High Point Design Trends – 2012
Recent tours of the October High Point Furniture Market have paved the way for a variety of interesting, and awe-inspiring 2012/2013 Design Trends. Here are just a few of the exciting new styles that will eventually be making their way into your home!
MAKE IT MINE! Uniqueness and personalization of design have never been more popular or trendy. Today’s homeowners yearn for room decorations that speak to them – not their neighbors or friends. From custom designed window treatments to upholstered headboards, homeowners are choosing fabrics and furniture styles that inspire them and them alone!
METAL REFLECTION! Beautifully designed and crafted mirrors continue to set the “reflective” stage in any room. And when you add even more reflection in your room by adding a variety of metals – chrome lamp bases, silver shades, pewter picture frames, brass and gold accessories, the rooms of tomorrow come alive with light and excitement.
COLORS…Gray, navy, and green abound, as do nature’s neutrals. Then add a smattering of pop colors – hot pinks, cheerful tangerine, regal purples, and cheerful yellows, and you have all the color ingredients necessary to create a room design that appeals to YOU!
IT’S THAT 70’S SHOW! We seem to be in the midst of a modern revival, ala the 70’s! Clean furniture lines – tufted leather – glass and chrome furniture – the cleaner the line, the better! Retro looks have never been easier, or more fun to create!
THINK: DESIGN JEWELRY! With the overall desire to “make it mine”, adding details to furniture and window treatments, is hot! Hot!! Hot!!! Think nail head trims on furniture; think crystal jewels on tufted headboards and benches; think top stitching on upholstered furniture cushions. What a great way to personalize your style!
