"Trends We're Loving" Part 2

My team and I are heading to High Point, North Carolina this month for what is the equivalent of the clothing industry’s Fashion Week. 


High Point Market is essentially a candy store for designers, where thousands of manufacturers display their latest and greatest products.  


  • We’ll see what furniture and lighting makers have been up to in the last year.  

  • We’ll shop for some of our existing and upcoming projects.  

  • And we’ll get a pulse on the trends we’ll see this Fall and beyond. 


Speaking of trends, last month we brought you a couple of design trends we’re loving right now:  

Traditional Styles and Warm Neutrals. 

And we shared some ways you can incorporate those trends into your home. See last month’s trends here: Design Trends We’re Loving – Part 1. 

This month, we’re looking at a few more ways to incorporate what’s in vogue in home decor.


Natural Materials

Texture is key. This Spring, bring the outdoors in with these natural elements: 

Rattan and Cane: Incorporate these materials in furniture, light fixtures, or decorative accents. They add depth and visual interest

Ausland Interiors 

Riad Tile and Burke Decor

Jute Rugs: These eco-friendly rugs provide both texture and durability. They’re perfect for high-traffic areas. 

Loloi Rugs

Hand-Thrown Ceramics in Matte Finish: Think vases and bowls. These pieces add character and a touch of rustic charm.  

Unlacquered Brass 

Move over, glossy finishes; unlacquered brass is all the rage. Like other more natural materials, unlacquered brass develops a beautiful patina as it ages, making it feel like it’s always been there. 

We’re The Whites and Amber Interiors 

Understated Bedding 

Finally, less is more when it comes to bed styling. Pare down your pillows because spa-like minimalism is in. Choose crisp white sheets, lightweight blankets, a couple of sleeping pillows, and an oversized lumbar. Voila! Your bed can be made in no time. 

April Tomlin Interiors and W Design Collective 


Stay tuned for next month’s KCI Design Journal, where we’ll recap what we saw at High Point Market. And follow us on Instagram to see some of our favorite finds while we’re there. 

Until Next Month.....We're Glad You're Here!
