Looking through my pictures from High Point Market, in an effort to not post a hundred + pictures of things I loved, I want to focus on the trends, in my humble opinion. I have enjoyed seeing what others earmarked as highlights of their trips, dying that I couldn't see it all in four days!
One noticeable trend, that I have seen for the last two years, is nailheads. Nailheads in obvious and not so obvious places, like lamps, doors, dresser fronts, wallpaper - in all finishes, but the majority are antique bronze.
Gallery walls are still hugely popular as well as large scale art, but I saw alot of plexiglass frameless art treatments, no longer reserved for commercial applications.

Chairs with gorgeous sexy lines, beautiful leathers and woods, but many more swivel chairs than I ever imagined. Now I'm thinking every home needs swivel chairs!

Neutrals are king and in every shade: blush, peaches, aquas, taupe, gray, but HOT pops of color and bold color-filled rooms were abundant.

The lighting was over the top gorgeous, everywhere. Statement lighting is paramount! But huge table lamps are really making headlines lately! (think vintage 70's-80's also)

The Tomlinson showroom had an impressive display of oversized lighting, with the creator on site, a wonderful older gentleman who is truly passionate about creating unique lighting for Tomlinson.
These are just a few of the trends I noticed at market. I feel rugs are moving away from bold, graphic designs, back to classic orientals, turkish, vintage and timeless designs. Draperies are coming back in a big way, and of course the key points are
details and layers!!!
Hope you all have a great week! We are off to tape a radio show! We'll keep you posted.
