2015 FALL HIGH POINT MARKET PREVIEW: A FEW OF THE DESIGNS I'M LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING

by Marisa Marcantonio


There are so many great launches to look forward to seeing this High Point Market. The most highly anticipated is that of Kate Spade with EJ Victor. I'm also going to check out the Kelly Wearstler collection while I'm there, because seeing all of her pieces together will be incredibly inspiring. Then there are the companies that always innovate, bringing fresh new designs and styles that provide insight to the coming trends. Be sure to check back and see my High Point Market coverage, there will be a lot of terrific new design to share. For now, here are some pieces that have already captured my attention well in advance of touching down on the tarmac at Greensboro International Airport.

Florence Broadhurst, the boldly inventive Australian textile maven of the late 1960's is launching an inspired collection with Selamat Designs that includes this textured brass cabinet with Cubist influences. Selamat is known for their woven wicker and rattan, so I am looking forward to seeing them work in mixed materials that up the glam factor.

There is no denying my affection for small side tables. I just can't get enough of them. Noir is introducing this antique brass hexagonal table, the Aria, and I've already been captivated by it, sight unseen.

I can always rely on my friends over at Oomph to introduce colorful new designs that are full of style. Their new Saybrook lantern in orange is big on chic.
