Pink furniture fills the Spring High Point Market

Home furnishings were blushing at the Spring High Point Market in High Point, N.C. Pink was prominent in all its hues, emerging as interior design’s top tone for the season.

You didn’t need a trained eye to pick up this color trend; it was in enough showrooms to give Jaipur, India’s Pink City, competition.

Rachel Ashwell, the designer and founder of Shabby Chic, showed her Lloyd sofa with very soft pink cushions upholstered in blush velvet on a wood frame.

Going bolder on the color wheel was Worlds Away’s faux shagreen pink poufs on a brass base.

Pine Cone Hill, which is known for textiles and bedding, displayed new Flamingo motif sheets and duvet covers on a shocking pink four-poster bed. Designer and owner Annie Selke recently moved to Marrakesh Country Club, a golf community in Palm Desert, Calif., that is famous for its pink buildings.

“It served as the inspiration for my new Palm Springs collection, and I like to say that the area had me at pink,” she said, noting that her Flamingo bedding was also inspired by the artwork of a Parisian atelier.

In Facet, Michelle Workman’s new collection for French Heritage, she used a pink faux shagreen on her Bellini drinks table. It comes in other colours as well.

Barbara Cosgrove showed boy and girl figurine lamps in a resin finished in a matte pink with shades lined in the same colour.

Even makers of outdoor furniture were in the pink. Brown Jordan had its Deia outdoor sofa on display in hot pink with Kelly green accents. It also looked good in white with pink cushions.

Kindel Furniture, which has been made in the U.S. since 1901, manufactures the Dorothy Draper and Winterthur collections. Both used a variety of pinks on tables, chests and upholstery.
