Notes from Pam & Brent:

At the Fall 2013 High Point Furniture Market there was a lot to see, and one of the best shows we’ve seen in awhile, due to the wide range of looks that were on display. A focus on individual style, rather than a cookie cutter approach, was so refreshing.


Some trends do continue from past seasons: Large dramatic pieces of scrubbed wood with an old world feeling continue to be shown.  Paired with accessories that, while oversize in scale,  often add a touch of humor or whimsy that holds stuffiness at bay




In contrast, color was everywhere.  While malachite green and cobalt blue are big trends this  season,  there was hardly a shade in the pantone deck that wasn’t represented… lacquered finishes in bright clear tones were everywhere.



We were very happy to see the return of sophisticated but smaller scale furnishings as well.


Chinoiserie with a modern edge in accessories and small case pieces looked fresh and wonderful, as well as the large ginger jars and Asian-inspired ceramics that we saw in showroom after showroom.


All in all, this Market reaffirmed that the furniture and design industry is alive and thriving.
