The bi-annual event held in High Point, North Carolina, is the largest home furnishings industry trade show in the world! Here are the top trends this season through the Style Spotters' eyes.
Contemporary Art Deco
Denise McGaha, having spent a decade honing her well-trained eye at Neiman Marcus, appears to feature Art Deco with a contemporary twist to define "home fashion" this season. Golds, glamour, extravagance, details, furs, and intricate prints are seen used against earthy neutrals such as wood to be reminded of the notion of sustainable living. The contemporary twist comes from geometric cut-out details throughout the pieces.
Interior design tastemaker of homes of Hollywood A-Listers, top executives of Silicon Valley, and Manhattan philanthropists, Michelle Workman knows what she's doing. With an apparent eye for antiques, she has selected pieces nothing short of luxurious. Handsome arm chairs and sofas are the highlight of her picks.
Traditional And Midcentury
Haskell Harris possesses an experienced eye for Southern design. Formerly an editor for Southern Living and Cottage Living, she applies her creativity towards all things Southern aesthetics. This season she seems to be hugely influenced by Midcentury glamour. Tassels and pop art influences are intertwined with organic textures to be reminded of everyday Southern living.
Nicole Gibbons is known for blending classic with modern and utilizing bold mixes of rich color, pattern, and texture in ways that excite. Indeed, in her pieces we have seen bold colors, metal hardware accents, and geometric shapes for an updated look.
Shay Geyer brings her Southern influences to the contemporary scene. She has a panache for infusing color, texture and patterns to give a room distinct flair. Her selections this season featured her current crush for major hardware, bold colors and geometrical prints.
