Wow! We are just back from spring 2015 High Point Market and feeling so enthused. Buyers loved our new collections – Elan and Radly and both received floor placement – yay! The best part about market is that we get to meet up with our customers, many of whom are the industry’s finest designers and interior decor enthusiasts.
Some of this spring’s High Point Market highlights and trends included:
Home Furnishings News Magazine, HFN, selected our Radly sectional for its Highlights from High Point Market article, featured on page 93. Thank you so much HFN!
A clever approach to trend-spotting at market was the “Instagram Takeover.” The International Market Centers at High Point started “#DesignOnHPMkt Instagram Takeover.” On specific days during market, a designer would “take over” the @DesignOnHPMkt’s Instagram account and post their likes/finds.
Nathan Anthony Furniture was among the likes and finds tagged during market. On Monday, designer @BenjaminVandiver took over @DesignOnHPMkt’s IG account and posted our Gobi chair as his favorite design pick stating, the Gobi is “fully upholstery and fully chic.” Thank you Benjamin Vandiver!
On Tuesday designer @JustinShaulis took over @DesignOnHPMkt’s IG account and posted our Perle sofa as his design pick. He loved the “sexy” grey leather. Thank you Justin Shaulis!
@HomeOnTheRunway tagged us as coolest showroom display concept. Our principal designer, Tina Nicole, designed the showroom with light colors and a large scale wall mural depicting an image of a European apartment with oldworld moulding, fireplace and chandeliers. To add to the richness of the room, the wall mural was done on velvet. Visitors went crazy for it! Tina’s on-trend color picks for market included pastel pinks and many deep-hued blues and greys.
@MichealMurphyDesign took a photo of our new Elan sectional and tagged us on his Instagam account saying “Double tap if you agree… @NathanAnthony_Furn has a cute back side” see below… Very clever Michael Murphy Design! And, thank you!
This spring’s High Point Market was a great success. On behalf of Khai and Tina and the Nathan Anthony team, we would like to thank everyone who visited us!
