It s spring time and that means lots of things baby birds, sprouting seedlings, warm breezes and of course FRESH colors at High Point Market! Here are a few takeaways from our trip to the world s largest furniture trade show in High Point, North Carolina.

Upholstery trends observed throughout the HP market showrooms: neutral fabrics (predominantly greige) paired with vibrant accent colors.

Tip to take home: covering key pieces in a neutral fabric allows you the freedom to switch out pillows and accents effortlessly. Trends may come and go but investing in beautifully crafted furniture in a neutral base fabric means your room will always feel current.

Animal prints are hot this season!

New bedroom intros in White finishes feel fresh and modern! Great in your coastal home as well.

Relax & unwind - A new leather chair with an upscale appearance feels at home in any room setting while providing extraordinary comfort!

This is a great example of textural based neutrals and geometric patterns expertly combined with soft teal. The soft abstract art unifies this room setting, while the animal print rug adds a playful twist.

Playful indeed! Blue and white is always a winning combination and this soft blue wing swivel glider is beyond comfortable! A fun pop of cherry red adds energy to the mix.

An unexpected and sophisticated combination of earthy moss green, violet and blush is a modern approach to a traditional room setting.

As you can see, there is no shortage of fabulous design this season. Whether your taste is classic and traditional, purely coastal, or modern and of the moment we have something for you! Look for several of these exciting trends to appear on our showroom floors soon!
