Last Wednesday night, Lisa Ferguson of Decor Mentor along with 5 of her designer mentors, held an official #HPMkt Twitter chat. This was my first ever twitter chat and boy were the tweets flying. It was difficult trying to keep up. Cheminne Taylor Smith, the VP of marketing for the High Point Market Authority( the world’s largest furniture market), assembled 300 or so pictures of new market intros and Lisa and her Design Mentors: Lisa Kahn-Allen, Elaine Williamson, Jennifer Brouwer, Kati Greene Curtis and Beth Dotolo of Pulp Design Studio curated their favorites from this group. I must say that participating in the tweet chat was like being a child waiting for Christmas morning. It was so exciting to see each new product revealed-like unwrapping a mountain of gifts. Here are my top 5 picks:
Black Console:Top pick by Elaine Williamson Designs, Chic, classic yet timeless. A stately addition to any room.” Chelsea House – Baker Street Cabinet in black with gold detail, and glass doors.
Wooden Table: Top pick by Lisa Kahn – I think this is a fabulous table to use in a pair in front of a sofa or love seat in a library. Tailored and great looking.” Pearson – Table inspired by paneling in estate libraries. 21″W x 21″D x 21″H. Available in 20 occasional finishes.
Green Table: Top pick by Pulp Design Studios “The Conrad Table sets the tone and the bar for a space. With a go bold or go home attitude, this piece can make a room. Just fearless!” Worlds Away – The Conrad Table in gorgeous green.
So what do you think of my favorites? I definitely saw the following trends emerging:
*Honey Comb Shapes
*Lots of Color
*Mid Century Modern Lines
