November 3rd, 2015 | Interior Design Trends
High Point Market is one of the home decor and furnishing industry’s largest, most influential trade shows. Each year, in the spring and fall, tens of thousands of buyers, interior designers, and editors descend on the North Carolina town to check out the latest offerings from manufactures from around the world. It’s a hotbed for trendspotting, and influences much of what interior designers and retailers offer in the coming year.
While we weren’t able to attend the most recent market, which took place at the end of October, we always make sure to pay close attention to what’s going on through social and trade media. It gives us a great idea of what sorts of styles might be on their way out, and what to keep an eye out for in the coming months. Below, we’ve recapped a few of the biggest trends that caught out eye.
The color pink. Pink is typically thought of as a juvenile color, best used in nurseries and kids rooms, but the hue was hot for grown up decor this year, too. Because the shades of pink were deep and saturated, the look was surprisingly sophisticated. Most of the pink pieces we saw were accents, perfect for adding a pop of color to a room.
High-Fashion Decor. Along with two new major designer collaborations that launched at market–Kate Spade for E.J. Victor, and Cynthia Rowley for Hooker Furniture–there was also a trend toward furniture and decor inspired by iconic fashion houses, prints, and styles.
Acrylic. The acrylic and lucite furniture trend has been around for a while now, but this market, manufacturers took a different spin on it, mixing the acrylic with other materials like burled wood, brass, and leather.
Mongolian fur. Another trend that’s persisted over the last few seasons, Mongolian fur is holding strong as the high-style upholstery of choice.
Chain link prints. Houzz called out this trend, and it’s one we saw a lot on social media, too. Chain links formed furniture bases, were printed on rugs, used to hold up lamps, and more.
