Design2Sell’s CEO and Creative Designer Barbara Heil-Sonneck and Senior Property Stylist, Barbara Ader, attended the 2018 semi-annual High Point Furniture Market last month in High Point, North Carolina, and brought back tons of new inspiration and products. The perfect place to source new furniture, design pieces, art and more, High Point is also the top place to discover up-and-coming design trends, or learn what is on the way out.

Below are some of the top trends and designs, plus the prettiest vignettes, that Heil-Sonneck and Ader discovered while at High Point:

If no one has noticed, fashion and home design go hand-in-hand. Velvet is making its comeback into fashion, which means it has also found its way back into home designs.


Nature themes and wood elements are growing in popularity. Many rooms were showcased at the market that included both large and small wood features that were the focal points.



Many designs showed that monochromatic schemes are slowly phasing out, and color is being incorporated more strongly. These bold colors are being seen even more often in artwork, décor and accent pieces.



Nesting tables are being seen everywhere this season. They are functional space-savers that are great for rooms large and small. They’re great as end tables, side tables, nightstands or even coffee tables.

Speaking of being seen everywhere, faces are being incorporated into décor and accent pieces, art and even art installations.



Eclectic touches are also being incorporated more overall design schemes. From modern furniture paired with traditional elements to farmhouse designs paired with glam accents, mixing and matching décor styles, textures and time periods will continue.



Last, but not least, round is in! Designers are looking at every corner to add curves and softer lines into design pieces.
