Fall Market in High Point NC did not disappoint this season! The focus was a more personalized expression, living with the things you love. This style being named HYGGE (pronounced Hugga) which is the idea that the ‘good stuff’ is located inside our homes, as explained by the respected trends forecaster Michelle Lamb.
Many of the showrooms showed a more elegant and luxurious story. The buzz words were: GOLD, BRASS, LINEAR and LINES. Darker colors in JEWEL TONES were seen in fabrics and paint colors, as well as metal accents in furniture details.
The trend curve is to add color to our neutrals. And FYI, Grey is not a trend, it is in the core and here to stay! We are seeing our neutral pallet expand to include browns and beiges with our favorite greys. Soft pink is everywhere and being designated as a neutral.
We saw many traditional pieces that were modernized, mirrors as a design detail in furniture and accessories, metallics and luster, oversized weaves, natural materials, and gold accessories.
Both Michelle Lamb and forcaster Stacy Garcia agree that a new Art Deco style is also emerging. One that includes silk and satin, velvets, chagrin and seagrass, exotic woods, and matte lacquer.
