My annual trip to the Atlanta Gift Market allows me freedom to explore the newest trends.  Antiques, seminars, high design, home style, fine linens and bedding, lighting, rugs, jewelry and clothing are some of the showrooms I visited.  Yes, the last two items also tell what is going on with home furnishings.  Colors and pattern are true to both.  For a long time, we saw modern paving the way to design, but this market introduces traditional as if it were new.
