High Point Market had its fall trade show on October 19-23, and it gave a lot of insight into the interior trends you can expect to see a lot of during the winter months. If you’re not familiar with it, High Point Market is the largest furnishings trade show in the world, drawing 75,000 retail home buyers, interior designers, architects, and other industry professionals to High Point, North Carolina, for the show that takes place every six months.
The market features over 12 million(!) square feet of show space and more than 2,000 exhibitors representing 100+ countries around the world. Part of the reason that the show’s so popular, other than the boundless new products it showcases, is that it’s a great way to glean the trends that are on the cusp of taking over our homes. And the latest show definitely doesn’t disappoint.
If you’re looking to give your home a fresh update, check out some of the trends from the market (and the products that inspired them) that are about to be everywhere in the coming months.
All Green Everything
Green, in all of its forms, is definitely about to take over. Everything from emerald to apple to sage made an appearance at the market, gracing chairs, artwork, and consoles with its verdant hues. We particularly love the dimensional, geometric design of this stunning Chase Chair by Chaddock.
Inlays and Overlays
Given the enduring popularity of mid-century design, it’s no surprise that the inlays and overlays found in many mid-century pieces were trending at the market. They were featured on all kinds of furnishings, including this contemporary take on a mid-century console from Global Views.
In addition to mid-century inspiration, the coming months are also likely to see an influx of postmodern-inspired furniture and decor as well. Think: ‘70s and ‘80s glam, with mixed metals and wood, plus the reimagining of simple geometric shapes, like this segmented John-Richard mirror.
We love how gold has the power to instantly glam up a design, and apparently we’re not alone. The market featured a ton of gilded accents in many different styles and finishes, like this insanely romantic and elegant Jasmine Flower Chandelier from Corbett.
Curvy furniture has been a trend for several seasons now, and it’s only picking up steam. Equal parts fluid, elegant, and retro, curvy accents, like this Gabby dresser, instantly add movement and inviting comfort to a look.
Drawing inspiration from the arts and crafts movement, manufacturers are increasingly enlisting craftspeople to elevate their pieces with thoughtful, one-of-a-kind details. A beautiful example is this John-Richard sideboard, which features hand-painted breakfronts.
Caning in Unexpected Ways
Caning in the form of rattan chairs is a longstanding staple, but this season’s market saw the practice used in new and unexpected ways. Caning graced all sorts of furniture and decor in a variety of shapes and hues, like this baby blue dresser and matching daybed from Wildwood.
