Designers from Interiors Joan & Associates recently visited the largest furnishings industry trade show in the world in High Point, NC. The show encompasses over 11,500,000 sq. ft. of showroom space, 180 buildings, 2,000 exhibitors, and represents products from 100 countries. Our designers logged more than 20,000 steps each day in an effort to bring Omaha the latest trends in interior design fashion.
The designers love seeing the latest craze, but they also have a strategic focus to find what best fits our demographic and client demands. Their days are packed with miles of product exposure, speaking with vendors, and networking with other designers. Market provides an opportunity to rebuild, maintain, and start new relationships. It lets our designers reinvent themselves and embrace inspiring new perspectives.
Here are some of the trends seen at market:
Warmer colors: Cooler gray tones are diminishing and being replaced by warmer colors. Browns and creams are layered with saturated greens, blues, and beautiful warm rust colors.
Furniture details: Creative and unique architectural details such as nail heads, proudly set wood panels, and trim add to softened lines of furniture.
Sofa seating: Companies are making furniture more comfortable, lush, and inviting. Sofas are designed and built so you can comfortably perch on the arm/back, using all sides. Chairs swivel so they can be used in multiple spaces, and cocktail ottomans provide for additional seating and a place to prop your feet.
Market allows designers to experience items in person rather than solely online. Artwork and accessories are hand selected for our showroom. Designers can sit on finished furniture and meet with company reps to learn about the line, providing designers with confidence in the product. Seeing wood finishes in person also provides designers with an understanding about the depth, color, sheen, and texture, which helps them choose custom pieces for their clients’ homes.
