Five Style Spotters shared what they thought were the biggest trends to hit High Point Market tomorrow – get ready to see lots of metallics and curvy embellishments!
Today, we are sharing four designers’ must have looks for fall, to get you caught up before you head out to the showrooms.
“Harpers Bazaar is calling this trend ‘maximum impact’ but I am seeing it translated in bold upholstery. I am seeing vendors going strong with their upholstery choices – bright colors, bold patterns and interesting detailing along the seams. This is the kind of bespoke customization that gets magazine editors, designers AND clients engaged and excited!”
– Courtney Lake, Monogram Decor
“I’m not really one to follow trends, as our clients are making significant investments that last many many years, but if there was one thing I’m happy about seeing it the global influence in many of the new intros. A traditional sofa upholstered in a Moroccan rug, a metal veneer on a wooden console, or a twisted leg on an end table. I love seeing these details that signify a deviation from the stark, sterile modernism that’s been the trend for so long now. It’s time to bring back the unique details that give pieces a special quality and feel.”
– Kati Curtis, Kati Curtis Design
THE NEW FEMININE
“My favorite trend at High Point Market is a theme I coined from last market, ‘The New Feminine.’ This trend is rooted in tradition but modern and relevant for today. This market I think we will see a stronger presence of ‘The New Feminine.’ I expect to see more gold and feminine embellishments with semi-precious stones, mirrors and crystals. I love this trend because it brings PRETTY back. The New Feminine gives a nod to the past while embracing the future.”
– Leslie Hendrix Wood,Hadley Court
“I’d love to see some of the current fashion trends – such as all types of faux fur, colorful plaid, exuberant details like car wash pleats, and even the Nouveau Victorian lace and ruffles – make their way into the furnishing industry. I expect richer colors, with navy, bold greens, and ruby reds prevalent. Of course, gold and brass will remain hot in lighting, hardware, and accents, with perhaps more rose gold this market?! All in all, I know it’s going to be an incredible market from the previews we’ve seen!”
– Michelle Wiebe, Studio M
“It’s fun to see that furniture designers are bringing a touch of playfulness and whimsy to some of their new product additions this year.”
