HIGH POINT — The American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame is showcasing a new Trend Spotter exhibit during the Oct. 14-18 High Point Market highlighting the theme of “Divine.”
Global creative futures agency FS (Fashion Snoops) produces a new trend exhibit each fall and spring for the High Point Market. The Divine-themed trend exhibit on the second floor updates the Symbiotic theme that has been on display since April at the Hall of Fame home at 311 S. Hamilton St.
“As we emerge into our ‘new normal,’ consumers search for hopeful visions of a more harmonious future,” said Kristen Moonjian, creative director of home and lifestyle at FS. “Our homes have been transformed into sanctuaries, places of refuge for clarity of thought, spiritual practices and mindful reconnection with oneself.
”Inspired by ancient sources of wisdom, the Divine trend combines a warm sense of simplicity with time-honored craftsmanship, exuding a sense of humble refinement as well as a heavenly sophistication.”
For the “Divine” exhibit, a curated selection of 12 to 15 furniture and home accent pieces demonstrating the theme will be on display. The products will range from upholstery and case goods to lighting and rugs, featuring creative design elements that reflect key elements of the Divine trend.
In creating these trend showcases, FS partners with three leading industry groups: the International Textile Alliance, sponsor of the semi-annual Interwoven textile show; the High Point Market Authority, organizer of the High Point Market; and the American Home Furnishings Hall of Fame Foundation. The partnership calls for FS to identify four fabric trends during each November and May Interwoven and through a changing product exhibit each April and October High Point Market.
