Story Highlights
High Point Market Colors and Keywords
I had a wonderful week here with fellow blogger friends and the Design Bloggers Tour at High Point Market. Being part of a community is what made this market so wonderful for me.  Many of you have been following along on my Instagram feed as I share interesting products and vendors seen this year from the Market.  
Now, for me, there is no such thing as "Trends"  or the "Current Color" when selecting items for your home.  I want you to choose furniture, fabrics, and objects that you like and as your designer, I help you organize and prioritize to make the best choices and get it to all flow and work together into a home that you will love living in.  

At the market, we did notice there were a few common themes in color and material selections and new directions due to consumer interests, combined with product advancements. 

Here is a guide to some of the themes and new introductions from our tour.......
Interior design by Michael Berman, dimple tables by Theodore Alexander photo by Michael Garland. 
Theodore Alexander: Michael Berman delights us with his impassioned approach. He is an artist, having designed everything from wallpaper with Fromenthal to furniture with TA, Michael Berman does it again, and again, this time creating a beautifully crafted and detailed line of furniture for your home. 
Theodore Alexander: Jamie Drake showcases his latest introductions.

Lovely colors, performance fabrics in soft textures, this was a delightful brand to furnish your home in every corner and palate. I'm in love with everything.

Chris Dunker: Phylum House aka Dunker Imaging

Chris Dunker: Phylum House. Engage, Enrich, Inspire.  Creating Visual Solutions

This is the perfect tagline for this company.  Chris presents as a scientist, an intellectual creator and inquisitive person in nature.  I can definitely envision that he and Michael Berman are good friends.  This artist enchanted us with the wide variety of artistic creations and a rooted intellectual thought process that is driving the choices in his diverse art creations in video, photography, and fine prints.  His business model is appealing to designers and developers alike.  While he creates many unique pieces on commission for Hotels and Resorts,  he also offers a wide variety of sophisticated home decor and fine art choices for every client with distinct results.

Duralee High Point Market 2017

Duralee at High Point Market 

Duralee introduces a new fabric collaboration with Lonni Paul. 

I especially loved meeting Lonni Paul as she presented her new line and showcased it on upholstered furniture displayed within the Duralee booth.  Soft to the hand and delightful in its color combinations of Blush, WHITE, and warm Beiges.  This was in contrast to the blush and grey combinations seen in other showrooms. I inspired by the use of color on the walls in an Ombre finish, dark on the bottom fading to light on the top.  I need to apply this technique to my hallways at home.

This is a High Point Market product preview with the fabrics available in January 2018.

New fabric design, and notice the Ombre wall finish. 

Colors of Duralee High Point Market 2017
Duralee: High Point Presentation: This market, Duralee unveiled a beautiful fabric line by Los Angeles interior designer Lonni Paul in conjunction with Crypton Residential Performance Fabrics!  This fresh new fabric line was light in color and soft in texture, but heavy in performance. Perfect for an elegant interior setting, yet durable for a family room.  This line presents in light colors of WHITE, ivory, blush, lavender, and baby blue.  This fabric is as functional as it is beautiful. 

To the Trade
Universal Furniture: credenza love and mirror facination.

Universal: Zephyr Table This little lovely ships in 14 days!! (want)

Universal: Marble insert on the bedside table is brilliant.

ORGANIZATION Storage solutions presented for the bedroom collection Serendipity that is brilliant with the adult version of furniture adapted for youth in their "SmartStuff" collection 

Universal: Serendipity line
Universal:  This dresser has a pocket mirror that pulls out from behind. on one side, and on the other side is additional jewelry storage with a pop-up mirror on top for added functionality. 

  Saving the best for the last. We were given a sneak peek 
of a variety of new lines with Universal Furniture.  Each product was based on good design bones yet celebrates styling and has an enduring appeal. We were presented with one vinyet and another of on-trend and classic furnishings that were practical and fresh.  The conversation was good design, with a great price point and available within days!  Universal is working hard with the launch of their new ordering website to offer you, the trade/ the designer a seamless access, great pricing and quick delivery on a wide range of furniture.  To access the IStore, contact your local representative or email tothetrade@UniversalFurniture.com .
