With the Spring High Point Market coming up, the High Point Market Authority has let its 2015 Style Spotters loose to spy out key trends in home furnishings. The market, held in High Point, NC, runs from April 18 to 23.
Among the trends the designers and decorators identified in their role as Style Spotters, according to High Point, are some that are continuations from earlier markets, including the use of gold metallic and finishes, and some variations, such as the use of stone inlays.
Arianne Bellizaire, Inspired to Style: Subtle spaces done in black, white and gold color palettes.
Kati Curtis, Kati Curtis Design: Repetitive patterns as in the Mayan ruins, vibrant colors, craftsmanship as in hand-carved exotic wood looks, gold leaf and precious stone inlays.
Beth Dotolo, Pulp Design Studios: Various takes on the widely discussed Pantone 2015 color of the year, Marsala, including more interior friendly shades in blush and rose, as well as continued strength in copper, brass, and gold.
Lori Gilder, Interior Makeovers Inc.: More mid century modern influences with a twist, more rose gold and copper details integrated into case goods, seating and lighting.
Patti Johnson, Patti Johnson Interiors: Furnishings that help establish a domestic haven environment but that still can function with integrated workspace.
Courtney Lake, Monogram Décor: Art and accessories that are beautiful but have a purpose.
Jonathan Legate, Jonathan Legate Interior Consultation: Naturals/organics, metallics/luxury, tribal, looks, pure classics.
Leslie Hendrix-Wood, Hadley Court: Timeless designs, gracious living, family traditions.
