Trend Report

In furniture, rugs, lighting, fabrics, and color, designers give the lowdown on what they saw at High Point



Published:

The 19-inch-high tini II, in Fireworks color, with a quadrille zigzag top, from Oomph. Bold colors were big at High Point.

 

 

I saw a lot of beautifully produced pillow lines using great fabrics in all kinds of colors, textures, and patterns.

In the decorative-lighting category, I found that a lot of new releases were cylindrical.

It appears that gray is still dominating, but it’s being paired with more electric hues, such as citrus and copper.

With furnishings, the new designer lines married industrial elements with the more refined.

You continue to see a lot of bleached oak, which I think has been done to death.

— Marianne Jones Hauswirth

 

This market was very worldly. It was ethnic and beautiful with lots of things from Bali and China [and other exotic places].

— Lucy Earl

 

Navy blue is very hot this season.

— Marianne Jones Hauswirth

 

There’s still a big focus on texture and organic motifs. A good example of that is found with the splendid new collection by Barry Dixon. His new Laurel chair was perhaps my favorite.

— Corey Damen Jenkins

 

Hickory Chair is the major showroom at the Mart. They’re the big trendsetters at the moment.

— Lucy Earl

 

There are two great lines for fun, intense color in small side tables and accessories with beautiful finishes: Bungalow 5 and Oomph.

— Marianne Jones Hauswirth

 

The rug market has changed. It’s down a whole new road with patchworks, over-dyes, ikats, simple textiles, and lots of hides.

— Lucy Earl

 

One of my favorite pieces was a poured-resin concrete dining table and stools from a distributor out of California. Great clean lines and beautiful natural colors, very “Napa.”

— Marianne Jones Hauswirth

 

There were bold colors everywhere. Lots of fuchsia, purple, deep blues, bright yellow, and bold patterns. Lots of ikats and embroidered fabrics in big patterns.

— Lucy Earl

 

Lillian August was wild and bold. 

— Lucy Earl

 

Ikat [resist dyeing] is hot in both rugs and fabric.

—Marianne Jones Hauswirth
