3 Trends to Find at High Point Market’s Fall TrendWatch
The International Market Centers TrendWatch forecast will present the Entwine, Midnight and Modernity trends at the High Point Market this fall.
HIGH POINT – The International Market Centers TrendWatch Forecast will explore the High Point Market’s myriad new products of Fall 2022 across three distinct themes.
Examples of trends – as showcased by exhibitors at IMC’s 17 properties during the October 22-26 market – will be showcased in a pre-market webinar, digital flipbook, seminar and on-site visit, and in three product presentations on site.
“From dark and moody to light and pastel with neutrals in between, the Fall 2022 TrendWatch showcases the range of products available from IMC’s High Point exhibitors,” said Dorothy Belshaw, Executive Vice President of IMC, Director of Clientele and Marketing.
The trends are:
- Embrace: A tribute to laid-back comfort, quiet times and favorite spaces. Woven natural materials, biophilic design concepts, and comforting textiles come together to deliver the feel-good, clarity, and purpose consumers seek. Affected products include furniture and furnishings made of fresh and intricately woven natural materials; warm wood finishes; indoor/outdoor furniture and furnishings; textiles that soothe; decorative accessories; lighting; and wall decoration.
- Midnight: A showcase of deep, moody hues of moonlit blues and blacks, deep reds and earthy neutrals; burnished metals such as brass and gold; stone accents; and shapes inspired by organic forms. Midnight is serious and sophisticated, but also fashionable with lo-fi vibes meeting blockbuster sci-fi twists. Affected products include upholstery fabrics in warm neutral tones; office and entertainment furniture; burnished metals; stylish lighting and accent furniture; textiles in dark shades; and decorative accessories
- Modernity: Pastels continue to prove their versatility, charm and appeal in furnishings, especially in this latest expression of must-have hues for confident and playful interiors. Soft or saturated, and covering a range from pink and purple to blue and green, these pastels are bright, iridescent and energetic. Affected products include dining furniture, especially designs with matte finishes, glass and metal; upholstery in cool neutral tones; shapely occasional furniture; Wall decoration; wall coverings; textiles and rugs; contemporary lighting; and decorative accessories.
With DesignOnHPMKT scheduled by IMC, the pre-market webinar is October 12 with the in-market presentation on October 22 and the roadshow on October 24. A digital lookbook will be available before the market. The decals will be located in the Green Lobby of the International Home Furnishings Center, at the entrance to the Suites at Market Square and in the Showplace walkway.
Exhibitors at IMC’s 17 High Point properties are invited to submit new products for consideration for the TrendWatch presentations, vignette and tour. Submissions are due September 9. Bid information is available on IMC’s High Point Market website.
