    Curated Program Showcases Cutting-Edge Designs from High Point Market

    High Point, NC – (October 13, 2015) – International Market Centers (IMC) announced the names of 49 winners for its popular TrendWatch program at High Point Market this fall. TrendWatch is a unique program that gives market attendees an inside look at leading trends in the home furnishings industry through an opening day seminar and three on-site trend displays. The on-site TrendWatch displays feature new products from tenants and exhibitors at High Point Market and showcase how these trends influence style and décor for home furnishings – products ranging from furniture to textiles, materials to decorative accessories. 

    Curated by industry insider Julie Smith Vincenti, decades-long editor and editorial director for award-winning business-to-business publications and websites, and founder of Nine Muses Media, the product displays reflect different themes and change each market. This market’s themes are BEYONDaries, Fearless & Flirty and Las Islas Bonitas. Beyond the three different displays – located in the Suites at Market Square Lobby, IHFC Green Lobby and the walkway between IHFC and Showplace near the Transportation Terminal – join Julie as she gives a fresh perspective to these trends LIVE at her keynote seminar – TrendWatch: An Inside Look at the Future of Design on Saturday, October 17, 3:30pm-4:30pm in the Suites at Market Square Seminar Room (SAMS 1-1014).
