The Endless Search: High Point Market Trends

The Endless Search: High Point Market Trends

I always reflect on my market trips to see if any trends stand out.  The April High Point Market had quite a few.

Here are some of my favorites. These market trends will be arriving all summer At Market.  Come in and see our newly expanded space in Decor. Don’t forget to follow me on Pinterest for inventory updates!

Salmon and peach are the new shades for summer

This shade is fresh and fun.

Get Peachy
Peach/salmon is the rising color trend.  Orange is getting a new look with this salmon tone.  The next step will be pale peach.

Pink and orange is the new color combination for summer

Notice how the “orange” is actually peach.

Pink and Orange Power
Remember the hot-pink-and-bright-orange mix from the early ’80s?  It is back in a new way.

Nail heads and fabric were all the rage in High Point.

Forget nail heads and leather—nail heads and fabric are in fashion.

Fabric and Nail Heads
We will start to see more furniture that has a “fabric”finish and nail heads.

Skulls were another trend at High Point Market

Skulls don’t have to be goth. These are shabby chic.

Yes, we’ve seen it a few markets now, but I felt like this time they were really taking over.

Bunching tables were in style at High Point Market.

No more fighting over the coffee table—now there’s one for everyone.

Nesting tables were in at High Point.

Another bunching table look. I love the cut and color.

Bunching Tables
Lining up 3 or 4 small tables to create the large coffee table look has been around for years. The fact that they are becoming popular now is a statement about a lifestyle change.  Tablets, smart TVs, etc., are what we do.  Entertaining has moved into the family room and everyone wants to grab their own table and settle in with food, drink, a tablet and, if they’re lucky, the remote.

Baroque was coming back at High Point Market.

These lines are so regal.

This ’70s trend is on its way back.  It’s subtle now, but I predict it will explode.
