2017 Design Trends at High Point's Fall Market


For those of you who are lucky enough to be working with an Interior Designer, you are probably wondering where they went for about a week in the middle of November. Well, if they were missing there's a good chance they were in High Point, NC for the semi-annual furniture show. For those who have never been, it can be a bit hard to describe and for those that are there it can be just downright overwhelming.

High Point is a small town in rural North Carolina in the middle of the traditional furniture industry area of the US. As such it grew up as the town where buyers would come to see the latest and greatest in the furniture world. Although not a whole lot of manufacturing still occurs in the area it is still the undisputed market king. So twice a year designers, buyers, and sundry others make the pilgrimage to see the latest in decor style and spot the new trends.

So what are the trends that I spotted? I think there were three big ones:


Having that artisanal handmade look is important. Irregular, imperfect, and offbeat are all the hallmarks to look for.
