Last week I got back from High Point Market in High Point, North Carolina. I found so many treasures and new lines I didn’t know about. There seemed to be a variety of trends that flowed from one showroom to the next. Some I loved, some were over done and some that I just didn’t get. The first showroom I went in was the Noir showroom and it did not disappoint. The first thing I saw on the shelves were gold skulls. If you know me, you know I had a huge smile on my face. I have been ordering from Noir for years but never have they done anything this bold. It was the showrooms who chose to push the boundaries a bit and do something new that I really enjoyed.
My only disappointment at market may shock a lot of people. The overuse of color and patterns. I am not afraid of color but too much color can be confusing at times. There are a few showrooms in general who I always thought were so beautiful because of their subtle way to be able to transition from room to room without you really noticing as you walked through. I was so excited to show my husband those particular showrooms. As soon as we walked through the front door we were hit in the face with color. And lots of it. I didn’t even know where to focus. We quickly did the run around and got out as fast as possible. Those high end showrooms I used to love transformed themselves into a department store, and not a good one. I did manage to get one good picture, of a tan ottoman of course.
