2016 High Point Market, Reported by Tom Vriesman, Design Studio Vriesman
Twice yearly, the North American design world descends on High Point, North Carolina to witness the introduction of the latest furnishings, textiles and decorative accessories that will transform homes across the nation. Designers, retail buyers, the press and students all clamor to see what will be the tools with which they ply their trade in the coming months. This past fall, gem tones, the romance of Havana, Cuba and the mixing of metals became the overriding trends that will influence home decor in 2017.
1. Gem Tones
The influence of nature is seen in shades of leaf, grass and emerald green.
2. Mixed Metals
While yellow metals like brass, gold and bronze continue to intrigue, their combination with quartz crystal, marble and black add new drama. Lighting fixtures especially radiate the glow of these natural materials.
3. Old Havana
The newly accessible, romantic heritage of Cuba’s capital city is reflected in the flora and fauna of tropical prints. Mid-century styling feels new again with the contrast of vibrant island style.
