While attending a major event like High Point Market, it is so easy to get totally overwhelmed. There is just so much to absorb over just a few short and harried days. I finally had time to sift through (over 850) photos I took during Market and wanted to share a few more home decor highlights with you + some notes on why each moment felt important from a design perspective. Let’s get started, shall we? I suggest grabbing a coffee, cuz this is a long post with so much inspiration!
You know how I gravitate toward blues, right? A few favorites: Pom Pom At Home and Imagine Home. It was really awesome to see Pom Pom At Home in person and to touch all of the luxurious linen, textures, and embroideries. I’m already dreaming of a full bedding makeover… And Imagine Home was totally new to me! I was drawn into the showroom because of the gorgeous textiles, but I stayed because of the incredible conversation with the founder, Staci. Not only are the products gorgeous, but the brand is socially-conscious and seeks to bring “artisan craft from the developing world to the forefront of design.” The result is product that not only does good for the artisans, but also your home!
And meet my latest decor obsession, Consort. Inspired by the Paris Flea and designed by rock star designers Mat Sanders and Brandon Quattrone, this showroom felt like the ultimate breath of fresh air. I literally want every piece for my home and absolutely adore the design mentality: Relax, it’s just décor.
This dramatic and handsome moment from Nuevo Living also caught my eye. I love that it’s such an eclectic modern mix. That sofa color is so sexy, too.
For a more traditional, extremely romantic vibe, I fell in love with both Eloquence and Bernhardt. I know you hardly expect me to share anything overtly traditional, but hear me out! Both of these home decor brands mix and mingle traditional pieces with modern touches like textures, materials, and applications — meaning that this isn’t pure, straight up traditional. The whites are clean and fresh (instead of antiqued), the blacks are true and glossy, and the materials are almost always given a new twist.
And can I just say that showroom photography is so hard?? I apologize if any of these images feel a bit off to you, or even different from our usual aesthetic. It can be tough to photograph with so much overhead lighting, but hopefully these shots inspire you anyways.
Chairs will always be my true love, so these 3 from E.J. Victor / Kelly Wearstler, Crypton Home Fabric / René Cazares, and Bernhardt really spoke to me. I saw tons of that sherpa-esque material used for upholstery while at Market. It was so cozy and cuddly… definitely an interesting new texture to consider for the home. Metal accents on arm chairs was a huge trend as well. I love how different metal trims and give each chair a totally unique vibe.
I was also totally obsessed with this coffee table situation from E.J. Victor / Kelly Wearstler. I love that the upholstery allows you to kick up your feet while also offering a solid coffee table surface… and it can double as addition seating while you’re entertaining! Totally unique and awesome.
While in the Karastan Rugs / Mohawk Flooring showroom, I fell in love with a rug. Like, literally this rug has me rethinking our entire living room strategy! But the main selling point for me is that this rug is made with SmartStrand Silk Reserve, which essentially means that it’s life-proof while being silky soft and smooth. As someone with lots of pets, this technology is hugely appealing to me and I can’t wait to share even more about it with you guys in future posts!
Hands down, this brass detail from Adriana Hoyos was my favorite small element of the entire show. I never knew I’d love a tuft as much as I love this one!
And last, but not least, I learned so much from the team at Sunbrella / Glen Raven Custom Fabrics. I had no idea you could use their fabrics indoors, but the showroom (designed by local designer Brian Paquette) was so inspiring. I miiiight have even selected some fabrics for our sailboat makeover one day!
I hope this post inspires you as much as my trip to Market inspired me! And many, many thanks to the sponsors of this fantastic experience:
