Now Trending at High Point Market: Opposites Definitely Attract

We're seeing color at opposite sides of the spectrum, with the softer side and the luxe side leading the way. Take a look at what you'll be seeing in stores spring/summer 2017.

High Point Market is the largest home furnishings industry trade show in the world, bringing more than 75,000 people to High Point, N.C. twice each year. After attending the fall market in October, my new mantra is "Opposites Did Attract" with metallic and pastel style influences leading the way in textile, furniture and home decor showrooms. Noting that both of these trends are on opposite sides of the decorating spectrum, it was interesting to see such a deep product assortment in both of these styles.

Let's start with my favorite metallic finds.

Metallic Moments

With texture being a leading trend throughout the home market, this oversized decorative vessel is truly a "triple threat" with texture, metallic and vibrant style from Prima Design Source.

I fell madly in love with these metallic floral appliques from Pyar & Co. They specialize in updated trims that are inspired by the craftsmanship of India, transforming elements of age-old art into today’s more modern lifestyle.

Everyone can use an extra hand around the house, and these brass accents from Noir are hands-down a fun way to accessorize any space. We give them an "a-OK" and "thumbs up" for humor and style.

Pastel Passion

With opposites attracting at High Point Market, we're seeing an increase in pastel decor with a fresh perspective and relaxed vibe in the home. Try pairing these updated products with white or gray for a soft color alternative.

This modern light fixture at Codarus with its semi-gloss finish is a millennial must-have, adding luster and fun color to any space.

These pastel pendents at Viz Glass will give any space a pretty pop of soft color in tonal shades of blueberry, banana and peach. Mixing glass textures on these globe pendents defines a new sense of style with a more handcrafted feel.

Mr. Brown is known for their English informality and modern style. They combine unexpected color with more traditional pieces, like this sea glass blue table lamp with textural rings rotating around its base.
