High Point Market Spring 2016: Looks We Love

High Point Market wrapped up last week, and if you’re any sort of design fan, you know that it’s the place to spot what’s new and next in the world of furniture and decor. Lucky for us (and anyone else who can’t sneak away to North Carolina for the twice-yearly show), you don’t even have to be there to get a sense of the latest trends. We made it a point to follow the show’s 2016 Trend Spotters — a lineup of design influencers tasked with creating a highlight reel of the show’s best styles — on social media last week, and let’s just say they did their job well. We’ve got a list of new brands we’re obsessed with, colors we’re coveting, and silhouettes we’re sweet on. Here’s a recap of some of the best.

Style Spotter Brynn Olson snapped this shot of Kelly Wearstler’s latest collection for EJ Victor, and it’s every bit as hip as we’d imagined. We especially love the pairing of the abstract wallpaper and art with the linear carving on the sideboard.

Olson also nabbed this vignette from one of High Point’s most beloved showrooms, Julian Chichester. Our favorite part of this look: The unexpected, but gorgeous combination of the Ikat print on the midcentury-style chairs.

This room caught the eye of Anne Sage, the blogger behind CitySage, and we can see why. We’re obsessed with the contrast between sweet shades of blush and bold black.

We’re happy to see that the Chinoiserie trend isn’t going anywhere! We love how this classic look by Tobi Fairley for Woodbridge (also spotted by Meacham Wood) is made modern thanks to the abstract black and white prints.

Textile designer Malene Barnett snapped this stunning console table from John Richard that celebrates the beauty of wood tones with its pattern created by alternating white and black ebony.

Barnett also struck a pose on this kidney bean-shaped sofa from Arteriors Home in on of our favorite textiles of the moment, velvet. (Can you blame her?)
