Four days full of the industries best in home furnishings, lighting, textiles, and accessories is sure to make even the most discerning designer completely overwhelmed. Some of the most prominent and stylized new trends were found in home accessories and their finishes…there was a huge push back to brass, gold leaf, highly polished gold and a distinct juxtapose of industrial finishes. This trend was further cohesively transitioned into lighting and furniture collections. One of our favorite showrooms was the industrial yet chic and glam collection by Regina Andrew. We loved the washed woods, tessellated bone, shell, linen, and polished metal accents. To us this line best reflected the most sophisticated and eclectic trends from market… Attention was carefully paid to each texture, finish, color and design. We could not get enough of their new tessellated bone and mother of pearl trays adorned with fabulous over sized metal handles.
Traveling through the many buildings and distinct showrooms we couldn’t help but notice a trend in lavish jewel toned upholstery. From the beautiful silk velvets of the Lillian August collection to a more urban sophistication found in Bungalow 5’s stunning blue lacquered case-good collection. We found a robust palette of royal blue, purple, emerald, cranberry and charcoal gray that would make even the most vanilla design look twice.
We fell in love with the always trendsetting and glamorous showroom of OLY – Our favorite look was a classic and sophisticated bedroom vignette featuring a canopy bed with the most divine white lacquered and brutalist textured metal side tables. The walls in the showroom were painted in various shades of gray and boasted accents of animal prints, leather, metal and lucite.
We left market very much inspired by the new trends and styles set forth by the industries best. Until spring…..
