Spring Market in Hight Point, North Carolina was filled with new furniture and accessory lines from a variety of manufacturers. I love attending the trade only market twice a year to stay on top of all of the new offerings to make sure the solutions for my clients projects are unique and beautiful!

My first day at market did not start at the trade show site. I visited the Historical Julian Price house which was turned into a Designer Show house to benefit the Greensboro, NC Historical Society. Built in the early 1900’s, this historical house was refurbished top to bottom after its previous tenant was a known hoarder. It emerged as a breathtaking home for its new owners.

The brilliant application of wallpaper to highlight ceiling and wall details at the show house was also seen in the wide variety offered at the trade show. This is a trend that is here to stay. Whether its permanent wallpaper, or the DIY removable/non-paste version, there are colors and patterns for any style choice.

While walking the millions of square feet of show room space over 4 days in High Point, I noticed consistent themes throughout. Natural materials were everywhere, utilized for bedding, pillows and throws. Large chunky knits came in a wide variety of cozy colors and sizes. Bolder patterns for upholstery were more prevalent, as were patterned furniture in the forms of chests and consoles. One of the chests could even be customized with wallpaper on the inside cabinet doors! Unpolished Brass, ‘cage’ lighting was everywhere, making it the finish of choice over chrome or gold.

Looking forward to attending again in October!

The common element throughout is good design. There’s always a reason why an element is chosen for a certain place, whether it’s a colorful painting in a room or a specific fabric on a chair. There’s also a functionality to every item that is unique to each project’s solution. It’s sort of like an oversized jigsaw puzzle with a place and reason for each piece.

“Your rooms are like a painting. Each component is a brushstroke to create the whole picture. It’s magic every time!”
