This year's High Point Furniture Market was bursting with bold colors and eye-catching patterns that add a touch of excitement and energy to any space. From rich jewel tones to playful geometric prints, designers are embracing color and pattern in a big way. Particulary popular in nearly all showrooms was the color green which ranged from light pastel to dark hunter green.
Curved Lines and Organic Shapes
The trend towards curved lines and organic shapes is a continuation of the move towards more natural and relaxed design elements. Designers are creating furniture with soft, curved edges that provide a sense of comfort and relaxation. This trend is particularly popular in sofas, chairs, and tables. The curved shapes bring a cozy, warm vibe to living spaces. The pandemic has created a desire for restorative spaces where relaxation is encouraged especially driven by the work from home movement.
Coastal & Cottage Decor
