High Pint Market trends
This fall’s High Point Market wrapped up Oct. 22, with some 75,000 designers, retail buyers and attendees flooding the small North Carolina town to navigate its 11.6 million square feet of display space. High Point is the largest furniture trade show in the world, and thousands of new home décor items are introduced twice a year.
There’s so much to take in, but luckily for us, trend spotters are great at distinguishing themes.
Here are four new trends recognized by noted spotters – Patti Johnson, Kati Curtis, Beth Dotola and Jonathan Legate – all showcased in the Designer Preview, an official publication of High Point Market.
The items pictured are my selections — new items that, for me, capture the ethos of the trends for 2016. They’re to-the-trade and available through interior designers. You can find a list of local designers on pages 67 to 68 in R•Homes’s latest “Where to Find it Guide” (July-August 2015 issue).
