Stay tunned on High Point Market’s Style Spotters (some of the industry’s best interior designers, decorators and architects) and find out what their prewiew trends are for fall 2015.
For Jonathan Legate “Although I wouldn’t necessarily call mixing materials and textures a new trend, I am excited to see manufacturers really embracing this idea in case goods and small accessories. Smooth, chic gold handles on rough hewn boards, semi precious stone slabs used as door fronts on a console. Taking traditional elegant forms and producing them in unexpected materials. Upholstered pieces in traditional frames with rock and roll upholstery fabrics. Shaking things up to create interest.”
So, these are our trendy tips. Check it out!
RELATED HISTORY: TOP 10 PRODUCTS PREMIERES AT HICH POINT FALL MARKET 2015
1. The Lines, EunMyung Soh
The modern material like the elastic band is used to express the cross stripped door lattice of Korean traditional house. And the practicality has been improved with convenient usability to put things in and take things out freely by using the elastic band. It can be designed with various multicolored stripes in series.
The Lath coffee table is made from vegetable-tanned leather, stretched over hand coppiced Kentish chestnut laths to create something lightweight and strong. A smooth English ash frame carries the skin-and-bone seating. The more you use this piece, the more the leather will wear around the laths and the more it becomes yours.
3. Champ Chest,Christian Astuguevieille
Christian Astuguevieille designs are a majestic view into a created culture. Natural rope and painted cotton cord wrapped over a wood base creates an image reminiscent of the most transcendent and experimental artists. These unexpected furniture and sculptural pieces add texture, interest, and intrigue to a space, standing out in handsome and artful innovation.
4. Rolf Benz 985, Rolf Benz
The light coffee table surprises in more than one way. A thick solid wood plate corresponds with a thin stone-veneer plate. The trend topics natural stone and reclaimed wood are beautifully combined in this table. A bronze or black lacquered frame strengthens the light appearance of the table.
5. Keramos, Adriano Design & La Castellamonte
Through a wise and careful research process there has been developed an innovative and distinctive system of ceramic modules fastening through wooden elements, creating in this way a piece of furniture with unique features. Keramos is a modular container with a ceramic shell which makes it immediately recognizable, and which reminds us of the terracotta jars, par excellence containers in human history, which preserved over time their contents. Keramos is a special, not ordinary, piece of furniture, container of precious things which needs to be preserved more than contained. Keramos is produced in 99 numerated pieces, signed and provided with a certificate signed below by the Designers and the Producers.
