High Point Furniture Market - Trend Report for 2013

I just returned from High Point International Furniture Market and I must say, it was one of the best markets I have attended in a long, long time!  Time prevented me from visiting all the showrooms I had planned to visit, but the ones I did visit, did not disappoint. 

Pin The Saturn Table From Here!
Brass is definitely back in a big way!  Don't you love this great little "Saturn" Table from Taylor-Burke Home?  It is the perfect drinks table. Who doesn't feel sassy sitting their martini glass down on a slice of agate? This table is available in gold and silver, but gold is "THE TREND"

Orange is everywhere!  For those of you who love orange as I do, there was plenty to buy in orange at this market.  Here is the Dunes and Duchess four arm candelabra in trendy orange with matching orange shade.  Lots of orange love here! This was their first time showing at High Point Furniture Market so we were happy to find them!

There were lots of showrooms with color.  I saw pinks, plums, purples, greens and many other colors represent but I must say the most popular color combo at market was orange and cobalt blue.  Shown here in a beautiful cut velvet pillow named "Andy" by Piper Collection.  This is a new collection with lots of noteworthy goodness.  

  Agate was everywhere!  Dying here over these agate sconce from Ro-sham-beaux.  These sconce are wired for outdoor use and made with the natural stone geode slices, perfect for a porch or patio.

 If you want to see a complete recap curated by nine design professionals make sure to visit the High Point Market Style Spotter Board.  The Style Spotter boards give a quick view into what's trending at the October 2013 High Point Market.  I'm sharing a few of the trends I saw here, but to see more trends pop over to the style spotter boards.  I will be giving a full re-cap later as well.

Of course I am in the High Point Market Style Spotter contest and would love you to vote for me by "repinning" and "liking" the items on my board here.  Remember if you are going to "repin" do it from my board here.

    1. I hope you do! If you do let me know you are coming so we can meet up!

  3. I love gold and brass and that side table is very chic. I love their creativity with the agate slices and the sconce. I had wondered about trying out some sort of backslash or something with them, but I"m not sure if that would work.
