ANDMORE TrendWatch previews Fall 2023 High Point Market
TrendWatch, ANDMORE’s semi-annual exclusive trend forecast, explores new product offerings at Fall 2023 High Point Market through two distinctive trends — Brights & White and Middle Ground — through a pre-market webinar, a digital flip book, an on-site seminar and tour, and two on-site product displays during the Fall 2023 High Point Market, taking place Oct. 14-18.
“Fall 2023 TrendWatch themes, which are both contemporary and timeless in nature, will showcase the breadth and depth of product available from ANDMORE’s High Point Market exhibitors,” said Karen Olson, executive vice president and CMO of ANDMORE. “TrendWatch provides an infallible sourcing guide for retailers and designers alike.”
Brights & White
Brights & White is reminiscent of a modern space adorned with tech colors, AI-inspired textures and patterns that appear abstract, perhaps even otherworldly.
Circular forms, sculptural qualities, softened edges and inviting curves encourage exploration. A high-tech trompe l’oeil, the viewer is invited to touch and embrace what is displayed. Brights & White calls on dining furniture that incorporates modern shapes, upholstery in whites, brights, or black fabrics and leather.
Finishes are white and natural with upscale metallic surfaces. Accessories welcome bright colors, stand-out light fixtures and unique patterns with unexpected forms and irresistible textures.
Middle Ground is inspired by warm wood furnishings finishes, much like that of sand, caramel or a lion’s mane. Upholstery takes form in warm and inviting neutrals.
Color cues in Middle Ground beg to observe the integrity of pastels – upbeat pinks, purples and blues with warm accents of yellow and orange-brown hues. Fresh and tempting colors that mimic stone fruit, butternut squash, butterscotch or almond flour complement happy pastels and matte finishes carry out the final impression to a tranquil dream.
“The Fall 2023 TrendWatch program includes stories that lead with watery blues; mid-tone pastels; confident brights and Modern Farmhouse-friendly neutrals,” said Julie Smith, TrendWatch curator. “As we anticipate the holiday season, texture and motif help buyers to gear up for sourcing at the top of 2024.”
TrendWatch is accessible through online and in-person opportunities as part of rich programming by ANDMORE at High Point Market.
The pre-market webinar is scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 4, at 1 p.m. eastern. The on-site seminar is Saturday, Oct. 14, at 12 p.m. in the Sherwin-Williams Seminar Room at Suites at Market Square (SAMS). The TrendWatch Tour of the at-market vignettes in the International Home Furnishings Center (IHFC) Green lobby and the SAMS entrance is Monday, Oct. 16, at 2:30 p.m.
