High Point International Furniture market occurred last week. Every six months buyers from all countries ascend upon this little North Carolina country town to preview and buy furniture, accessories and rugs from around the world.
The town’s locals often go on vacation to escape, renting out their houses to visiting buyers and reps; hotels at all levels are totally booked during normal times; restaurants and caterers work over time to wine and dine the hungry throngs.
Although this fall’s market was not as heavily attended as those in the past most manufacturers were still represented and putting on a good show for those who came and for follow up video presentations.
We captured photos of new product, our favorite designers, and inspiration to share with you.
What are the trends? All over the map but retro, 60’s, 70’s , 80’s lines are still influencing design for better or worse. Does it all look alike? No, but a lot of it does. Is everything still gray? Happily, no! Neutrals are warming up and we see a variety of colors at last.
We’ll start with one of our favorite intros, The Everett Collection for HICKORY CHAIR by Skip Rumley. Your comments will be welcome. Enjoy.
