High Point Market is a stressful one, indeed! Hundreds of off site vendors...hundreds of mini shuttles to catch (if you can!)...thousands of shoppers, mostly stylish ones from the design trade. Elevator lines. Lunch lines. Lunch, what's that?! Tired feet, of course. Thousands of options. Some great! Some horrid.
There is always a new color trend that emerges (sometimes an old one for us!) Many years, the newest trend is one that we have embraced several years prior. This year, we are seeing loads of bold graphic color! Deeper color, less muted. Modernism everywhere. About half way through the day, I realized that I had not taken any photos to share of likes and dislikes. Oh, dear! So, I took advantage of several showrooms to give you a taste of what new color trends are out there . Hm mmmm, might be time to repaint the retail store! Where's my magic wand?
Cutest ever gray and citron urban print! I have this in mind for one of my clients!
...Not so sure about this one! I think it's a bit too cartoon-y?
This one didn't photograph too well, but it's chartreuse. And, by the way, chartreuse is ALL over the market!
Yet another cool graphic,hip print. So happy!
Again, this one didn't photograph well. But it is also a yellow-y chartreuse! Darling fabric and oh, so comfy! I have this in mind for a four square of chairs for one of my projects as well. So cool.
This coral-y orange chair was a show stopper too. Like I said, a lot of color.
Cutest office chair ever! (It could make the late night blogging down right attractive!)
This teal blue, intense color is the biggest trend of the color projections that we have seen so far. There was not a showroom that we went in that didn't have something to offer in this color. Rugs, accessories, fabrics, chairs, sofas, pillows, you name it. Oh yes, and walls!
A few fabric selections of the teal persuasion.
...chair in said fabric. Way cute!
Stripes incorporating teal, soft chartreuse and grays...so pleasing.
Another stripe fabric focusing on teal and gray.
Yes, a fabulously rich leather chair...teal, of course!
A more subtle stripe in teal, chocolate/vicuna and gray. Check out the pillow!
