Fashioning Furnishings – Who is Raising the Style Bar

I had the pleasure of presenting Fashioning Furnishings, my HPMKT picks, to the Soft Design Lab VIP Market Group on opening night of High Point Market Fall 2015.  As I traveled through the showrooms the rest of the week, my content expanded with more inspiration,  so I updated my presentation. Are YOU or you favorite company in the mix?  Watch and see!

I am sure you saw some trends emerge: EQUESTRIAN, GLAM DESKS, ACRYLIC LEGS, STREET CRED, CHINOISERIE, PATTERN PLAY, ANIMAL PRINTS, TECHNO JEWEL TONES.  Let’s linger on a few.

HIGHLIGHTS OCT 2015

The big FASHION news this market was Kate Spade launching at EJ Victor and Cynthia Rowley at Hooker Furniture.  Both showed GLAMOROUS DESK SETTINGS which was a trend that continued throughout market.

Time for TASSELS

Were you #trimspotted?

In case you missed the Antiques by ZAAR grand re-opening and my co-DJ debut with Jason Nixon, we are definitely going to make it an annual market event.  Having an 80’s/Funk/Disco dance party was apparently just the ticket to recharge our market batteries!

Until next time, keep embellishing, #trimspotting and sharing your creativity!
