For impact, energy, excitement, and sheer size, no other show matches the High Point Market.” www.highpointmarket.org

Fresh from our trip to the High Point Market, we are more enthused than ever! We were busy finding unique items for our clients, but along the way spotted some interesting trends, and would like to offer up a few of our favorite styles from the Market. From elements of shine to fresh, new color palettes, High Point is never short on inspiration.

Brass

Brass is back in a big way! Check out the latest trend from the market: brass arm-chairs. An alloy made of copper and zinc, brass certainly makes a statement due to its high shine and unique finish.  It feels modern and warm all at once.

It takes some bravery to embrace the patina than comes from unlacquered brass elements, but this trend was everywhere we turned at High Point. The fluid/living nature of unlacquered brass and nickel were recently shown by Kohler Plumbing as well.

We are particularly fond of pairing the dark colors of the chair with the brassy arms and legs.

Brass Chippendale-Style Side Chairs – Traditional – Armchairs and Accent Chairs 

This simple chair has an elegant geometric ‘bamboo’ backing that offers much visual interest to the room. The brass legs are on trend and they create incredible contrast with the dark cushion. We are left with a gilded effect that is sure to bring shine to any space.

Blush

Pink, rose and blush were everywhere this year, from textiles to wallpaper. Blush was often paired with white or beige for an ultra-feminine look that still delivered that pop of color.

Photos taken at Century Furniture – Blush and gray. 

Two years ago you would have seen these paired with silver, but now there are brass touches everywhere. A pink sofa looks divine with white and gray, creating a beautiful feminine ambiance to the space.

This Mimou wallpaper is blush and art all at once with fascinating geometric patterns and a gorgeous color palette. Again, the warmth and pops of color create eye-candy for the walls and allow for a beautiful backdrop for a dramatic room.

Wallpaper

We just LOVE this wallpaper that helps to bring the outside in with trees and a touch of blue. Paired with table lamps and eclectic mirrors, we see the power of wallpaper to serve as its own form of art.

Speaking of wallpaper, watercolor wallpaper was all the rage this year, and was seen throughout the market. This blush paper shows how gestural lines are giving yet another ultra-feminine twist to a room and add a highly artistic tone to otherwise traditional furniture. The interplay between white/beige and blush can be seen yet again in this room.   This particular BlackCrow Studios watercolor look was all over market – very hot trend in the oversized print world.

High Point Market Picks – www.restylesource.com

For a spellbinding wallpaper, try this peacock feather design spotted at High Point by www.restylesource.com. Block color upholstered furniture only adds to the allure of the paper by allowing it to take center stage. The patterned peacock imagery gives an exotic feel to the space while the dramatic mirror gives the room depth and texture. Yet another example of how wallpaper becomes art when done right.
