Exhibitors, showrooms, and events at the High Point Market showcased the latest styles in furniture, bedding, casual/outdoor, home décor, and gifts.
We’re excited to share the High Point Market trends that are on the rise and the ones that are on their way out.
Here are the top trends from High Point Spring Market 2023
The organic modern aesthetic is taking center stage in the world of interior design. This trend combines a modern evolution of textiles featuring warm color palettes and movement. Organic shapes and abstract motifs are also being featured by many of our favorite manufacturers.
Timeless and Vintage:
Vintage accessories and one-of-a-kind objects made of reclaimed wood and metal, clay, and lacquerware offer an eclectic layer to the modern style. Antique fabrics made into decorative pillows are the perfect way to use elaborate fabrics, especially fragments of antique needlework and hand-woven textiles creating layers of “lived in” feeling. Natural wood, such as oak and walnut, are also being used to create elegant and timeless pieces that can fit any design style.
The latest furniture collections are not just for beach houses. They have a sophistication and warmth that can find their way into homes of all kinds, from the mountains to the city. The coastal style embodies watery hues of green and blue pair perfectly with the bleached and natural oak finishes. Pale wood tones, like driftwood, sun-faded teak or even white-washed wood, are a perfect fit for coastal style’s weathered look.

Natural Looking Materials
Natural materials are a timeless choice for interior design, but the use of materials like rugs, natural wool, sisal, and jute rugs is on the rise. These materials add a soft touch to any space, making it feel more inviting and warm. They’re also eco-friendly, making them a popular choice for those who want to make their homes more sustainable. By incorporating natural materials into interior design, you can create a space that is not only beautiful but also has a positive impact on the environment.
The trend towards minimalism is still going strong. People are looking for clean, simple lines and a focus on function. The idea is to create a space that is uncluttered and easy to maintain. This trend is perfect for those who value a simplistic and organized way of life. Minimalism allows for a space to feel open and free, without the burden of unnecessary items. It’s the perfect choice for those who want to create a calm and serene space.
Authenticity of Materials
Authenticity of materials is becoming increasingly important in interior design. People are looking for materials that not only look great but also feel great. Leather and velvet are taking center stage as materials that not only add elegance but also bring comfort to any space. Materials such as linen, wool, and natural fibers like cotton and hemp are also gaining popularity. By choosing high-quality, authentic materials, you can create a space that is not only beautiful but also inviting.
Versatile materials have been trending in the home design industry. Rattans are used to create sophisticated pieces that are both stylish and functional. Rattan furniture is perfect for those who want to create a natural, tropical look in their homes and is a perfect choice for any room in the house, whether you’re looking to create a relaxing living room or a cozy bedroom. Bamboo is a sustainable and eco-friendly option that can be used to create beautiful furniture pieces. Metal and glass combinations are being used to create modern and edgy pieces that can add a touch of sophistication to any room. Whatever material you choose, the trend is all about creating pieces that are both stylish and functional for your home.
We can’t wait to see how these trends from the High Point Market continue to evolve in the future. We hope these trends will help you create the perfect look for your next design project.
