Keeping our finger on the pulse of what’s of the moment, VP+C scoped out High Point Market to peep the latest and greatest in furniture, fabrics and décor. Welcome to our round up of key highlights and trends:



A clear link across multiple showrooms were chain, chain, chains! From floor to ceiling glass chandeliers to outdoor furniture to wooden wall décor, this jewelry-inspired look is making a statement.

Palecek (l.), Global Views (r.)


Another prevailing theme that lasso’d us in were furniture pieces made in, you guessed it, rope! From dressers to coffee tables to full blown sofas, these pieces can tie any space together – indoors and out.
Currey & Co (l.), Jo-Liza International Corp (r.)
JANUS et Cie – Believe it or not, everything on this beautifully woven couch is made to withstand the elements!

Fluid lines were another favorite, this streamlined look was seen in seating across a variety of materials including wood, leather and velvet.

NOT-SO-HIDDEN GEMS… Another crystal clear trend – luminous stones fabricated into just about every type of décor you can dream of. We loved these quartz chandeliers from Visual Comfort and Currey & Co. Tritter Feefer serves up stunning Selenite decor and tables.


SITTING PRETTY … Spotted throughout the show were stylish stools and side tables. We fancied these:

Pekota, a Canadian furniture manufacturer specializing in the industrial aesthetic, is one of the first to offer mass customization for furniture. Select custom colors and details you desire for these stools, and they can be produced for you in a jiff. Think NikeID, but for seating.


Loloi launches a collection with star power teaming up with HGTV’s Joanna Gaines from Fixer Upper, for a new and eclectic rug collection.


South Shore gets tech-y and uses virtual reality to showcase a new upcoming collection, allowing you to transport yourself into a home featuring the new designs. Pictures don’t do this experience justice, but just imagine the full effect feeling like you’re inside the screen.
