Twice a year, our merchandising and accessories team travel to High Point, North Carolina for the famous furniture market. It is the largest home furnishings trade show in the world and covers 10 million square feet. The market lasts for six days and our team spends their time meeting vendors, viewing new pieces and purchasing items that you see in our showrooms!

During those two markets each year, new design trends come to light and you will begin to notice them all around in the upcoming months. We have rounded up our favorite new trends we saw at High Point Market just for you!

The green shade of avocado was once an enormously popular color; lucky for us, that trend has ended and we are seeing much more modern hues. Bright colors are making huge statements. Kelly green, geranium pink, canary yellow and tangerine were seen all over, just in time for spring!

Orange is not the new black, navy blue is! Our team loved how often navy blue was being shown. Paired with either neutrals or bright colors like above, navy blue is a softer alternative to black. Whether it is a sofa, painted wall or accessories, be sure to start using navy blue in your space.

Blush pink is transcending through clothing and jewelry and into our homes. It has become the newest neutral and clearly has staying power! Working with nearly any color scheme, blush pink is one of our absolute favorites.

Companies have begun to update their traditional style case goods with a modern touch of a gray stain. The wood grain and texture are much more visible, highlighting the natural imperfections. Gray is the ultimate neutral so these wood pieces are available in warm brown grays to cooler shades of gray and everything in between.

Polished nickel may not be gone, but brass is taking center stage! The gold metal pieces you are seeing everywhere now is not your grandmother s shiny brass; this updated version is more muted, often brushed and used as an accent. Our team did find one wall that was entirely gold though! Don t be afraid of mixing metals either; polished nickel and brass pair wonderfully together.

Country rustic chic is still as prevalent as ever. Faux barn door styles were seen on cocktail tables and media cabinets, while dual colored case goods and linens were prominent.

Designers are loving modernized seating apparatuses. There are more ways to sit on furniture other than sofas and chairs!

Lastly, whimsical prints were everywhere. These were seen on chairs, sofas and everywhere in between. They give you a warm funny feeling and lighten up a stuffy space!
