High Point Market furniture trends are on display now and what a fabulous stimulus to the senses!  The new collections are more sophisticated than ever as designers are applying more advanced techniques and fresh embellishments to make furniture look like works of art. Frankly, I was blown away by the sheer beauty of the showrooms this year. After spending three days admiring all the displays, I’ve definitely got a beauty buzz and plenty of creative inspiration!

Quite simply, there is a vibe of comfortable elegance that seamlessly blends classic styles with current finishes and fabrics while sprinkling luxurious showrooms with rustic artifacts without flinching. The look this season feels balanced, stylish, fresh and tasteful – totally current while comfortably embracing the past.

Take a look at some of my favorite looks from High Point this season.

MODERN OASIS: The modern oasis look is right on trend , which blends modern furniture forms with contemporary materials and brings the feel of the outdoors inside the home. Here are some beautiful pieces that are all made for indoor living – love this earthy chic style!

FRENCH FARMHOUSE: French farmhouse chic furnishings, one of my personal favorites, continues to be popular, although this year the finishes are softer, with white and blue washes applied more gently over natural wood. Love it!

COASTAL CHIC: In line with the oasis look, coastal chic is a rising trend for homes all across the U.S. – not just on the coast.  As a result, furniture makers are creating more refined beach-inspired pieces that will blend with traditional decor, and these items were shown with pride at High Point Market this season!

This style puts a modern twist on furniture forms while maintaining some traditional French features and finishes. Interior designers are blending these pieces with glamorous modern decor for a look that is stunning. Take a look at some of the modern French looks on display at High Point Market.

ARTIFACTS CHIC: The rise of artifact decor was a visually breathtaking trend at High Point Market this year. Designers are taking inspiration from found objects, relics and ancient artwork to create splendid decor that brings the past into the present in a way that feels fresh and modern.
