After the cancellation of spring High Point Market, the highly anticipated event is back in action from Oct. 13-21 with safety precautions in place. We’re all eager to get back to (almost) normal, and the Fall 2020 High Point Market will offer the much-needed chance to check out brand new products in person. After visiting Premarket and getting a look at new introductions, we’ve spotted five trends you can expect to see plus some new pieces you’ll find at Market.

 

1. Outdoor Furniture

As everyone spends more time at home, it’s no wonder there’s a renewed interest in creating the ideal outdoor space. Those looking to enjoy the outdoors and safely socialize outside are opting for cozy, updated furniture. While colder months are ahead, many are still revamping their patios and backyards for the fall and winter with new furniture and warming elements like fireplaces and torches.

 

2. Natural Materials

Inspired by Swiss-French architects Le Corbusier and Pierre Jeanneret, the Flora dining chair from Four Hands features black-finished solid oak framing with woven cane seating, for a texture-driven look with Mid-Century vibes.
With its timeless and natural feel, the Murphy chest from Forty West Designs is perfectly designed to complement any decor. The warm yet light wood and linen-like fabric on the face of the drawers can add just the right amount of texture to bedrooms, offices and other spaces. Showplace 2300.

We could all use some grounding elements these days, and natural materials are bringing just that to people’s homes. Woven rattan and caning details were popular at last fall’s High Point Market, and continue to trend this year on everything from casegoods to lighting. Woven pieces pair well with natural textiles and pale wood finishes for a relaxed, organic feel.

 

3. Curved Lines

Curved lines, rounded edges and organic shapes are bringing a softer vibe to interiors. While this trend ranges from furniture pieces to sculptural decor, it’s especially popular on sofas and chairs to create an inviting seating arrangement.

 

4. Bold Color and Pattern

Hooked of 100 percent wool by skilled artisans in India, the Padma Collection from Loloi features a natural thick pile. Through bold color combinations and asymmetrical designs, Padma takes the familiar wool hook construction and gives it a fresh spin.

Maximalism is here to stay, and that means design clients aren’t shying away from vibrant colors and eye-catching patterns that bring life to their homes. On wallpaper, wall art and rugs, bold floral patterns like the one above add a pop of interest to a room without overwhelming the space.

 

5. Home Office Furniture

Many are working from home more than they ever have before, driving the need for functional and comfortable home office spaces. While some have been making do working at living room tables and old desks that don’t quite cut it, others are finally taking the step to buy some new furniture and create a dedicated space for work. New desks, chairs and accessories can create stylish and personalized remote work set-ups for our new normal.
