The second of my two sponsors for the High Point Furniture Market was HGTV Home, the home products division of the television channel HGTV. They have taken their expertise in homes and gardens and have partnered with brands like Bassett Furniture, Sherwin-Williams Paints and Shaw Floors to bring their viewers a way to create their own style, based on what they’ve seen on HGTV.
For the first time, HGTV Home had a space at InterHall, the part of the Furniture Market which showcases up and coming furniture designers and brands. HGTV Home’s corner space proved to be an ideal location to showcase the new trends and products they are featuring this season.
It’s all about updating to turquoise, navy and lapis. By simply updating the colours, you update the prints.
Sherwin-Williams is producing the paints and wallpapers for HGTV Home and they’ve created collections for American homes, ranging from Coastal Cool to Global Spice. The paints and papers in each collection are designed to work together to create a cohesive space. For the DIY home-owner, it takes a lot of the guess-work out of the decision-making process and eliminates the fear of having clashing shades.
One of the most eye-catching pieces in the showroom was a custom-created mosaic wall-hanging made up of more than 60 pieces from the HGTV Home collection, including flooring, fabrics, tiles, carpeting, wallpapers, paints and more.
The piece was massive, and the staffers at the showroom told me that it weighed a ton! Well, maybe not a ton, but it was very heavy. It really showcased the range of pieces that HGTV Home offers. They even had a card with each of the pieces numbered and sourced. So clever.
I will be back with a look at HGTV Homes’ furniture line with Bassett Furniture.
