I’m thrilled to have once again attended the High Point Market, the largest home furnishings industry trade show in the world, located in High Point, North Carolina. It’s really incredible how trends manage to make their way across categories that are seemingly diverse, like fashion and home décor, but in reality have a lot more in common than they do different! Be it the era that inspiration is derived from, the color, the fabrication, or even overall motif or exotic locale, it’s easier than ever to find parallels between the two, making wearing and living with corresponding concepts quite effortless. Below I’ve listed four trends spotted at the High Point Market that have some evident fashion tie-ins.
A thin layer of gold provides a gilt look, which was the most common metal hue found on a variety of pieces at the market, ranging from framing to sconces, bar carts and coffee tables alike. From a fashion perspective, the fine, minimalist delicate gold jewelry trend is 100% on par with the Gilded Age aesthetic.
