After spending three days at the High Point Furniture Market, I discovered several wonderful new vendors that we plan to start using for upcoming projects. It’s always a thrill to be at market and see all of the new introductions.
What’s hot right now?
We love our hair-on-hide. It used to be that you’d drape a Mongolian hide over a chair to transform it – now the chair is being made of it. I saw more outrageous versions of hides, hair and faux hair this market. Used sparingly, it can add some texture and warmth to a room. It speaks of luxury, or a good sense of humor.
Floral fabrics, painted flowers and even over-sized floral wallpaper. If any of you ladies have a home office, this is a great place to try this out. I could imagine some floral used sparingly in a hallway or sun room.
Mid-Century Modern Reincarnated
Some of these showrooms were beyond being influenced by mid-century design, they were like stepping back in time! Who needs 1st Dibs when you can get the new and improved version? A few great options here, and some stinkers too.
I’m seeing many of these trends showing up in the fashion magazines as well. I’d love to hear what trends you’re favoring this year. Please comment below!
