For those of you who are unfamiliar with High Point Market, it’s pretty much an exhausting but extravagant dream in the interior design world. It’s where you go to discover new product and upcoming trends. So what’s trending for 2014, you ask? Here's a little taste of the captivating product and trends we gathered from this year’s market:
Unexpected Use of Color – Shades of indigo, cobalt, sapphire and aquamarine rounded out the shades of blue that seemed to be the dominating color this year. Less expected were pairings like spring green and pops of teal and orange in traditional style furniture.
Most Represented Style – Mid-Century Modern. Stanley Furniture is reaching back into its archives to revive Mid-Century modern pieces from its past. Stanley is introducing its Heritage Collection at High Point Market, 40 pieces of authentic Mid-Century Furniture originally manufactured by Stanley between 1950 and 1969.
Lacquered Furniture – This was big this year. Put a fresh coat of lacquer on a traditional piece of furniture and voila! You have something fun and fresh. Whether you choose to go neutral or add a pop of color, a little bit of lacquer can go a long way. It is amazing how the sheen of lacquer can quickly uplift a space.
Diverse Lighting – Big and small, beautiful chandeliers to interesting shaped lamps, we found lots of new exciting new styles that we can’t wait to incorporate in our upcoming projects.
Abstract Art – We are loving all of the abstract art we have seen recently. Across all mediums, the colors have been vibrant and the content inspiring and thought-provoking.
Metallics – Add a touch of luxe to your room with gold or silver. It is popularly being used in accessories, drinks tables, mirrors, cocktail tables and consoles. Like the finishing touches to complete an outfit, metallics are a chic addition to any space!
