Your Fall High Point Market Style Spotter Selections
Products insights from interior design experts
During each High Point Market—both in the spring and during the fall—a select group of designers from across the United States are picked to share their “Style Spotters Picks” for the most recent market. The Fall High Point Market, which wrapped up in late October, included an impressive selection of style spotters, who picked some incredible items we’d like to share with our Designers Society of America members.
Check out five of our favorite design picks from each style spotter:

Plot Twist Design, Blue Bell, Pennsylvania
1. Leif Petersen Juice Table: Juice is a monumental table with a meditative air. Its essence lies in the base, where the long wooden legs attach to a ring, encircling it. Juice, a table developed around the balance between filled and empty spaces, creates a sensation of perfect calmness.
2. Eichholtz Dining Chair Percy: Decorate your dining area in contemporary style with Dining Chair Percy. This extraordinary chair features a stylish black finish frame and has a round backrest that blends seamlessly into the armrests. Upholstered in a Bouclé cream fabric, it allows your guests to enjoy seating for long periods at a time.
3. Arther Galerias The Bee Nice Cabinet: Knowing the importance of the artisan details, Arther rescued the tradition of the ancient fine Mexican furniture producing with pride The Arther Collection of High End furniture and accessories, all handmade with antique craftsmanship techniques and using the finest of modern materials to obtain unique and exceptional objects.
4. Global Views Squished Bowls: A true work of art, the Squished Bowls are made of slip-molded Italian ceramic with a reactive glaze and are available in two sizes.
5. Alder & Tweed Furniture Company Avery King Bed: A part of the Avery King Bed Collection, this king-size bed is made with Avery fabric and has a Riverstone fin brushed with smoke material type birch wood and upholstered.

1. Julian Chichester Dorothy Dining Side Chair: This is a stunning red or black pebble-grained, leather-wrapped steel dining chair with 1950s origins. There are brass details on the legs and brass feet. The finish shown at Market was camel velvet.
2. Mr. Brown London Jolee Bar Cabinet: The Jolee Bar Cabinet is a contrast of linear and curved forms. It mixes finishes like black-limed ash with blackened brass hardware and shagreen door fronts.
3. Four Hands Yoku Floor Mirror: In this piece, a dowel-constructed outer frame structurally anchors a suspended mirror, bringing a mix of stability yet airiness to this bold floor mirror. The finish is natural oak.
4. Hubbardtown Forge Atlanta Pendant: Schoolhouse sensibilities meld with neoclassical spirit, in the clean and tailored style of the Atlas Pendant. Held in place by arcing metal curves and a wide central band, the large sphere is available in clear, opal or opaline glass options. It is available in custom finish colors.
5. Ethnicraft Boomerang Coffee Table: Playful, pebble shapes set on a beautiful, folded, base for this coffee table. The Boomerang Coffee Table is a fantastic and well-proportioned addition to any space. Configured with the two sizes together or as a stand-alone, this design is sure to capture attention.

1. Living Canteena Clanton Rug: These rugs from Jaipur Living are gorgeous and fascinating. While they look exactly like normal, but beautiful, woven rugs, they are actually digitally-printed and made of 100% polyester, so they are fully water/spill-proof. They are also rubber-backed for traction, so you don’t need to use a rug pad with them, making them the perfect choice for kitchens, bathrooms, pool houses and spas. Such a clever, practical innovation!
2. Global Views All Leather Chair, Deep Red: This all-leather chair from Global Views may have a barely-there minimal design, but I love it when a designer can create something in a silhouette that feels that they’re turned people’s expectations on their head, and created something new.
3. Highland House Furniture Polly the Ping Pong Table: Technically, it’s a dining table, but it just so happens that it’s the exact dimensions of a ping pong table, so you can transform from a lively dinner to an even livelier game of ping pong with the quick, simple addition of a clip-on net. And if that’s not enough fun for you, the table can be wrapped in one of their whimsical wallpapers, making for a super-fun statement piece even while its standing all by itself.
4. Noir Byrde Cabinet: The Byrde Cabinet from Noir/CFC is a perfect example of the trend toward furniture pieces becoming more sculptural, with designs that far outshine the functional capacity of the piece. This bar cabinet is business on top and bottom, and a party in the middle. The eye-catching, accordion-styled center portion connects an upper bar cabinet and lower drawers. This piece could serve as a hallway storage cabinet, linen cabinet or even a hutch for china and flatware. Whatever it’s being used for, it’s not going to have to fight for attention.
5. Villa & House Evan Desk: There’s definitely been a trend toward mixing traditional materials like rattan and caning and using them in more modern ways. The Evan Desk from Villa & House is a great example of that. The crisp, modern lines of the desk are softened by panels of caning on the privacy screen that surrounds the perimeter of the desk.
Rachel Mautner, Founder and Principal
Rachel Mautner Interior Designer, Chicago, L.A. and Orlando, Florida
1. Regina Andrew Cabaret Fringe Chandelier: The Cabaret Fringe Chandelier provides movement and texture while being functional. This poppy and playful fixture would be the perfect fit for nurseries and kids rooms. It was selected for its beautifully died fringe and brass frame.
2. Laura Park Monets Garden Blue Melamine Plate: Known for her textiles, Laura Park has launched a table scape collection that should be adored. From tablecloths and napkins to silverware and plates, this is just one of the gorgeous patterns Park personally creates in her studio and has them printed onto plates.
3. Accent Touch LLC Juju Feathered Hat: I love that there was cultural background behind the product, and the variation of colors and sizes available. Personally, I incorporate texture in my designs, from the floor to the ceiling. The Juju Feathered Hat by Accent Touch is truly creating livable art!
4. Safavieh Gonzalez Pedestal Chair in Black: This chair combines a classic mid-Century modern silhouette with a transitional, comfortable twist. This chair is comfortable and affordable, two words I wish existed together more in furniture design.
5. Interlude Home Pierre Acrylic Backhgammon Table: Interlude Home effortlessly combined glamour with gaming, and made it cool. This table has a glass top on it that can easily be removed to play backgammon.

