What We Saw at High Point Market

My team and I are recently home after spending 4 days at High Point Market. If you’re unfamiliar, High Point is the largest home furnishings industry trade show in the world. It’s a lot like Fashion Week for the apparel industry. While clothing designers go to New York and Milan, tens of thousands of interior designers flock to the small city of High Point, North Carolina twice a year to see the latest and greatest in furnishings, lighting, and textiles. 

We spent our days walking through countless showrooms, scouring millions of square feet to find the very best pieces for our clients. 

While there, we uncovered some hot looks about to hit your home. 

First up, if you’ve followed me for any amount of time, you know texture is my love language, and this market did not disappoint. From corduroy fabric that begs to be touched to chunky wool rugs that you'll want to sink your toes into, texture took center stage in a big way.  

Next up, nesting tables. We saw them in groups of 2 or 3 everywhere we looked. These pieces not only save space, but they make your furniture layout more versatile. Stack 'em up, spread 'em out – the choice is yours! 

We spotted travertine and cast glass in everything from tables (above) to lighting, but perhaps the trend we saw the most was Danish cording. This intricate weaving technique adds a touch of Scandinavian flair to any piece, creating a look that's equal parts cozy and chic.  

Last, but certainly not least, we saw loads of soft colors. The one hue that stood out to us above the rest was muted green. It was everywhere. Soothing shades of sage and moss brought a breath of fresh air to most showrooms we visited. 

In fact, we liked these shades of green so much, that we have decided to dedicate our next KCI Design Journal entirely to green. What we like about it, how it can affect our moods and more.  

So stay tuned, we’re about to get a bit geeky about green

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