I'm spending the week at the mammoth International Furniture Market at High Point, North Carolina, a curious place where furniture makers converge twice a year to show their new lines. It is litererally acres of furniture in mammoth buildings. Some of it good, some of it downright disturbing.
Now for some bad news. A big trend for 2008: Global influence. For some reason a bunch of furniture makers think you're craving high end furniture that looks like it came from Pier 1 Imports. OK, maybe you are, but I'm certainly not. But, if you dig the bedding ensemble above, it's from Company C. I was under the impression that Company C was an all-lady band from the 1980's that sang the tune "Fascinated," but I guess these gals are making furniture as well.
