Color trends High Point Market Spring 2015

Last week was my second time attending High Point Market. If you are a designer and have never been, I can’t recommend it enough. It is such an exciting and inspiration trip. I saw so many beautiful show rooms and new products. I have gone through all my photos and I have identified six major trends.

1. Color 2. Organics 3. Exposed wood grain 4. Metallics 5. Geometrics 6. Texture

I will be highlighting all six of these trends with lot’s of photos over the next few weeks. I will start with color since that is what I know everyone loves to hear about.

Color: Blue still seems to be hugely popular this Spring. I noticed less turquoise than last Spring but plenty of deep saturated Mediterranean blues. Navy was also highly represented.

Several show rooms used deep saturated blue on an accent wall. (note: accent walls were very prevalent at Market)


Tobi Fairlet collection for C.R.Laine

Check out the blue and white fabric on these new chairs from Tobi Fairley for C.R.Laine. This animal print fabric must have been the top selling fabric this Spring. It was featured in at least half a dozen showrooms used on everything from sofas to chairs to beds.

Besides the popularity of blue, the big buzz around market and on Instagram was all about “Blush”. Designer Suzanne Kasler debuted her new collection for Hickory Chair in Blush and it was a huge hit.

I just love this round drum shade pendant. It’s so fresh and unexpected, even more so since it is above a very traditional brown dining table.

Blush which is really just another name for light pink was also trending in art work.


This large scale photo of pink flowers from Dunes and Duchess was even chosen by one of “High Points Style Spotters”.

After seeing the above image I was inspired to take a couple of my own flower photos from a pink arrangement at the Thibaut showroom. What do you think? Should I super size one and frame it for my own house?

I saw a lot more Red this Spring than last especially for furniture and accessories.

I still remember the striking red room Alexa Hampton did for Spring 2014 for Hickory Chair and this year she chose to use red once again.

Now that I have showed you Blue, Blush and Red, as all trending, I am going to end with this: If I had to choose one color that was undeniably the number one color this Spring at High Point it would be Gold.

    Linda, I love your photos from market!! And I TOTALLY think the peony photos should be enlarged and framed…they are
    GORGEOUS! I was expecting the gold/metallics trend, and maybe the blue….but the blush was a surprise and I saw it in several designers’ Instagram photos….
    Cheers, and keep the info coming!

    Thank you so much for this important information. I’m not able to attend, but your posting makes me feel like I was a little fairy, drifting through the event with you!

    I’d definitely blow up that photo of the flowers – it’s stunning!

    Thanks for sharing Linda. I love all the colours, but have to say I am especially loving that dark teal in the last photo and how beautiful the golds pop off this hue. Gorgeous!!

    Yes you should definitely blow up those photos! Especially the top one. Gorgeous. Glad blue is still strong- not caring for the red though.
    Thanks for sharing!

    Love your round-up, Linda! These colors are confident and optimistic! When you are ready to blow up some of your photos for yourself (or for clients!) come see me at White Light Visual in Beverly. We can print them super sized using traditional canvas wraps or even mounted on the back of plexiglass – a trend I saw a lot of at the Architectural Digest Home Design Show this March.
