High Point

Every October, I travel to High Point, NC for the semi-annual Furniture and Accessories Market in search of new products, new trends, and a large dose of inspiration.  This past market was no exception!

There was a lot of reclaimed wood, distressing, and hammered looks on many different pieces.  There were many geometric designs, and ikat design is still very strong (shown below on bedding from Eastern Accents).

As far as colors are concerned, there was a lot of blue, both deep dark tones and bright blues.  Navy was paired frequently with emerald, which is the 2013 color of the year.  Teal and orange were also seen frequently in the vignettes.  Taupe and gray combinations were again very popular.

It will be interesting to learn the 2014 Pantone color of the year, which should be released soon.
