I LOVE going to market! It’s one of my favorite parts of my job. Market, as we call it, is where retailers such as myself go and shop 1,000’s of vendors and choose what our store’s will carry for the season. I’m fortunate enough to go to furniture market, home decor market and apparel market. Tough gig, huh? Shopping for days on end?!
Here are my predictions for what I think will be the hot trends at market this year…
Las Vegas Furniture Market: I think we will see brown upholstery replaced by grey. Dark casegood (wood) pieces replaced by lighter hues such as white.
Dallas Accessory Market: I predict we will see tons of black and white home decor items spurred on by the Fixer Upper craze. I also think we will see “gold” as the metal component of the year. Don’t freak out, not brass…but gold. Mixed with these elements, I’m expecting to see hues of rose-pink. We shall see?
Apparel Market: On the spring horizon, I’m 100% certain floral has not gone out of style and more feminine looks will still be strong at market. Polka dots have been making a comeback as well as flare leg pants.
Stay tuned! We will post photos on our Facebook pages from market at furniture, home decor and apparel market and ask for your opinions! What would you love to see us get?We’d love to hear from you!
