Editor’s Spotlight: Luxe Interiors + Design

Style Director Kathryn Given explores emerging home fashion trends

Much of what we scout at High Point inspires our stories in the magazine and beyond. The beautiful introductions, chic accessories, and bold lighting of Fall Market did not disappoint. Consumer demand is already up and continues to grow despite supply chain issues. As I tune into the trends that are gaining traction now, I look forward to seeing what will continue to resonate in April.

Return to Chrome

While brass has certainly had its moment in the sun, there has recently been a shift towards nickel, chrome, and stainless finishes. The clean, sleek look feels fresh and modern, as exemplified in designer Nina Magnon’s new collection with Studio M Lighting. This punchy piece features funky lines, white glass shades and a of-the-moment polished chrome finish.

Fine Fluting

The fluted trend is here to stay, and we see it popping up on furniture, surfaces, lighting and more. I prefer to integrate the motif into a room scheme in a smaller way which can still have a big impact. Global Views always has amazing accessories, but these elegant vessels have subtle patterning and the white plaster-like finish is so lovely.

Rise of the Outdoor

It’s no secret that the outdoor furniture category is booming, especially with people trying to create al fresco oases at home this past year. What continues to surprise me is how high-design outdoor furniture is now. A consistent source for chic finds is Made Goods which has a huge number of offerings for the outdoors. This sweet faux bois cocktail table is what I want on my terrace.

Curves Ahead

Soft lines and enveloping shapes are currently in vogue as homeowners crave softness and organic elements in their spaces. This mod Alais chair from Nathan Anthony nods to a traditional slipper chair design but feels very now with the cool barrel back seat and chunky feet. A perfect silhouette to add to the living room mix.

Dining Room Redux

As people begin to entertain more at home or just want to jazz up their nightly routine, there has been a renewed focus on the dining room. Elements like dining tables, dining chairs, sideboards, and of course lighting are hot buys. I love this monochromatic pendant light from Arteriors that features an interesting shape and beautiful bead work for a layered, dynamic look.