1. Material Works Woodland Grove Collection: The Woodland Grove Collection is inspired by the natural elements you would see in a modern cottage. I love that Material Works values sustainability and versatility. Their fabrics can be used in indoor and outdoor settings. The patterns in this collection are each beautifully unique, while all corresponding with one another.
2. Teak + Table Outdoor Living The Nest Cabana Lounge (Teak): The Relax Cabana is sophisticated, yet easy to install. It features a louvered design that is stocked and ready for any residential or commercial project. The cabana also has the capability to be designed for any configuration or layout.
3. Baker Furniture Balustrade Chair: I immediately gravitated to the Balustrade Chair by Thomas Pheasant in the Baker Furniture showroom due to its provocative framework and material. The silhouette it created reminded me of a piece you would see in a medieval modern design-styled home.
4. Currey & Company Inc. Serpent Accent Table: Supporting the disc top of the Serpent Accent Table are curvy creatures that pull a balancing act as they clamp down on its thin surface. This is a whimsical aspect of this design. Made of cast aluminum in an antique brass finish, the gleaming gold occasional table will certainly be a conversation starter in any space.
5. Schonbek Secret Garden Chandelier: This chandelier brings wonder and elegance into a space. The beveled optic crystal is made from natural quartz, creating a beautiful glow that will romanticize your design and create a unique experience.

1. Trame Paris Entwine Moroccan Rug: Contemporary French artist Maria Jeglinska collaborated with Berber artisans to hand-knot this stunning rug.
2. Made Goods Jarin Floating Bath Vanity: Brilliant move by Made Goods! Top-selling dresser styles are converted to customizable bath vanities; five sizes, seven finishes and four hardware options, plus a Marble or burl countertop.
3. Caracole Cigar Club Chair: This waterfall tweed lounge chair is made with vegan strapping and brushed gold accents.
4. Red Egg Tattoo Console Table: Be sure to check out this signature Ming Console table with a printed tattoo sleeves wrap.

Home Couture Collective, Hudson River Valley, New York
1. Sarreid Limited Cambiare Extension Table: From a family table to a party table, the Cambiare Extension Table doubles in size from seating six to 12! In a cool Ivory Bianca wood finish, it’s a chic transitional piece, literally.
2. Aviva Stanoff Design Hypknotic Knot Pillow: Aviva creates crystal catchers and presses the forms into velvet.
3. Saba Italia Antonio Marras NY Chair: Antonio Marras is an incredible Sardinian creative-hyphenate, designer and artist. He has collaborated with Saba Italia on hand-drawn fabrics that bring these slip-covered frames to life.
4. Arteriors Pippa Chandelier: Inspired by macrame textile art, the Pippa-tiered drum chandelier delivers breezy boho vibes. The piece is crafted in ivory cotton fringe, punctuated with ivory- coconut wood beads to impart an artisan feel. The fixture is finished with a contrasting bronze iron frame and chain.
5. Massoud Furniture MFG Co Inc. Bardot Tufted Swivel Chair: A hand-embroidered masterpiece wraps around the back of the Bardot Tufted Swivel Chair and is accented by a soft linen-look texture on the inside with a contrast camel leather welt for an extra pop of detail. The most comfortable piece of fashion you can curl up in and stay a while.
DuVal Reynolds, Owner and Principal Designer
Duväl Design LLC, Fairfax, Virginia
1. Norwalk Furniture Paris Sectional: With its standard sectional layout, I felt like this piece could be the next iteration of what curved furniture could be. Rather than having a spherical end, we are met with a rounded triangular edge, offering a geometric design while remaining approachable and inviting. Paired with the two rounded ottomans, the sectional still feels fresh but mature.
2. Kenneth Cobonpue Limbo Hoop: This art piece captures a spontaneous moment of an aerialist in mid-flight. Made of gossamer wires handwoven in a lattice pattern, this dramatic design is both an art piece and a functional lamp! If you get to see this in-person, be sure to note the intricate floral designs that make up parts of her body.
3. Woodbridge Furniture Atrium Bed: Inspired by late 19th Century French provincial originals popular in the Normandy region, this bed was an immediate yes! This bed felt like such a departure from the standard canopy beds we always see, while also still remaining accessible and familiar. The metal frame supports a removable upholstered headboard panel, which also offered more function than a standard canopy.
4. Harp & Finial Swindell Floor Mirror: This matte black finish on a metal framed mirror creates a more visually interesting approach to this functional piece. Upon seeing it, it felt more like the gateway into the next horror film, all while still inviting to the senses. This is definitely more picturesque in person. So pretty!
5. Kravet, Lee Jofa, Brunschwig & Fils and Kravet Furniture Georgica Bar: Mabley Handler did an excellent job of combining form and function! With its metal accents and geometric design, this bar cabinet can function as a piece of art when closed. And to make things even better, the interior contrasting finish, glass shelf, mirrored back, recessed LED lights and pre-catalyzed shelving makes the interior equally as stunning, while offering maximum function. We could all use this in our homes.
