Picture a tissue box with an ever so slight tint of pink. It was good enough for our grandmothers – it is even better for this generation! This super soft light pink hue caught our eyes this Market more than ever – on furniture finishes, fabrics, lamps and lampshades, artwork, and wallpaper. A refreshing color with a young vibe, our favorite applications were the lacquered painted finishes. Really good, soft tissue pinks are hard to find on furniture finishes but almost all case goods showrooms had an excellent version. It seems to be a classic look that is trending now and will stand the test of time.

Everywhere we looked at Market there was white! As most people know, we are known for our color. Well, we loved the white this spring, and it kept catching our eyes as we toured showrooms. We have never seen white so sexy! All shades of white in all types of finishes including chalky, lacquer, and natural. We saw it in metals, stones, and most every medium you can imagine. It was really different this Market yet still showed that a neutral white can go with anything and everything! It always fits seamlessly into any design scheme or workup – any period or style.

As we shopped Spring Market we found clean classic lines are still a big trend! We were inspired by the classic forms with clean lines that were popping up in every showroom we visited. We tend to be traditional and loved these looks. It is so nice to see fresh, pared down versions of heavy traditional designs. Instead of heavy carving we saw linear lines in furnishings, lamps, chandeliers, and even tabletop accessories. We feel like these clean lines might be here for the long run. They tend to be more classic and elegant, and can work in traditional, modern and transitional interiors.
