Four Fabulous Neutrals for Fall 2016 / by Bobby Berk

Bobby Berk takes a first look at some exciting Fall Market debuts

This season is shaping up to be all about neutral tones and hues of pink at High Point Market. Since I love layering multiple neutral shades in my designs, I’m excited to see this trend hit the showrooms. Perusing the Fall 2016 High Point Market New Product Premiere Exhibitor Picks, I found a few pieces that should fit right into some of my current projects.


Dora Pendant

This collection from Seed Design is absolutely gorgeous. You can choose from a single pendant or a collection of 12, in a copper or brass finish, with or without a ring. The Dora 12, shown below, adds the drama you need for tall spaces without overpowering the space. Each separate glass sphere is adjustable, and can be tilted up to 35 degrees or even completely removed to create a pendant with fewer lights, allowing for endless configuration and design possibilities.

Harmon Side Table

Offered in four great neutral colors (off-white, orange, taupe and black) and two table top finishes (walnut and carrera marble), this versatile piece can be brought into any color palette. Plus, its versatility extends beyond color to a variety of uses, such as a side table, bedside table, or a laptop table over your sofa cushions.

Amor Sofa and Noble Lounge Chair

These two pieces, also from Camerich, are perfect for the transitional client who wants a modern look, but might be afraid of things that are too contemporary. The sofa comes in dozens of configurations and the chair brings in a Scandinavian flair that is super hot right now.


Planet Lamp Collection

Another winner from Seed Design, this collection features a floor, table and wall light that are perfect for neutral modern spaces. I love the copper accents that give the pieces a sleek industrial look, and the sense of balance created by the shape is reminiscent of a kinetic sculpture or mobile.
