I recently returned from High Point Market with the Design Bloggers Tour (catch up here). I was asked to join in the tour , along with several other influencers. The trip was awesome due to many reasons, but mainly seeing what others were naturally drawn to, that you normally wouldn’t notice. Therefore pulling your attention to a certain detail or item that you normally would have passed by.
Ahhhh, I’m back after being out of town almost the entire month of October!
We had a jam.packed.whirlwind two days at High Point Market. We arrived bright and early before 8am each day, and were crawling into bed by 10pm. It was the most info filled trip on furniture and textiles that I have ever been too.
I am incredibly grateful for every thing that I learned about the vendors and the new items and trends that I saw….which makes me giddy about the parade homes this year!!
We ran through 15 show rooms for The Design Bloggers High Point Fall Market Tour:
Bernhardt – Clean Lines, Moody Colors, Organic Texture, Perfect Transitional Design
Thibaut Fine Furniture – Color, Lots of Color and Texture and Contrast. Mad Texture. Gorgeous pieces that made you want to reach out and touch every item. Oh, almost forgot to mention the vinyl.wallpaper. Yeah…let that sink in.
Norwalk – Definitely one of my highlights. The fabric and patterns made me happy. Clean, comfy pieces that are super welcoming and makes you feel right at home. Inviting texture and classic, soft lines.
Cisco – This building was definitely the best location and meshed so extremely well with their laid back, boho style. Lots of emotion, layers, mixed materials and oversized pieces….and they had an indoor swing 😉
Stickley – Arts & Crafts style with an updated look. Warm tones, soft curves and traditional living.
Universal – I was ready for this showroom after ordering many pieces for homeowners over the past year. This line covers a wide range of styles, but I love the light tones, straight lines and bold impact each piece has in a space.
Fourhands – Ah, my bread and butter. I have visited their other showrooms and was excited to see them on our tour, and to touch the brand.new.pieces. Think mid century modern with warm tones, lots of soft leather and lightly stained pieces adding in a ton of texture.
Surya – I definitely scoped out a ton of rugs here and loved seeing the new patterns, colors and textures they have coming out…not to mention the price point. Warm tones, soft curves and layers upon layers. Besides those rugs, they also had a ton of super cool lamps I need to toss in!
Dorel Home – Colors, lots of moody, jewel toned colors with clean lines and simple shapes. Crazy affordable and maintaining great style!
Lloyd Flanders – Organic, Natural Textures. Soft, Warm wood tones and durable pieces that are crazy comfortable.
Hudson Valley – This is already one of my main go-to’s for lighting options and I loved seeing their new collections. Whites, metals, natural materials, soft lines and warm gold tones.
EJ Victor – Super cool building that carried a wide variety of styles and brands (Ralph Lauren, Kelley Wearstler, etc.). Lots of color and playful patterns with textures that I constantly touched…it’s my thing. Velvets, Leathers, Glass and Marble.
Aidan Gray – I’ve used pieces, mainly lighting, here and there but even more I was blown away by their newest furniture line….hello *lover* acrylic chair 😉 Tons of texture with a classic, french look.
Modern History – Even the name oozes style, because of high shine…glass, mirrors, gold and lacquer. High style and impactful pieces.
A packed two days, right?? Ill be back next week narrowing down trends that I saw repeatedly and pieces that I think will be key players this upcoming year and finally wrapping up with my absolute favorites!
