lighting. Shown above are Universal Furniture’s Chatham Poster Bed and Hudson Valley Lighting’s gorgeous Reina Pendant.
Terracotta pinks and dusty greens were the dominant colors at this Fall’s market. Think Sherwin William’s 2023 Color of the Year, Redend Point, a luscious, earthy mauve that I just can’t get enough of! The photo above was taken at the Norwalk showroom. This vignette is full of warm, rich hues and textures and is reminiscent of the light and airy fashions of the 1920’s.
On the lighting scene, I saw a lot of geometric lines reminiscent of the Art Deco era, as well as organic and asymmetrical designs. Seen above are Visual Comfort’s Palati chandeliers in their Hand-Rubbed Antique Brass and Bronze finishes, as well as their Avant Large Curved Sconce.
In conclusion, design trends today are taking us back to nature with earthy tones and textures. Organic shapes and curves will be around for a while and warm colors will continue to abound as we happily toss out the gray and welcome in the warmth!
