High Point Market: Trending

High Point Market happened this past week and we got to see so many beautiful designs that we wanted to share! The MBI team went to market this past spring, so we enjoyed market virtually this season! It's where all the designers around the country get together to look at new products on the market and see what's trending. It's a great opportunity to sit on the products and see the designs in person! Especially when you have that special project you're working on, it's a great time to find those unique pieces. Here's what we gathered!


Boucle is still present in the design world! It's been reinterpreted into a more compact, flat texture versus coarse and nubby. We love this sophisticated version of a low-profile sofa. The seamless edges wrapped fully in the fabric is so exquisite and beautiful! This sofa was designed with a moody space in mind- white furniture with deeper-toned rugs and walls is such a cool combo!

Another major texture trend we saw at market is METAL! Furniture fully made of metal or designed in a metallic finish is both contemporary and traditional in nature. I love the blended ambiance that traditional furniture in a contemporary space brings. Unexpected, polished, and refined is always the goal in our projects.


This console table is on our wishlist! Wouldn't this be beautiful in a moody entryway?


Impactful color has splashed our walls for the past few years in a dramatic way. Deeper hues are becoming more popular with a preppy flavor. Blue and brown are making a comeback and we aren't upset about it! Shades of steel paired with clean and polished furniture is such a pretty combo. We also love this color with natural stained furniture and metal accents. Chocolate brown is on our trend report too. We're seeing this color specifically on the walls!


Airy spaces are IN! This version feels very editorial and reinvented. Clean lines, elegant furniture profiles, subtle patterns or textures, and a punch of color are the ingredients to replicate a room like the one below. Don't be fearful of feminine tones- mauve and rose are beautiful colors to try this trend with!

This look is also really pretty in monochromatic tones. Camels and natural finishes paired with oatmeal and creamy textures are a beautiful way to create layers and cohesion. I love the look of the geometric rug with textured upholstered chairs! The little touch of contrast in the chair legs is the perfect amount!
