Hot Trends at High Point Market April 2013

Last Night I participated in my first ever twitter chat.  Have you done one? 

Let me tell you it moves really fast when there are lots of people in the room.  My head was 

still spinning this morning just thinking about it!  It was tons of excitement though!  The chat 

was lead by the fab Lisa Ferguson of Decor Mentor and five of her designer mentors, Lisa  

Pulp Design Studios  curated their favorite new High Point Market introductions from over 

299 entries of pictures that were sent to them by Cheminne Taylor-Smith, Vice President of 

Marketing for the High Point Market.  What are the trends I spotted? Honeycomb patterns, 

emerald green is obviously the color of the year and we saw brass!!!

What to see some of the items picked for the chat?

The first item introduced in the chat was this honeycomb bookcase by Henredon.  

It drew gasps even on twitter!

Toodles!  Have a great Thursday!!!!

Pin It!


  1. I love it all, it has a nod to a bygone era and I can hear the ice clinking and the conversation with words like, "chipper, atta girl, love your dress"
    All very up beat and happy! Very Cecil Beaton.
    If you ever design your own line, I'd love to illustrate it.

    1. I love that Patricia! And when I design my line you shall be the first I call!

  2. What a "fun" working Day! Can only imagine how doing a room in a ShowHouse can be very stressful...BUT....FUN AND REWARDING!

    1. You are so right my friend. It is a mix of both but mostly fun! I met the most delightful young man yesterday who is doing work in our room.

  3. I was looking at the new Made Goods catalog earlier today and that fixture was a stand out to me. Guess I wasn't alone. I am carrying the Surya line in my new shop and have been really impressed with their new introductions! Hope you had a productive day at the showhouse!

    1. You have such fab taste I am not surprised!! Yes, yesterday was productive but I did not get home until 8 pm. am really tired this morning but things are coming along nicely!

  4. Awesome furniture..loved the book case..:)
