JUNGLE-INSPIREDWe've seen palm leaves, rattan, and other globally-inspired goods for months now - and Market was no different! Existingin a beach town, we feel right at home with all the natural, and somewhat tropical, elements of this trend. It's pure summer - what's not to love? Standouts from High Point included new interpretations of jute rugs (like this Feizy patchwork jute rug and Jaipur Living geometric woven); play withglobal pattern (like in this Selamat dining chair and Jaipur Living zipper pillow); fun prints (like the Eastern Accents Lanai Collection); and rattan pieces (like this Benton sideboard and Coco mirror from Palacek).
TASSELS, TASSELS, TASSELSTasselearrings are everywhere in fashion; they're a unique way to add detail and color to an outfit. The same is true in home goods; we loved seeing an abundance of tassels and other passementerie detailsin a variety of ways across many showrooms. Our favorites included Kate Spade New York's pillows and blankets with Jaipur Livingandthese Peruvian framed tassels from Imagine Home.
We'll never get enough all-white-everything - but we can't say we're sad to see cool grays and blues take abackseat to warmer and richer tones this year. Saturated jewel tones - like navys and deep greens (a nod to Pantone's 2017 color of the year, Greenery) - covered everything from upholstery to lighting, accessories and more, combined with warm metallics and pale pinks and blushes (swoon). Standouts pictured above include the Rowe Nolan Chair, Palacek Gregory Side Table, "In a Dream" by Wendover Art Group, Ombre Indigo Pillow by Elaine Smith, and Visual Comfort Larabee Sconce.
ORGANIC MEETS GEOMETRICWe loved seeing a casual approach to geometric patterns. These new interpretations felt fresh, organic, and coastal - perfect for our island location. Our favorite iterations came in the form of rugs, like this Jaipur Living Kate Spade New York Gramercy Rug and Feizy Twain Rug.
THE NEW NURSERY
We were interested to learn that Millenials will outspend Baby Boomers in 2017, and further, older Millenials are settling down and starting families. The result: anabundance of unique baby and kid items - from cheeky felt mobiles and canvas bins by Petite Pehr, to this chic glider by Rowe Furniture. Personalization was also key - whether traditional monograms or these nautical flags by Imagine Home, which can be purchased in any combination, spelling your family name or baby's name (how perfect for a beach town?)!
We can't wait to bring some of these trends - interpreted in our own clean, coastal style - to you this Summer! In the meantime, let us know which is your favorite below in the comments.
