TrendWatch Vignettes Highlight Consumer Lifestyles At High Point Market
TrendWatch, International Market Center’s signature trends forecast program, offers a nod to consumer lifestyles for the Spring High Point Market showcase, featuring three themes and accompanying products that correspond with the everyday life stages of home furnishings buyers.
Curated by home furnishings forecaster Julie Smith Vincenti of Nine Muses Media, the spring 2018 TrendWatch forecasts includes 66 products and 49 exhibitors in category themes: Modern Family, She Suite and Beyondaries Revisited. The lifestlye vignettes are on display in three locations:
• At Suites at Market Square, Modern Family underscores life stage milestones. Price points that aim higher and furnishings that deliver on meaningful purchase motivators, namely sustainability, wellness and modernity, highlight the vignette geared toward Millennials, especially those born in the mid-1980s, focused on homeownership, marriage and children. Among the featured brands are Alicia Adams Alpaca, Aviva Stanoff Design Inc., carol & frank, Classic Home and Elaine Smith Inc.
• At IHFC Green Lobby, She Suite offers a nod to empowerment in a showcase of office and lounge furniture. The personal style of confident, emboldened executives is realized in workspaces that look as smart as the technology that powers their professional and personal lives. Among the brands featured are Bliss Studio, KAS Rugs and Nourison Industries.
• At Showplace, Beyondaries Revisited offers products that focus on out-of-this-world aesthetics in ultra-cool colors and ethereal, abstract patterns. Among the brands featured are Kevin O’Brien Studios, Nourison and Robin Baron Design.
Vincenti hosts an opening day seminar on Saturday, April 14, 2018 from 2 to 3 p.m. at Suites at Market Square (SAMS-T-1014) to overview the trends (CEU credit is offered).
