Developed by eight home fashion gurus who are part of the Style Spotters team, the 17-page report translates their hottest picks into today’s top trends. The report highlights 18 different trends, ranging from “Celebration of Minimalism” to “Materialistic”, from “Form Driven Inspiration” to “Colour & Creative Craftmanship”.
In all, the report features 91 different products from 64 different High Point Market exhibitors. Trends in the Report can be found at
“It’s always intriguing to see Market through the individual eyes of each Style Spotter, as each has such a distinctive design style,” said Michelle Jennings Wiebe, Style Spotter Emeritus in her intro report. “With so much ground to cover, it’s nearly impossible to see everything, no matter how many steps you put in. So, sit back and enjoy these fabulous pieces. Find your favorites and see which trends you think will become stronger over the next year.”
