Trends Spotted at the 2012 Spring High Point Market

As you know from our posts on Eastern Accents Bedding and Facebook , Home on the Range designers Lynne Barton Bier and Susan Howard made the journey from Colorado to North Carolina to attend the recent High Point Furniture Market, a huge industry event that takes place biannually. With thousands of exhibitors showcasing fresh products, the show often prompts the emergence of many new design trends, and the Spring 2012 market was no exception. The High Point Market has now released its Spring/Summer 2012 Market Style Report, revealing the following furnishings trends, among others:

Handmade, artisan items—or pieces appearing to be hand-made—are popular.

Currey & Company

Suitcase-inspired wares and trunks are appealing to people who love traveling.

Global Views

Nesting tables are on the rise again, and the trend has taken a turn toward “hidden seating” as well.

Some of the other trends Lynne and Susan noticed were the proliferation of bold patterns and colors and the wonderful Ikats that were on everything from pillows to rugs to bedding.

And the reclaimed industrial look that we have been using in rustic design for a few years is now being used in both urban and more traditional interior design.

We also loved all of the amazing mirror designs and materials we discovered around each corner!  Mirrors are taking the place of art in many areas of the home because of their sculptural and reflective qualities.

We loved the shape of this mirror from Made Goods

The shades and varied lengths of the reclaimed wood are really eye catching in this mirror from Made Goods
