All the Trends You Should Know About from High Point Market 2018
We’re back in the studios after a busy week sourcing new furnishings for our interior design clients at High Point Market. We came back with our hands full of new treasures and a list of favorites for clients to come. After six days scoping the depths of the showrooms and sitting in every piece of furniture we loved for clients, we formed our lists of the best new trends to hit market and the ones we’re seeing starting to stick around.
The Top Interior Design Trends
TIGHT BACK SOFAS: Everyone is loving tight back sofa, from furniture manufacturers themselves to our own design clients. We noticed tight back furniture is nearly every showroom we visited this market. CR Laine, Four Hands and Berhardt to name just a few!
BLACK FOREST MARBLE: Bernhardt debuted an exquisite new collection of furnishings with dramatic and bold Black Forest marble. We always love the luxe look of marble, but this takes it to a whole new level.
EQUESTRIAN VIBES: Horses were in as many places as furniture… seriously everywhere! Accessories, art, books, you name it — equestrian inspiration was plentiful. CR Laine and Bernhardt did this trend well!
BLUES + GREENS: Blush pink had it’s moment, but this is the year of blues and greens. We love a classic neutral, but have been loving seeing cool blues and greens used as the new neutral. We loved this artful wall at Trowbridge and were inspired again at Julian Chichester!
ANTIQUE MIRRORS: We were on the search all weekend for stylish antique mirrors for our Modern Mediterranean project and were excited to find so many of our favorite vendors, like these from Julian Chichester, had such well-done options!
DELICATE METAL ACCENTS: We love giving our clients pieces that have interesting details, whether statement or subtle, and noticed tons of furnishings featuring spherical based metal accents. Four Hands and Mr. Brown had a couple of our favorites!
ETHEREAL SCULPTURAL ELEMENTS: We found lighting, furniture, wall art and accessories drawing us all in from all angles with an artistic feel. We are all seeking comfort in uncertain times, and our interiors are trending this way with a higher focus on comfort and softer edges, shown by SkLo and Carvers Guild!
The Design Trends Still Happening
SCULPTURAL FORM: We hope this sticks around always and forever. Adventurous form and unique style is what we’re all about, so we love this trend, especially these lamps at Visual Comfort and sculptures from Noir.
VINTAGE INFLUENCE: We saw vintage vibes in some of our favorite lighting, art and vignettes from the weekend. We love an underlying vintage vibe in a cool piece that can still feel modern. Exhibit A: Kelly Wearstler for Visual Comfort.
High Point is one of our favorite events of the year because we’re able to be the first to get our hands on new products in the design world for our clients. We’ve already started designing our favorites from this year’s market into our projects. Stay tuned to see how we use these trends in new spaces…
