We’re back from the fall 2019 High Point Market and our editors were all over town scoping out the latest trends in new and best-selling products. Below are eight trends we spotted across all home categories — some are new and some are old favorites found in new places.

We've created a gallery with even more examples of these trends, so be sure to check that out as well. 


1. Warm colors and patterns

Jewel tones are still around this season, but we're seeing them all — green, blue, yellow, pink and orange — in warmer hues. These colors combined with bold patterns — also trending — can help designers apply the layering techniques that we heard about throughout the week. 

2. Champagne upholstery

In addition to the warm jewel tones, we noticed champagne upholstery across furniture categories. Soft golden hues with a slight shimmer adorned upholstery in many of the showrooms we visited.

3. Cozy materials

Jaipur High Point Market
Jaipur Living displayed this new line of chunky textured rugs that resembled cozy sweaters.

Hygge is still hot. We saw boucle textiles and other soft textures adorn everything from sofas to rugs, creating a cozy feel.

4. Multi-faceted

Faceted giraffe accessories from UMA.

From tables and decorative accessories to lighting and even artwork, facets and faceted patterns are making a statement across categories.

5. Woven materials

Selamat High Point Market
This Pinnacle Award-winning cabinet from Selamat has caning inlaid among the floral pattern.

Natural materials are still around in a big way, and we’re seeing them displayed on furniture, lighting and decor in caned and woven fashions. 

6. Marble

Aidan Gray High Point Market
The Keaton Industries collection at Aidan Gray has lamp shades with marble patterns.

Speaking of natural materials, we saw an influx of marble and marble prints on surfaces including tabletops, mirrors and lamps. 

7. Animal prints

Animal print made a statement on this table lamp from Regina Andrew.

Animal print has been trending for a while, but we saw it in some unconventional places — on upholstery and pillows, but also lamps and rugs.

8. Sculptural shapes

Chaddock High Point Market
The cubist console table from Mary McDonald's new collection with Chaddock is the designer's favorite piece in the collection.

Sculptural shapes are adding visual interest to furniture, lighting and decorative accessories. Despite their neutral colors, their bold shapes make a statement.
