High Point Market is a time to see the latest and greatest items that will hit the retail market in 6-9 months. This is a great way for us to stay ahead of our industry and find great products to bring to our clients. It also gives us a chance to find new vendors, create and maintain relationships, attend parties, see design friends, and be inspired.
Since we could not attend we decided to lean on our design friends and vendors to give us a brief rundown of what they saw and what was happening at Market.
The overall trends seen were the following:
Color (Yellow, Greens, Creams, Golds)
More Statement Case Goods
Metals mixed with Woods
Caramel Colored Leather
