Back in Los Angeles and ready to share our favorite moments from High Point Market. It’s most fun to see our customers and connect with industry friends and colleagues while we present our newest designs. This year, we focused on showing off our upholstery skills and really telling the world about our craft we call “upholstery art.” By far the star of the show was our new Chablis collection… Here are two instagram live videos taken from the showroom.
We find the best blogs are “tips and tricks” of the trade. So, we want to present three take-aways from the market. Knowing these will certainly help boost awareness of your work and help you stand out as an interior design professional.
The chair is perhaps the most important piece of furniture. It is the finishing touch of personality, or that extra pop of color or shape that completes a room. Buyers will come by our showroom at market just to see what chairs we are bringing, or how we are changing up our “covers” on a chair.
2. 360° CRAFTSMANSHIP
Dubbed the “craftsman movement,” today buyers want furniture with stand out features, beautiful from all angles. History, craft and evolution of the design makes the piece relevant… telling the story about the inspiration and journey of making furniture. Use technology to tell the story, whether it’s with video, animation or sketching. Each piece we design is a sculpture. Every angle says something special, something beautiful.
Choice of color has a tremendous effect on furniture buyers. We’ve never seen how powerful purple can be. Our standout model was CIELO covered in Ultrasuede amethyst. Buyers went crazy for it, posting things like #fortheloveofpurple. Maybe it’s because Ultraviolet is Pantone’s color of the year, but this piece in that cover was electrifying.
Soft hues evoke a serene feeling. Buyers are seeking out these schemes for the interior as they are au courant in fashion.
Neutral colors are always the best solution for large pieces in the room like sofas or sectionals. But, you can have fun and brighten them up with pops of color. Try to use fresh hues like some of our favorites: Ultrasuede hot pink or wine’ n roses.
