Interior Design Trends and Why I’m loving them

As an interior design student, I’m expected to know what is trending and what to expect for High Point Furniture market. For those of you who are not familiar with “HPMkt”, it is the largest home furnishings show in the world (like fashion week, but for furniture). Every big name in the business attends. I have been interning with an amazing furniture company called red egg that specializes in the most beautiful rattan pieces. Through this experience, I have been able to learn the ins and outs of a business, along with the process of product development (my passion). As fall market is approaching, there are specific trends that I’m excited to look for! Here are a few:


Velvet is still a yes! I just can’t get enough of it. The texture is such a nice contrast in any room and adds extra lux to whatever you choose to put it on (pillows, chairs, bedding, etc).

Greens are really in right now and I just love all of them from bright to dark. Its a great accent color or ahhh-mazing on a couch (especially in velvet).

I love all the pink and blush going on lately. Pink has always been my favorite color….on home decor, nails, bags, shoes, jewelry. I’ll take it all.

All the shag rugs are giving me 70’s vibes! They add great texture to a space… on a chair, a throw, a rug, pillow, etc.

I hope you love these as much as I do!
