Trend Report: First Look from Spring Market

Spring High Point  Market did not disappoint- though we could have done without the torrential rains! Brands continue to transition into more product categories – toward the holy grail of Lifestyle. There with entrances into the Home decor arena from outside players such as the Amazon Home collaboration with Apartment Therapy and Cloth and Kind and Elle Decor. There were more than several new exhibitors and, of course, some great product launches like Bunny Williams for Bunny Williams Home and Currey and Co., Jeffery Bilhuber for Henredon, Windsor Smith for Century, Michelle Workman for French Heritage and Alexander Julian for Universal. The much anticipated opening of Christopher Guy’s new High Point showroom was fabulous; so Christopher Guy!

Jackie and I have  compared notes, downloaded our pics and complied our trend report for Spring High Point Market. The snapshot report contains our top takeaways from this season’s show.  For your convenience, it’s available on demand HERE. Or check out the sneak peek below.

Belly up to the Bar

Design transferal is still alive and well in home furnishings. We spotted bar cabinets sprinkled through market 2 seasons ago; this market you could find them in all iterations- on legs, on wheels, tall, short and at all price points.

Resource Decor’s Sting Cabinet

Deb’s favorite was Steven Leung’s Bar cabinet for Theodore Alexander.


Take a Step Back

We spotted this chest on chest, stepped case goods and predict this is the next thing- like swivel chairs or German silver have been i the past. Micheal Berman’s take on it was the stepped  back side table with 60’s inspiration but with all the Berman sophistication and flair.
