Let’s get straight to the point… High Point Furniture Market. We’ve just returned from this annual trip to High Point, North Carolina, and our team at The Black Goose Design is filling energized and excited! We can’t wait to share the good things coming your way in this two-part recap. Welcome to Part 1 of our High Point Highlights!
COLOR IS KEY
The last few market/buying trips we’ve made have proven color is the comeback queen, and this show was no exception! The colors that caught our eye at High Point are greens, reds, oranges, and blues.

We always love seeing blue on the list because it pulls double duty as a color boost AND a calming neutral option.
For a brighter take on these earth-inspired shades, fuscia is an on-trend choice!
We’re coming out of the season of solids and seeing more patterns at play. New, BOLD patterns are in! You’ll start to see more of these statement stars in pillows, furniture, art, and wallpaper.

Even the wall art is taking things up a notch.
A newer approach to pattern that we’re loving is pattern pairing. For example, this can be done by mixing more than one wallpaper in a single room, with one design on one wall and another on another. Bold? Yes! Amazing? Absolutely! The trick to remember is considering your pattern’s weight/scale. If one print is very large or busy, opt for a smaller or more symmetrical look as its counterpart. This helps the two complement rather than compete.

CRAZY FOR CURVES
Also on the softer side, we’re taking our straight lines for a curve. The blunt, linear look is being offset with movement.
Chairs by Lee Industries
We also spotted unique furniture configuration, like the larger cushion at the center of this sectional.
From color works and pattern play to shapely finds and more movement, t’s easy to see why this trip to High Point Furniture Market was an annual highlight.
Stop by The Black Goose Design over the next few weeks to see these and other new looks start to hit our showroom floor. Plus, don’t forget to join us right back here on May 17, 2023 for part two of our High Point Highlights. Next time, we’re talking a trend taking the design world by storm. You won’t want to miss it!
