Spheres of influence
Lighting design ran in circles at the High Point Market. Chandeliers and lamps are rounded out with flair. This design trend quickly updates a space and adds a bit of shazam to even the most traditionally decorated rooms.
Textiles, case Goods and accents are imitating patterns that occur naturally in wood, water and rock. Malachite-inspired interior decor is the rage. Look for this interesting pattern in everything from tabletops to wine corks.
Graphic patterns continue to dominate the interiors market and can be found in floor coverings, furniture, drapery and more. Modern and bold, geometric lines are a staple in design that looks like it is here to stay.
Statement pieces that can transition between rooms with ease are must-haves. Sophisticated standards can mix with multiple styles and collections. Even amid the ultra-trendy items at market, these fashionable staples were standouts.
