SKD Report: High Point Market Spring Trends

We are finally back from High Point Market and ready to round up all our favorites from the trip, and of course, report all the trends we saw!

If you followed our stories on Instagram, thank you!! We absolutely love knowing that you’re along for the ride!

The biggest theme we observed at High Point Market this spring continued to be a shift towards natural, textural items, with clean, modern lines. This trend has been building for a while now, especially in home remodeling, where an indoor-outdoor feel and natural materials are more popular than ever. It’s so cool to watch the big design trends trickle down to the furniture market! We saw so many things made of (or inspired by) handmade and natural materials, like rattan, clay / plaster, jute, woven cane, etc.

I’m breaking down this big trend into five smaller trends we noticed, which I’ll walk you through below. I hope you enjoy our finds, and don’t forget to leave us a note below to tell us your favorite!

High Point Market Spring Trend: Green Everything

It’s no secret that green has been playing a big role in home décor trends recently.  Hunter Green is becoming a new neutral, and we are so digging it! We saw TONS of green palm leaves, branches, and foliage this market (again, no surprise, especially for Spring) but we were pleasantly surprised to see so many green finishes on casegoods! We love how the showrooms pair the rich green with lots of natural textures, which keep things from feeling too glam.

Gorgeous, vibrant green velvets on upholstery… We saw a lot of stock upholstery being introduced in green! We even saw dark green leather…

Fun leafy green pattern play, mixed with lots of matte textures…

High Point Market Spring Trend: White Plaster

White plaster is another trend that has been building for quite some time, but really blew up this spring.  We especially saw this trend on light fixtures!! The plaster’s texture with the matte white finish creates a super clean look that doesn’t feel too modern.

The original plaster…

And the new version! We love it on casegoods and table lamps…

High Point Market Spring Trend: Faux Raffia

You know I love a good grasscloth wallpaper, but raffia on upholstery?? You betcha! We’ve seen plenty of raffia on casegoods, but this market we saw so much raffia or faux raffia fabric on soft upholstery. Chairs, beds, pillows, you name it. It adds amazing texture, but is still soft to the touch and comfortable! We are so excited to see this trend grow!

Here it is on the back of upholstered chairs…

High Point Market Spring Trend: Feathers and Fringe

Another nature-inspired element that had a serious moment this market. We saw so many fringed mirrors and feathered light fixtures!

Can you even stand how cute these light fixtures are?! We could see these hanging in a girl’s bedroom…

High Point Market Spring Trend: Wood with Woven Cane

Cane and rattan have been everywhere the last few years at market, and they are only getting MORE prominent, if that’s even possible.  It feels like every company was offering cane now, and we aren’t complaining! Here are some of our favorite examples, we especially love the natural cane…

So many awesome chairs with caning detail!!

I picked one element in the above rooms that I adore,  but they can be big ticket items.

So on that note ... here are my top five most-adored accessories that you can add to any room that will make an impact, look fantastic and not cost a lot of money or time! 

Here we go...

#1 
Call me tra-zy!

West Elm trays are my go-to's because they're inexpensive and big. I like big trays and I can not lie, so if I want to add texture to a room I use the raffia version below.

When I need to add a pop of color it also comes in this great orange.

It's aint a party unless your wearing ...  a fabulous lampshade.

A quick way to update a room is to change out your lampshadesYou could add a large, plain drum shade like this.

Or why not get all funky and stuff and add one of these

Flowers, Branches and Greens ... oh my!

Live and fresh is best for your table.







But, if you don't feel like buying fresh every week they make great preserved boxwoods that you can buy.

These are little doo dads that are usually small in scale and just add interest and fun. They serve no real purpose but they add a little somethin-somethin to your table/ottoman/bookcase.

Coffee table books. These are my favorites...

Now that you have all of this stuff what are you supposed to do with it?

Well silly, if I told you that what would you need me for?:)


Until next time!

If you've been reading this blog since its inception, you know I have no problem with words. I am however totally speechless over the senseless tragedy that occurred in Boston. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims and their families and the far-reaching impact this tragedy has had over all of us who have been watching this unbearable act unfold.
