High Point Market Upholstery Trends

As I mentioned there is over 10 million sq ft of showroom space at High Point Market which means it is nearly impossible to see everything! As for upholstery there were a few common themes throughout the show.

HP tufting
Tufting continued to be a strong presence at the fall show. It was not limited to the seat or back but the entire piece, I labeled this "overall tufting"!

 HP CurveSofa2

Interesting sofa backs were everywhere which I loved! When a back is so pretty it lets us float the sofa in a room. Some had gentle curves while others had stronger angles.

Channeling, some people love it and some people are not a fan but it seems like a trend and not just for the modern group. These pieces were even mixed with more rustic casegoods.

Both nailheads and round pulls were a lovely detail on many pieces. This Palecek dining chair combined these trends seamlessly!

Colorful upholstered pieces lead to a happy feel around the home.The exaggerated wingback continued to be a trend manufacturers love!

LOVE the tufting, HATE the channeling (looks like a bad idea coming back to bite us from the 80's), ADORE the curvey backs on sofas (very new traditional) and of course, LOVE bright colors everywhere. 3 out of four isn't too bad.

Love the idea of the round pulls. I would like to see it dressed up a bit more, especially on a pretty chair like that. It just seems bulky and heavy on that one.

I agree the scale of the pull on the back is too exaggerated and heavy. Actually, I don't really care for the pull at all, its been done for years and I haven't made use of it in my business yet.
