The irregular tesselation shapes of last Spring’s market have become more orderly. 6x more orderly, in fact, because High Point Market was literally buzzing with hexagons. The new warm-weather optimism saw these bee honeycomb shapes everywhere. The modernity of geometry, the rebirth of Spring; it was a shape that was easy to appreciate in upholstery, floor coverings, lighting, textiles, casegoods, and accessories of all kinds.
Wilcox – this new venture by Natural Curiosities’ Christopher Wilcox had a rock and roll edgy vibe. The “infinity hexagon” modular shelving units are a modern take on a curio cabinet for containing collections.
Tourmaline Home – Deep indigo blue collided with the hexagonal trend.
Regina Andrew – showed a cowhide rug with metallic accents pieced together into a unique rug that was far too pretty to walk on.
Mr. Brown – The matte white gesso finish on the honeycomb cabinet contrasts so nicely with the mirror to create a beautiful statement piece.
Noir – How does a black steel bookcase makes one love it? 6 sides of love,…I’m telling you.
Lucy Smith – Steel tables in a wide variety of colors and finishes are whimsical and cool at the same time.
Made Goods - The flat white base and simple drum shade can go casual or dressy depending on the room. Such a flexible piece.
Gold Leaf Design Group – small hexagon cups in black, white, or gold for some interesting wall opportunities with flexibility.
Della Robbia – Not only the hexagonal rug, but the subtle quilting on the sofa was also a tiny little honeycomb. Quite lovely.
Cooper Classics – The copper hexagonal set of 4 mirrors was chunky and rustic for a little bit of country cool.
