Bold Design at Market

The atmosphere at this year's High Point Furniture Market was uplifting and positive. The market was filled with buzz and excitement over the interesting use of colors and patterns. Browns and neutrals were happily replaced with bold blues and metallic grays along with playful textures. Designers reacted to the uncertain economy by emphasizing selective, simple, detailed, and quality built pieces. Retailers also turned up their creative juices and re-vamped showrooms to promote their unique style and get consumers interested.

One such designer and showroom that stood out to me was Julian Chichester. Dramatic pieces paired with pops of color created a refreshing look. This market definitely captured my glam side and I look forward to exploring more with you this week!
