Housing market woes and skittish consumer confidence translated into subdued introductions at last fall’s High Point Market. But those making the semiannual pilgrimage to North Carolina’s furniture capitol discovered that distinctive design, as always, rises to the surface.
Natural materials and finishes, whiffs of Scandinavia and Shanghai, and omnipresent green sensibilities defined the new entries, which are just now hitting retail floors and residential projects.
Here, we continue our survey of residential products, which began in the January print edition of Market, with 10 more just-released designs uncovered at the High Point show. Begin the virtual tour by clicking to start the slide show above.
