Color me inspired…


Those of us in the design and furnishings industries devotedly look forward to High Point Market twice each year. It is simply the best furniture market in the world. And this April 2017 Highpoint Market was no exception. We, in the industry are continually refreshed with new design inspiration and creativity, and leave the market as better interior designers and business owners.

High point makes the fashion to home connection. According to the fashion sages at Vogue magazine, 2017 trends in apparel will include “exaggerated lines, metallic effects and graphic prints.” High Point Market mirrored this year’s hottest looks from the runways.

Two themes define the new color season.

  • Cove, evoking the tranquility of coastal living

Warm espresso, sienna, and tawny brown create a sophisticated base for a duo of soft feminine corals. Dewey blues and misty grey subdue deep tones of midnight blue and charcoal while lending complexity to pale sandy hues. Light olive enriches understated neutrals, while periwinkle creates a moment of clean modern contrast.


  • Old Havana, a fusion of old and new worlds

Sun faded pinks and corals uplift deep shades of palm leaf green, teal, and tobacco leaf. Chili pepper red and golden yellow energize floral tones of orchid, bougainvillea, and lilac. Azure blue recalls the placid calm of the Caribbean Sea while chalky yellow and pale avocado conjure Old Havana’s retro sensibility.
