Art Trend: A Study in Color at High Point Market

Our Studio team & Creative Director took a tour of High Point Market to bring you the latest in fine art and interior decor trends.


Open for trade only twice a year, the High Point Market, held in High Point, North Carolina, is the largest home furnishings industry trade show in the world. With over 11 million square feet of showrooms and 2,000 exhibitors spread across 180 buildings, we had a lot of art to look at!

Current & Upcoming Color Trends

Monochromatic color schemes, based around a single color, and complimentary color schemes, based on colors opposite to each other on the color wheel, have proved popular up until recently. Analogous color schemes, which use multiple colors that are adjacent to each other on the color wheel, were ubiquitous at this year’s Market. The abundance of warm, earthy and verdant tones coloring the show reflect the warmer seasons we find ourselves entering now – explore color trends both current and future below.

  • Russet Tones Russet tones shifting around other warm hues like beige, peach, rust, and umber reflect the warmth of Pantone’s Color of the Year, Peach Fuzz.
  • Earthy Greens Equally represented in showrooms were analogous shades of natural greens.

Future Trends: Analogous Color Schemes

Analogous color schemes will shift away from the current earthy tones and move towards some bold color schemes.

  • Maroon, Brick, & Plum Warm reds scaling towards purple will be on the rise as the year progresses with accents of gold.
  • Serious & Bold Blues Warmer colors will be offset by pops of bold blue or bases of deeper solemn federal blues. Shades of slate will hold formal spaces.
