  • A New Look for Arteriors at High Point 2016

    Thursday, November 03, 2016


    This year at High Point Market, Arteriors demonstrated how transitional the Arteriors collection can be by creating an urban glamour look with a pink vibe with their guest designer Windsor Smith.


    Arteriors have added another 240+ new products to their Fall 2016 Collection.

  • Upcoming Trends from High Point Market

    Tuesday, May 05, 2015

     

    In mid-April our Founding Director, Shelley Boyd, went on her annual trip to the United States for the trade show experience like no other, High Point Market.

    Over 75,000 people visit Greensboro, North Carolina, twice a year for the largest home furnishings trade show in the world. Exhibitors at High Point are renowned for not only forecasting the upcoming design trends, but offering an inspiring hub for design enthusiasts to congregate from around the world. 

    After attending the Spring market over 18-23 April 2015, Shelley returned to Head Office feeling inspired and buzzing with ideas.

    As national distributors of the Arteriors brand, Shelley also had the privilege of seeing the amazing new product range first-hand, as well as spending some quality time with the team.


    The beautiful saucer pendants hanging behind Shelley is the latest and very cool Remus Pendant.

    While feeling inspired and fascinated by all of the amazing products, brands and designers on showcase at High Point, it was the stunning exhibits by Arteriors, Skyline Design and Julian Chichester that stood out to Shelley.


    Upcoming design trends to look out for in this coming year:
    (as seen at High Point)

    ART DECO

    Metals are still going to be huge! Whether its mixed metals, mixture of materials and finishes, or metals mixed with minerals like agates and geodes. Expect to see a lot of brass, bronze, copper, nickel and stainless in the Boyd Blue Showrooms.

    CONCENTRIC CIRCLES

    We’ve always loved the circular look at Boyd, but this was also a popular trend at High Point. Watch out for this look in round mirrors, designs with rings, as well as layering of rings and circles.

    Get the look now with our Lanyard and Centurion Mirrors!

    COLOURS

    Pops of colour are going to be a massive trend, this look was everywhere at High Point. In particular, blues, greens, teals and navy tones (just what we love at Boyd). Mohair velvet is also right on trend, in fact all the colours from our Boyd velvet range were on display. Contrast piping on furniture and coloured lacquer furniture were also a stand out look.

    TIMBER

    There was some lovely timber furniture on display at High Point, with great timber colours and wood grain going in all directions. Watch out for unique timber styles.

    FEATHERS

    Feathers have remained on trend, appearing in a range of designs and products. Think sub straights/materials from wall art, cast in metal, on fabrics, wall paper and event stuffed birds!

    GLAMOUR

    The glamour/luxury/sophisticated looks were everywhere, and another trend to watch out for; this look is very feminine and styled with colours such as pink and blush, mixed with brass and gold.
