It is a great atmosphere for sharing ideas with other individuals from all over the world who also share a passion for all things furniture, design and home!.

Here are 7 exciting home fashion trends we are looking forward to seeing at High Point this October.

1) The use of Acrylic
This gives a clean modern look. Acrylic is being used on everything! it can add an “airy” feel to any room and is great to use in small spaces because of its translucent qualities. It has the look of glass but is half the weight and more durable. On other articles, take a look at this blog about truck accident attorney in charlotte, NC.

2)  Geometric Shapes
Geometric shapes are being seen everywhere from wallpaper to flooring and everything inbetween. They definitely create visual interest to your interiors.  The hand carved details used in wood furniture are amazing. They take a clean lined furniture piece and transforms it into a modern work of art. Geometrics can be dominant ing so be careful when selecting how many pieces you use in room.

3) Greek Key Design
History returns in a big way with the classy greek pattern from the 20th century.  The design is often used in accents such as pillows, borders, dishes and furniture. We really loved the greek key design bernhardt included in their Soho Luxe collection. It presents well in small and large scale and It was refreshing to see it used in chrome.

4) Rose/Blush Color Pallet
The soft pastels and blush tones look so lustrous when paired with warm gold accents. This color trend brings a sophisticated and feminine touch to any living space.

5) A Touch of Asian
Traditional Chinoiserie paired with a subtle contemporary look, was evident in many different elements at market. It’s like transferring a pieces of art onto the furnishings. The detail is stunning  and imagery tells a story. This painted silver cabinet was a favorite. Hidden inside was an unexpected rich cobalt blue. very unique and modern.

6) Tufting Everywhere!
Tufting details have been used for many years in furniture design but mostly used on the inside backs of chairs and sofas. The newest revision has manufacturers adding the diamond tuft to the outside backs of sofas and chairs. Its adds visual interest especially if you are floating the sofas in a room.

7) Gold Trim
Gold accents are a lovely compliment to wood, upholstery, stone, and acrylic. It’s a nice subtle contrast that adds interest. We love the architectural of the z design of the chair and in the gold it really makes a statement.
