Highpoint Market Trends | Fall 2018
While you are relaxing on your Thanksgiving evening, dosing in and out of that turkey induced nap, and plotting your Black Friday plan of attack, it is the perfect time for us to share what design trends have recently popped up on our radar!
Twice a year, the Lisa Scheff team takes a trip to High Point Market-the largest furniture and design market. On these trips we seek out the latest trends and get inspired by other companies and designers. The previous spring market sent us home with our creative juices overflowing. This Fall trip was all of that and then some! We love walking through High Point, head on a swivel, taking it all in. We keep our client’s projects in mind, look for the perfect pieces to complete the vision, and take ideas home to share with all of you!
Here are three of the top trends we spotted throughout the entire market, and have big plans for in 2019!
Trend | Shades of Grey:
Every time we visit High Point, we notice the colors that continuously pop up in each display, and we take note. Last year, I remember writing about the colors dark green and blush being used in almost every display. But this year those colors were nowhere to be seen. That just goes to show that trending colors come and go just as quickly as the seasons (literally).
However, this market was different. High Point Fall 2018 was all about shades of gray. To be honest, we have always had a soft spot for grey, so we were happy to see this! Grey is classic, timeless, and trend-proof. From moody and stormy to soft and delicate, grey is one of the most versatile colors in our palette. We saw it on couches, in blankets, artwork, lamps, and even rugs-and we loved all of it!
Trend | Bold Geometrical Patterns:
While we saw the safe grey all over High Point, we also saw the use of bold geometric patterns as accent pieces. Benches, lamps, wallpaper, credenzas, you name it! These patterns, when used correctly, give a room personality and add an element of surprise. Plus, when you have a room that needs a little bit of contrast piece with a geometric design is the way to go.
The clean lines and simple color palettes recede into the background but provide the perfect visual texture in any room. We are all about this trend, when used correctly. When it comes to adding geometric patterns, scale is everything. Too much of a good thing can be dizzying, depending on the size of the space. Interested in incorporating a piece like this into your home? We can help!
Trend | Making A Statement:
We are big fans of using a statement piece in a room. Something that draws the eye and keeps the space moving and lively. A statement piece is the perfect middle ground between bold patterns and neutral tones. Not too much, not too little-always just enough.
Statement pieces provide a functional wow-factor, remain timeless and add some eye-catching excitement to the room. These are a great way to let your style really shine through in the room you are designing. When it comes to planning the inside of your home we always suggest showing your personality through parts of the design.
At High Point Market this year, we saw great ways to make a bold statement through a single piece of furniture. There were side tables with eye catching patters, chairs with shiny, new age design, and benches that look like metal weave! We are excited to incorporate some of these ideas into our designs!
If you are considering treating yourself to a room renovation this holiday season, perhaps these trends will persuade you to do just that.
