The High Point Market Authority has released this season High Point Market Style for Summer/Fall 2016 trends with the hottest must-have items and today’s top trends.
The Style Spotters program, launched during the October 2011 Market, features home fashion pace setters that showcase their favorite products and top trends from High Point Market exhibitors via Pinterest, the at-Market Style Spotters LIVE! Event, the High Point Market Style Report and various media interviews.
“Twenty five autumns ago, as a recent college graduate, I first felt the magic of High Point Market. I fell in love with the beautiful furniture, artwork and exquisite objects, the gracious town, its charming southern hospitality, and long heritage in American furniture. The prestigious tastemakers of our 2016 Style Spotters team also had a blast. With a unique perspective based on their own design style and preferences, each has selected the top trends from Spring Market. Please enjoy this special, curated collection of styles for the new season – and join us this autumn for another magical Market!” Michelle Jennings Wiebe, ASID

Island Style Living by Malene Barnett
The idea of relaxing in a Caribbean villa was prevalent in many collections. Jute, a natural fiber found in many parts of the world, was one of the material highlights of Market.
Geometric Patterns by Malene Barnett
Geometric patterns were everywhere, and their prominence indicated that companies are not afraid to express a love of pattern. Techniques, ranging from hand-carved and patchwork to laser cut, each expressed a different aesthetic, but all in a modern style.
Sharp and Masculine by Laura Bielecki
Masculine interiors, inspired by the emergence of men being more involved in the home, have dominated a trend toward more masculine forms. Dupuis Design Collective was on point (no pun intended) with strict, angular forms in metal, wood and marble.
Sharp and Masculine by Laura Bielecki
Sharp and calculated, masculine pieces were all over Spring Market.
Texture Trove by Marie Flanigan
ls exceptional design and there was no lack of it at Market! I left dreaming of woven natural fibers and handsomely burled wood. New to the scene is plaster, which is popping up everywhere from lighting to décor. Light and airy, it lends a casual California vibe to heavier, more structured pieces, and I love that it can be reinforced with resin for furnishings that call for increased strength and durability.
The Softer Side of Spring by Marie Flanigan
We’ve spent years embracing the strength and power that industrial elements deliver to a space, but Spring Market was all about getting in touch with the softer side of design.
Green is the New Black by Anne Sage
A distinctive shade of deep, inky green played the role of a neutral in all furniture and decor applications this Market. Neither decidedly warm nor cool, this versatile hue can easily take the place of black or navy, and it easily veers traditional, glam, industrial, or beyond.
Scalloped Edges by Erika Hollinshead Ward
It seems that we can’t get enough of organic forms. The curvaceous scallop motif made a splash at Spring High Point Market, gracing door panels on stately sideboards, borders of elegant entry tables, and silhouettes of sassy side chairs.On case goods, scalloped edges donned metallic finishes, suggesting the stunning iridescence of fish scales.
The Frontal Plane by Erika Hollinshead Ward
Everything seemed to have depth at Market, as a sculptured look arrived in chests, servers, and consoles. Case goods came alive as light played across the front face of cabinet drawers and console doors. Sometimes as simple as applied moldings and jewelry-inspired hardware – others as complex as geodesic shapes .
