The High Point Furniture Market is the pinnacle event to showcase all that is new in home furnishings and interior design for the coming year. I just returned from High Point, and if I could summarize the trend for you, I’d say, “Refined Meets Rustic” in both style and sensibility.
What is “Refined Meets Rustic”? On the surface, it’s the juxtaposition of classic furniture lines (chesterfield sofas, wing chairs, tufted ottomans) with natural fabrications: linen looks, weathered woods and distressed leathers. The catalog furniture retailers have been quick to create an entire “look” with this surface definition of Refined Meets Rustic.
But, the idea is so much more than meets the eye! This trend invites consumers to reconsider classic rules and the traditional formality that normally comes with classic furniture. This concept is all about mixing moods and layering effects. Crystal chandeliers can play right alongside casual, linen fabrics! And, with classic lines as the anchor, you won’t fall too far astray!
How do you know if this look is for you? Look at your own wardrobe. If you like to mix patterns and styles in your own clothes, if you aren’t afraid to ‘dress down’ a blazer with a great pair of skinny jeans, or perhaps take a simple white T-Shirt and dress it up with great jewelry, you can apply this concept to your home interior design!
If, however, you are more comfortable with a consistent ‘head-to-toe’ look you might want to stay away. Because… This look can become quite clichéd in a hurry if you buy a vignette that doesn’t flow with the rest of your home!
At The Home Interior Warehouse, we’re here to help you achieve Refined Meets Rustic. It may be as simple as helping you to mix accessories to create a more layered style in your room. We can also help you with new sofas, chairs, and tables that follow this new aesthetic. If you aren’t so sure about ‘linen’, that’s okay. We will help you with an array of fabric choices: perhaps an aged leather will work better for you!
The whole idea is choice, comfort, and a level of ‘mix’ that suits your personal taste.
Feel free to stop by and learn more about all the great finds from this year’s High Point Furniture Market. We look forward to seeing you soon!
