Happy Monday friends! I know High Point Furniture Market was the the beginning of April... and it's taken me a few weeks to get my act together to post about my trip.  Better late than never right? I couldn't leave you guys hanging from my Market Predictions post! So here's the low down. I only made it through ONE building. Yes I know, it's a little sad and I expected more of myself but I had a great time, saw some great things [and some great people!]

For a reference of my predictions:
Mixing Metallics
Statement Mirrors
Radiant Orchid
Ginger Jars
Bold & Bright Colors
Heavy Geometric Patterns
Oversized Florals
Lacquered Accent Furniture

I was very surprised with the lack of support for the Pantone Color of the year, Radiant Orchid.  In the past markets, the Pantone Color of the year has been such a focus with the showrooms whether it's paint, accessories, or even the furniture [ie: Emerald in 2013 & Tangerine in 2012 ] However, I was right on most of my other predictions! Mixing metallics and statement mirrors are not going out of style anytime soon, so if you've been a little weary on the trends - don't be! Ginger jars & Geometric patterns were also everywhere! 

As for now, I'll leave it at that and I'll let let the pictures speak for themselves...
