, Trend Spotting: High Point Market Review


High Point Market, also known as the “World Furniture Market,” is a ten day event that showcases the latest and greatest from top furniture manufacturers across North America. As a designer, High Point always brings plenty of inspiration for upcoming projects and offers the perfect opportunity to scout out new products for Grafus Studio as well!

This year has been all about luxurious textures and finishes, improved performance and functionality and of course, bold color! Marble and stone finishes, both real and imitation, add a luxurious look to everything from backsplashes to dinnerware. Gold continues to be the finish of choice for glamorous, sophisticated spaces and this year, we’re seeing a lot of combined gold finishes, mixing a variety of gold shades from rose gold to soft golds for a more dynamic look.

Luxurious fabrics like velvet are also a popular choice, adding a classic touch to upholstery and accessories with high performance fabric options expanding to allow more options even for the toughest situations. Other hot trends at this year’s High Point Market included the use of the color green in various shades and the use of bench seating rather than chairs.
