This time of year, we normally write about our experience at the Spring Market in High Point, North Carolina. We want to share with you what we saw and the important trends of 2015.

After perusing many vendors old and new, we saw a number of trending styles and design ideas that we feel will stand the test of time.  Our top Fabulous Finds at Market are as follows:

#1. Gold.  Gold is coming back strong in both finishes and fabric.  In each showroom, there was plenty of gold found in lighting, accents, and accessories.  While brassy gold is making a comeback, our favorite gold came in more patina finishes featuring blended colors of silver and gold.

#2. Stackable Furniture.  We saw lots of curios and bookcases with interchangeable pieces.  We liked both the look and the versatility this trend offers.  Many of the pieces we saw can be used for dual purposes.  We think this trend will appeal to the changing needs of our clients.

#3. Carrara and white marble.  We saw marble tops on painted finishes and stained pieces of furniture.  Many of the pieces were made completely out of Italian marble and we found ourselves unable to resist touching these gorgeous pieces.  It was easy to envision them in many of the homes of our clients.

#4. Colorful fabrics!  We saw a rainbow of fabrics we couldn’t resist.  It’s easy to see why neutral sofas with colorful accent pillows and coordinating accessories with a pop of color are still popular.  We brought back arm loads of eye candy…tempting pillows in scrumptious, high design fabrics.

#5 Artwork.  One of the most important things we purchase during market is art.  We scour exhibitors to select quality artwork you won’t see other places.  We place the art in the homes of our clients as needed.  The art we selected this year is transitional and contemporary, and sure to look stunning when it finds the perfect home.

The fruits of our labor will be arriving in our retail store and design center soon.  Please feel free to visit us to see our fabulous finds in person.  Although we’ve been attending market for many years, we aim to stay on our toes and let nothing slip by.  Our goal is providing our clients with the most beautiful homes possible.  The photos featured here are just a few of the items we saw this spring.
