We went; we saw; we conquered! Several team members from Cottage Grove Vintage Market visited High Point Market on Monday scouting the latest trends and upcoming directions of home interiors. These are the top styles seen throughout showrooms and we’re eager to share them with you!
Blue and White
This color scheme has been around for centuries and has definitely experienced a resurgence in recent years. It’s hard to call it a trend when it’s a classic combination, but the blue and white color grouping was everywhere! And in all types of styles! If your brain immediately jumps to chinoiserie when you think blue and white, imagine it in bohemian vibes, modern shapes, touches of brush strokes, and marbled textures. Blue and white has no limits in home decor.
Woven styles of rattan, wicker, bamboo, and all types of natural elements are being incorporated in interiors through furniture, lighting, and accessories. Many showrooms displayed it with a contrasting smooth structure, like brass or lacquered furniture. Nearly every brand had some sort of rattan lighting in oversized pendants or chandeliers.
Gold and Brass
We’ve been saying for a while that “brass is back,” and from the looks at market, it’s here to stay. The warm metal truly brightens spaces and offers a warm reflection. Lighting fixtures, small furniture, decorative objects and accents--brass isn’t disappearing!
Pulls and knobs are a great way to transform a piece of furniture and the styles we saw at market were statement making pieces. Chunky knobs in brass and oversized pulls were on all types of furniture.
Deep colors of emerald, raspberry, and sapphire (more tones of blue) were lacquered on furniture and upholstered in luxurious velvet and soft, leather on sofas, ottomans, and wingbacks.
Continuing with the bold colors, furniture was showcased in all hues, on all types of pieces. This is another area designers are adding blue, jewel tones, and big hardware--combining three trends just in one piece!
Marbled, Painted Brush Strokes
Again, in lots of blue and white, marbled techniques and painted strokes are being added on everything from glossy furniture, to canvases and art, to ginger jars and small accessories.
Sherwin Williams declared coral is the 2019 color of the year and it was visible at market. Many showrooms featured slight deviations of the hue, going slightly deeper into oranges and almost red, or into the pink spectrum.
