Top Four Trends to Watch
October 21, 2009 - 5:23am

These are the looks that dominated the fall 2010 High Point Market, and are destined to find their way into your most compelling displays.


  • Free-spirited style has elements of both retro and vintage ideas
  • Authentic materials and an artisanal touch define the look
  • Ornate surface decoration turns formal design on its ear

LBL Lighting’s Naïve Crush low voltage dome pendant, shown in amber red, mimics the visual appeal of handmade mosaic glass tiles.


  • One-of-a-kind looks for the masses
  • Swinging ’60s-influenced
  • Playful iconic imagery
  • Sophisticated shapes and finishes

Straight from the Peppermint Lounge, the Bling chandelier by Robert Abbey is shown in polished nickel over metal.

Club Room

  • Manly décor without the rough edges
  • Key materials — leather, suede, iron — have a comfortable, well-worn feel
  • Straightforward design eschews novelty or whimsy

With a sheen that looks years in the making, Arteriors’ Mason wide-hammered iron pendant brings the brio to the room.

Wine Country

  • Sun-drenched colors and earthy materials echo a natural landscape
  • Flavors of Italy, Northern California and Southern France add interest
  • Unpolished, rustic surfaces work well with dark woods and metals

Lush vineyards and olive groves are a common sight in the Italian countryside. Pacific Coast Lighting’s Tuscan Olive Grove chandelier captures that mood.
