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
Glamorous Desk Sets
Equestrian: Brass, buckles, leather, plaid
Another prominent trend at market was Equestrian, which played out with brass buckles, nailheads, plaid and leather. These were some standouts.
TRIMSPOTTING: product + people
Marge Carson‘s ball chain fringe fabrications were a feat of luxury.
Fret Skirt Banding at CR Laine for Tobi Fairley
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!
