Metallics are huge, generally coronet and flushed gold. Bling is display adult in bedding and pillows. Neutral colors are relocating from walls to furniture. And oversized seat is out, transposed by low-slung or sleeker profiles.
Those are some of a trends speckled during this year’s High Point Furniture Market, that finished final week. We asked 4 Wake County designers to share what they saw as new or stability trends during a many new market.
Vara Bell of Decor a la Carte in Raleigh
▪ Fashionable furniture. Fashion designers Kate Spade and Cynthia Rowley debuted lines of seat and home taste pieces. Spade has designed about 35 pieces for Morganton-based EJ Victor, while Rowley has partnered with Hooker Furniture in Virginia to emanate a line of some-more than 150 pieces. A prominence of Bell’s marketplace revisit was Rowley’s Fleur de Glee Writing Desk with a dainty floral settlement gracing a front of a black desk. The flowers were printed, not hand-painted, in a digital process.
▪ Embellished seat fronts. Similar to a Crowley desk, Bell speckled several other distinguished examples of seat with musical fronts, including forged steel and nail-head trims. One superb instance was a Janak, a four-door cupboard with lacquered grasscloth, timber and diamond-patterned spike heads from Bungalow 5. Another was a Camilia armoire by Koket from DeMorias International, that facilities a hand-carved, bullion root peacock.
▪ Glammed adult organics. Designers are adding a hold of glamor to healthy materials, such as leather, fur, driftwood and seashells. Two examples: the gold-flecked animal censor rug from City Chic Rug Collection by Michael Amini for Nourison and a Plinth list lamps by Bliss Studio, that span gold-toned lamps with crystals and shells.
Elizabeth Carrasco of VIP Interior Design in Raleigh
▪ Neutrals interconnected with pops of color. Walls and vast seat pieces are adhering to some-more neutral tones, such as white, taupe and gray. Brightly colored accents are total around rugs, pillows and even patterned timber building tiles and step treads, like those from Mirth Studio in Charleston, S.C.
▪ Metallics are popping adult in an array of hues: antique gold, china and black metal. They are display adult alone and total on accessories, tables, chairs and generally lighting, like a bullion leaf-tiered Havana Grande chandelier from wholesaler Currey Co.
▪ Midcentury modern. Carrasco pronounced a a midcentury cultured can be seen in seat and accessories. She highlighted a jewelry-inspired iron wall taste pieces by Texas-based Global Views, that facilities coronet balls in dual sizes on winding frames. The midcentury cultured also can be seen in seat removing smaller and sleeker. For years, she said, seat got bigger as houses got larger. Now, not usually are houses smaller though little houses are popular, and so seat is downsizing. Carrasco highlighted a wood-backed occasional chair from Fairfield, a Lenoir-based chair company, which, like a lot of this character furniture, looks good from all angles.
Jeff Snyder of Simon’s House Interiors in Raleigh
▪ Contemporary furniture. Snyder agrees that a form of seat is removing reduce and some-more streamlined, like a Emerson Club lounge by High Point-based Verellen. He points out that these pieces demeanour improved than bulky, oversized seat in today’s some-more open vital spaces.
▪ Brass. “What I’m saying each year is some-more and some-more brass,” Snyder said. “It shows adult on lighting, accessories and as accents on dressers, chairs and tables, like a Soho and Sardo side tables by California-based Noir.
▪ Sculptural timber styles. Snyder saw a lot of accents pieces, such as bar stools, side tables and bowls, mimicking a demeanour of healthy timber and branches. “Accent pieces are an easy and protected approach to go outward a box,” Snyder said. “It’s not a outrageous investment by a manufacturer, and it’s not a outrageous investment by a consumer.” He highlighted a three-legged Sable stools and side tables by Made Goods and a branch-inspired legs on a Piers Bar Stool by High Point-based Vanguard Furniture.

▪ Bling is still hot. Frank pronounced a trend continues with shimmering fabrics for bedding from Ann Gish and metallic-toned pillows, like a Arjana, a hand-crafted sham with silver, bullion and gunmetal beading from Pyar Co. The 14-by-20-inch sham would make an glorious focal indicate for a master bedroom, Frank said.
▪ Rose gold. “It’s not mauve. It’s not pink. It’s not mocha,” Frank said. But this shimmery flushed paint cropped adult on a array of coffee tables, side tables and even a list from Jonathan Charles Furniture and on a Vega Pendant flare from Bliss Studio.
▪ Gray, gray and some-more gray. This neutral tone went from walls to furniture, like a Kria Footboard Sofa in pearl gray and a Miranda flare list in a steely gray, both from High Point-based Vanguard Furniture. “The new beige is gray,” Frank said.
