Hi everyone! I just returned home from the High Point Market Design Bloggers Tour. It was inspiring, fun, educational and exhausting all at the same time. I have SOOOO much to share and over a thousand photos to plow through and edit. My more detailed trend report will be up early next week but for today’s Friday Photo I have a photo to share that I took at the Mr. Brown show room.

Mr. Brown Home High Point Market

Not all of these eight trends are new but overall, this photo is a good representation of what was showing at High Point Market.

  1. Color: Persimmon, coral, watermelon, pink, blush and all the various hues of RED are trending.
  2. Brass and gold finishes were EVERYWHERE. Brass definitely outweighed all other finishes at the Spring market.
  3. Mid century is still going strong. The floor lamp, the hanging brass pendants and the chairs.
  4. Armoires are back: We don’t need them to hide bulky TV’s anymore but with all the talk of downsizing and living small it seems we just can’t get enough storage.
  5. Decorative fronts on case goods. I will talk much more about this in my report next week but get ready for sculpted, faceted, hammered, printed and wallpapered fronts on case goods.
  6. Mixed materials. Mirrored glass and laser cut wood tall cabinet. The table has a stained wood base, a faux shagreen (Sting ray skin) top and a brass edge on both the table top and base.
  7. Geometrics: The arms on the chairs
  8. Antiques mixed in with new: An antique wood bowl on a stand on the table

Have a great weekend everyone….I’ll be editing and editing and editing!
