A report from Highpoint Internation Home Furnishings Market – What’s in store for 2014?
Styles were relatively simple in shape, but there seemed to be a renewed focus on craftsmanship. It is the small details that made the difference. Unique and unexpected knobs or handles on storage units and cabinets of all kinds. Nailhead styling, particularly on chests of drawers, were they were used to create intricate patterns was prevalent. Tufting, in some cases to the extreme, used to create an almost quilted look equally graced traditional and contemporary styles. The addition of trim or moulding elevated simple dressers to the next level. Simple shape + great detail + a strong statement.
