Each season we gather trends from High Point Furniture Market- this year we were uplifted by a trend with staying power- one that we don’t see going anywhere anytime soon: bold geometric patterns. There is something energizing about the rhythm of these patterns. We saw this trend from walls, to floors to pillows, to upholstered furniture covered entirely in it Below, some images for you to drool over….
While our coolest market find this trip was the Lucy Smith Collection, here are 5 other Market favorites from our trip to High Point!
1- Mid Century Modern Recliner from Thayer Coggin
We love how this chair is an undercover recliner, rather than screaming aloud “Watch Football here!” With it’s hidden reclining mechanism and foot rest, it provides sleek comfort. Something Don Draper might come home and have a cocktail in. It’s Mid Century Modern aesthetic is something available from Thayer Coggin.
2- Serge Ottoman from Hickory Chair
With it’s angular hourglass figure, the Serge is a made to measure ottoman whose presence in a room is sure to make you smile.
3- Chin Hua Collection from Century Furniture– the whole thing. From the gorgeous Zircote veneers, to the malachite and Sapphire finishes, to the bold shapes of the bar cabinet, we loved Century’s re-imagined Asian collection.
4- Walnut Counter Stools from Nuevo
Simple & Beautiful. We see these in a modern kitchen, paired with stainless steel…
5- Golden Feathers piece from Natural Curiosities–
I fell in love with how unique these pieces and love that gold as a metallic was a theme throughout Natural Curiosities collection.

Isn’t this bed to die for?! I love it.
The Bolier & Co. showroom was so lush – the repetition with the draperies and lights made an incredible statement.
Leave it to Swaim to show us some stunning and unique furniture pieces. The table (above) is so cool with the metal base and wood top.

On to trend #4 – Every showroom we went into had the coolest chairs with new shapes and details. Above, the bottom right photograph, shows our rep Kristin holding an original picture of a chair that was re-introduced this year as a part of Hickory Chair’s new line called 1911 collection. This collection commerates 100 years of excellence in the furniture design business. How neat!

I love the shape of this yellow chair below. Don’t you?
We are all about a good recliner – below American Leather showed three different sizes of one recliner. One for baby bear, one for mamma bear and one for pappa bear.
Tomorrow we will finish the High Point trends with the continuation of warm grays and also show you the mixed media compositions we found, so stay tuned!

Everywhere we turned there were pops of color at High Point Furniture Market. Here are a few of the highlights – blues, green, coral yellow, and orange. There is more colors to come on Thursday as we showcase all the different chair shapes.
Don’t you just love the Osborne & Littleflocked silhouette wallpaper?
This red ottoman from Lee Industries is popular among the DLL staff – because the ottoman is actually fabricated in a one-of-a-kind rug!
Yellow is so cheerful!
We were especially drawn to the peacock blue featured in the vignette at Hickory Chair.

Sometimes elegance can be found in a reflection, which is why we chose mirrors for our second trend this season at High Point Furniture Market. We saw so many shapes and sizes mounted on the wall or casually leaning on the floor – mirrors can totally change an entire space.
So come back tomorrow as we take you through a color adventure for trend #3.

Twice a year the Design Lines team piles into a car with a tablet and pen in one hand and a camera in the other in search for the latest trends, furniture styles, and new industry products at High Point Furniture Market. This Spring season we were overwhelmed with wonderful finds – including this new trend of block printed cotton and linen fabrics.
Debuting this season within the Suzanne Kesler Collection for Hickory Chair is this block pattern above, I love the pop of orange!
These lightweight fabrics seemed to be everywhere from textiles and bedding to entire sofas.
Pile on these fabrics for an effortless aesthetic. Don’t you just love that bed above? Nap please!
(Above & Below) More block prints from the Lee Industries Showroom. Wouldn’t any of these chairs go great in a sun-room or family den?
Can’t forget about the accessories – blocked printed linens and even outdoor pillows.
Tomorrow we’ll bring you our next trend that we saw – mirrors galore so stay tuned!
