High Point Market Authority Releases High Point Market Style Report

The High Point Market Authority (HPMA) has released this season’s much anticipated High Point Market Style Report for Winter/Spring 2017.

This 38-page report was developed by eight home fashion gurus, all part of the HPMA’s 2016 Style Spotters team, who scoured the Fall High Point Market (October 22-26) for the hottest must-have items and then translated their picks into today’s top trends for the report. Trends range from “The Chinoiserie Effect” to “Charming Chartreuse” and from “Facet-nating Details” to “Sophisticated Grandeur.” All trends in the Style Report for Winter/Spring 2017 may found be found and downloaded here.

The Style Spotters program - launched during the October 2011 Market and sponsored by Crypton, Inc., a leading provider of high-performance fabrics - features home fashion pace setters that showcase their favorite products and top trends from High Point Market exhibitors via Pinterest, the at-Market Style Spotters LIVE! event, the Style Report and various media interviews.
