There are a few big color stories at the High Point International Furniture Market. There always are. Subscribers to The Trend Curve™ will read all about them in our next issue. Then there are a few small ones. Purple was among the smallest color stories yet it still stood out as a hue to track for the future.
Regardless of the material, trend-right Purples in High Point preferred dark and, more importantly, warm personalities. The dominance of their Red side helped to differentiate new Purples from those of the recent past. Nicole Miller’s Grape colored sofa for Excelsior was one of my favorites. Here are a few more great examples of Red-cast Purples in leather from American Leather, in silk and velvet from Raymond Waites for Lane Venture and in decorative accessories from Toyo Trading.
