This past weekend I took my first trip to High Point Market. I was lucky to have my brother join me and we met up with old and new friends Kimberly and Ellie. We had so much fun exploring floors and floors of new showrooms, learning how furniture is made, sitting and touching everything and partying with celeb designers...ok maybe not partying but we did get a bathroom selfie. There was so much to see and do and one of my favorite things besides lusting over all the gorgeous decor was trendspotting. As I let my overtired feet get some rest and revisit my 5 gazillion photos, I wanted to share some of my favorite new finds and top 5 design trends.

design trend #1-modern macrame

They say what goes around comes around and the 70's are comin' back around y'all. I usually think of macrame as more of a California style that's a trend that won't be around for awhile or aren't necessarily my design aesthetic but I found myself falling in love with some macrame pieces  that would work well in New England and aren't over the top Cali-chill like this chandelier. Yep, that's macrame! I thought it was metal from a distance.

design trend #2- details on the backs of chairs

Nailheads aren't going anywhere but add some leather, metal lines and interesting wood framing to create an even more unique piece that stands out in the crowd.

design trend #3- florals

the floral fabric trend is one that has taken me awhile to get into but florals used this way I can definitely jump on board with especially the brass tables

design trend #4- rattan and natural elements

Lots of natural wood elements from bleached tree tables to rattan chairs and stools. What used to be used mostly for outdoor spaces can now be incorporated in even the most modern spaces. 

design trend #5- acrylic details

Not that acrylic is that new of a design trend but we noticed a lot of acrylic details on the legs of dining room tables, light fixtures and ottomans.

I'll be sharing my favorites and other cool finds from High Point market on the blog next week so stay tuned!
