Tales from High Point

By Joey LaSalle 

As many of you know, I recently had the opportunity to scout an enormous variety of furnishings and decor at High Point market for Lovelace. As an Interior Designer,  market is the ultimate playground housing over 12.2 MILLION SQUARE FEET of showroom space.  In the myriads of concepts that are shown at the market, certain items emerge as a consistent thread through out.  Call them trends, fads, or fashions, as the largest market in the world, this is the origin of what everyone will be seeing showing up in stores, and inevitably homes over the next year.  Some of these will overlap into next year as well, but the TOP 4 UNIVERSAL TRENDS from the 2013 Market was 1.) Shagreen 2.) Geodes and 3.) Antlers  and 4.) Green!

1.) Shagreen Again: So many furniture companies are offering an assortment of wrapped casegoods. We saw an incredible amount of side tables, coffee tables, dressers, night stands and even entire dining tables wrapped in leather, linen, stainless, zinc, shagreen (sharkskin) or even burlap! You may not have paid attention to it before, but now you’ll definitely recognize just how much this trend is catching on.


2.) Rockin Geodes:  Stones like Blue Agate, Agastone, Angel Jasper & Malachite. Semi-Precious Stone was in every showroom whether it was being used as an accessory, artwork, for entire wall installations, or even furniture!


3.) Antlers….yes, Antlers: Real Antlers, Ceramic Antlers, Acrylic Antlers, Carved Antlers, Polycarbonate Antlers, Painted Antlers, Embroidered Antlers….in just about every single showroom there were antlers on walls, lamps and chandeliers, table top accessories and even in bedding and on pillows. Did I mention Antlers?


4.) It’s Still GREEN in 13!  The most universal color that has been a constant this year is Green!  Whether Emerald Green or Kelly Green, walls or upholstery, green is your color!
