  1. 1. Homeowners are splurging on statement pieces to elevate their home style. Neutrals are trending in the home as homeowners look to their walls and floors as the “canvas” to their unique style. A muted backdrop paves the way for designers to pull in gorgeous statement pieces – whether it’s an eye-catching fixture or rich piece of artwork – and create a statement through the careful placement of distinct home accessories.

 

  1. 2. Lighting continues to be the jewelry of the home. It was evident that lighting is, more often than not, the crowning glory of a space. Lighting has the ability to completely transform the look and feel of your home. Artistic elements – such as handcrafted finishes and natural materials – were pervasive in lighting designs at this year’s market. Matte metals are also increasingly popular in lighting and home appliances.

 

  1. 3. Craftsman and quality metals are showing up in all areas. The use of metals – from polished chrome to brushed nickel to muted gold – is proving to be one of the top trending looks for furniture and accessory design.

  1. 4. Bold color and pattern guarantee visual appeal in today’s interiors. Bright pops of color decked the walls, pillows and artwork of many showrooms at High Point. A bohemian, tribal look showed up in many areas – while inviting floral patterns dominated others. Either way, color is in!
