Every April and October for a week, High Point Market is the event to attend. Design professionals make their pilgrimage to High Point, North Carolina to see what’s new and what’s next in home decor and furniture design. This fall I made my way to what I call “fashion week for furniture” and it was exciting, enlightening, and exhausting. And it was eye opening as to why it’s necessary for serious design professionals like me to make the trip.
Being on the left coast, I’ve attended Las Vegas Market where many of the vendors and showrooms show their newest products. But even the suppliers that I met in Vegas kicked it up a couple notches for high Point Market. The three mile radius of endless showrooms and party-like atmosphere could have your head spinning. So a plan is a must.
The goal for me during this market was to see how I could educate my clients on what will work in their designs while they incorporate new styling that they will enjoy for years. One recurring theme I noticed was that coffee tables are getting much larger. In addition, there is a visual play so as not to overwhelm the room with such a large piece.
Look at this beautiful live edge wood table that floats glass in the middle. Visually this gives the eye a rest.
High Point Market is known for showing furniture trends for upcoming seasons. We also get to see future innovations in interior design. This beautiful piece by Noir of Los Angeles was actually two separate wood pieces that could be used like you see it here allowing guests to walk through or pull the tables closer for use. The actual footprint of these pieces give you the ability to have more surface space while entertaining. And it also gives you flexibility. How cool that they can be used as side tables too.
Talk about innovation! Who says that the surface has to be all at the same level. Interesting, functional and fun has to be the theme of this coffee table. Put your personality in your home. Give Mary Etta Designs a call for more ideas on how you can decorate with design pieces that will last you for years to come.
