Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, Off to Market We Go!

Okay, so really it’s “Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, Off to Market THEY (*sob*) Go!” because yours truly is not going to North Carolina on the company dime.  But I shall live.  And likely without the shin splints the Schneiderman’s buyers will have after spending days walking through showrooms highlighting this season’s offerings from every major furniture manufacturer on the planet.  I’m not wildly jealous.  Really. 

High Point Market (www.highpointmarket.org) is a huge event in the world of furniture.  This is where decisions are made about the things you will see at your favorite furniture showrooms.  All the trend-makers are there.  So stay tuned, because when the Schneiderman’s team is back, we will have some amazing new things to show you!  In the meantime, enjoy this clip of flash mob entertainment at last season’s market.

High Point Furniture Market – Fall 2010

This is just going to be a brief recap of what our team (Susan, Chad, Natalie, Jason, and Larry) noticed while they were at High Point Furniture Market this past week. Susan, Chad, and Natalie will be writing a more in depth report that I will post soon.

However, I’m very excited about some of the things they saw and wanted to give some highlights here. Of course, if you’ve been following us on twitter: www.twitter.com/Schneidermans you’ve already heard some of these:

High Point Furniture Market – Fall 2010 – Schneiderman’s Furniture Quick Recap

Gray was HUGE! Charcoal gray, dove gray, warm gray, parchment gray, gray everywhere you can imagine, but it was usually a warmer toned gray and often accented with vibrant colors like teal, peacock, citron, and coral. A lovely combination that jumped out everywhere.

Linen was also a popular theme, whether it was actual linen fabric itself or the texture of linen in other forms. In fact, natural materials like linen and natural wood finishes were incredibly popular this season. Our team saw a lot of driftwood style wood and colors (more gray!) Rough textured wood was popular and the trend of reclaimed and recycled materials continued this season in full force.

Script patterns and word graphics on fabrics were popular. As was the move away from darker brown and black leather to lighter colors in sandy tones and even bright leather colors like peacock blue and palm green, in addition to, of course, gray.

Turquoise and yellow greens were popular as accent colors in accessories. Speaking of accessories, canvas prints continued to be very popular (I love those! We have a huge selection at our stores, especially in our Plymouth location).

Vintage poster art and vintage patterns were seen in cocktail ottomans (very unique!) It seemed like the most common style trend was French vintage/Paris fleamarket. Very laid back and sophisticated at the same time Tres chic!

I’ll be back with a more detailed report (and photos) soon!
