Sarasota interior designers Jeff and Joyce Hart recently traveled to High Point, North Carolina, to scout the High Point Spring Market—the largest home furnishings trade show in the world. Here are Jeff’s observations:

 

“The market was predominantly contemporary based on midcentury designs. The return of the open bookcase and room divider was big. Asian influence was and always will be a part of that. Woods were teak, walnut and ebony; everything else is painted. And, yes, brass. Here we go again.”

“New neutrals are set in darker surroundings. Only one pop of color, and it is an accessory.”

“The first room is very much what we saw all over the market.  White, off white and pale pearl gray with soft, lovely pale blue. The second room is a sharp acid green. Again all over the market, usually in smaller doses.”
