Color and class coexist at High Point show
May 3, 2004,
Fresh, bright, and colorful on one hand. Elegant, dressy, and soft on the other.
There was a decided lightness of mood across the upholstered furniture segment. Plain fabrics resurfaced with twills, failles, velvets and sleek wovens used in counterpoint with jacquards, prints and novelty dobbies.
Red was a special fashion favorite in the color derby. Warm blues, moving to aqua watery tones, also were significant.
The purple family was well represented from pale tones to aubergine. A popular neutral was a rich chocolate brown.
Prints made a significant statement ranging from retro '50s looks to fresh florals.
