As British designer Alexander McQueen once said, “There is no better designer than nature.” This was more than obvious at the Highpoint Market this year. Au naturale decor was everywhere. After all, what is is more comforting than bringing the beauty, colors and textures of the outdoors in?
These petrified wood and shell nesting tables from Bernhardt caught my attention immediately.
Agate Crystals were everywhere!
I prefer them as an organic accessory like this:
This is agate gone sexy at Couture Lamps:
Leaning towards nature made for gorgeous merchandising in several showrooms.
Like these air plants suspended in glass terrariums at Rowe:
Or this simple collection at Studio A/Global Views:
Combinations of iron, wood and metal was a theme we saw repeated over and over. Who can deny the texture, interest and shapes these materials lend to the aesthetic of a space?
And let’s not forget the versatility of natural stone as shown in this table from Gabby Home.
And then there’s wood. Solid, beautiful, REAL wood – no veneers, no mdf, no factory produced fake stuff. Scrumptious.
So there you have it as confirmed by the trend setters at the Highpoint Market. Bring the outdoors in. All the time. It will never go out of style.
