Last month, our merchandising team made the trek just down the road to High Point Furniture Market in High Point, North Carolina. For those not familiar with this trade show, it is the largest furniture show in the world with over 11 million square feet of show space. Needless to say, we always have a ton of fun exploring the latest trends and bringing these stylish products back to our fabulous customers on Rosenberry Rooms! Here are some highlights and notable trends of our trip this fall.
We were able to visit with the fabulous Jane and Billy from Stray Dog Designs. Not ones to shy away from color, their booth was an explosion of cheerful hues and whimsical designs. We especially fell in love with the fun chicken inspired pieces!
We popped into the Ro Sham Beaux booth that was dripping in lovely glass beads and kaleidoscope-like colors. Those agate pendants and sconces are so dreamy! We were especially smitten with the miniature glass base lamps with itty bitty gold tassels. These would look so chic on a child’s nightstand (or parents, too!).
Surya was next up on the list and, as usual, was chock full of the most amazing rug designs. We were coveting this multi-colored chevron rug as well as the oh-so-romantic white floral rug. The ladybug rugs are pretty darned cute, too! Surya also has a fantastic selection of poppy accessories. Our favorites were the polka dot pillows, gilded chevron pillows, preppy hounds-tooth pillows, and beach-y striped poufs.
The artwork by Oliver and Mabel is one of our favorites, and we love the story behind the pieces. Named after the artist’s own adopted dog, he donates 7% of sales to help keep stray dogs healthy and cared for. I want the Peony artwork for my home!
Wrapping up our day, we saw a few new furniture collections. Drawing inspiration from vintage furniture and gray weathered finishes, these girls’ furniture collections are simply darling. We are suckers for an ultra girly room!
As I am sure you can see, the biggest theme from this market was color – and lots of it! From jewel tones to tropical hues, color was splashed all over furniture, lighting, decor, and artwork. Another trend that kept showing its furry little face around market? Foxes! On rugs, bedding, and accessories, these fun foxes would be perfect for a little gentleman’s nursery or modern boy’s room.
