Providing lighting designers and retailers with the “aha” moment, when they can actually see the effects of lighting in person, is what the showrooms at High Point Market are all about. Attendees at this year’s Spring show will have many opportunities to explore some of the newest trends in lighting, including creative implementation of a range of new materials, geometrics and structures.

At the April 22-26 show, there will be unparalleled opportunities for attendees to explore the latest trendsetting lighting products. The Spring 2023 High Point Market will present more than 1,000 permanent showrooms and temporary exhibits and feature dynamic new lighting resources, including: 

  • Accord Lighting will feature its Horizon collection of lighting pendants manufactured with elements intrinsic to the local landscape. Shaped with two rings in multilaminate wood, the lights house LED strips that create lighting softened by a milky acrylic.
  • Crystorama will unveil a range of new collections and line extensions that span a variety of applications and styles. Highlights from their 2023 collections will include indoor, outdoor and bath lighting fixtures with clean open designs, natural materials, pleated shades, large domes and mid-century modern styling. 
  • Currey & Co. will be introducing nearly 100 new fixed-wire pieces, including chandeliers, pendants, flush and semi-flush fixtures, and wall sconces. New fixed-wire pieces will include Phebe large and medium chandeliers, the Senjyo tilted orb chandelier by Hiroshi Koshitaka, and Dandelion chandelier and pendants. Daily in-showroom events will include a Bonsai Tour with Brownlee Currey, president of Currey & Company and longtime bonsai enthusiast.
  • Finesse Décor plans to showcase many of the company’s table and floor lamps that now function seamlessly through a wall dimmer powered by the Alexa app. 
  • Hinkley Lighting will be showcasing its Agave line of pendants featuring hand-sculpted leafy layers inspired by the agave plant. The company will also display its Porter line of statement lanterns, whose designs feature a fusion of modern farmhouse and industrial arts and crafts.
  • Hubbardton Forge will showcase its new Riza collection of pendants, which feature a stunning display of structural elements handmade by Vermont artisans. Also on display will be the Gatsby Collection of customizable pendants that reflect a striking blend of art deco and contemporary design. Hubbardton Forge is also debuting a new piece, the  Floret, that will be premiering at High Point. It is the company’s first collaboration with Lexington Glassworks, the Asheville, NC-based studio who exclusively created the glass for the fixture.
  • Hudson Valley Lighting will be providing demonstrations of many of its newest collections of pendants and wall sconces, including Clivedon, Osterley, Highgrove, Somerset, Chasleton, Rousham and Chiswick.
  • Varaluz will be showcasing more than 100 new lighting fixtures, accessories, portable lighting, wall art and décor pieces. New products that will be featured include the Varaluz Casa home décor line of Varaluz lighting, as well as bold new lighting collections that draw from familiar styles of the past reimagined in an aesthetic that Varaluz founder Ron Henderson refers to as mod familiar. As part of the company’s new Smithsonian Illuminated collection, Varaluz will also be introducing two new aeronautically inspired heritage modern lines of chandeliers and pendants.
