No one was sure what to expect when High Point Market announced it was moving its usual spring session in North Carolina to early June. Some were worried that the semiannual furniture show’s numbers would be down because of the date switcheroo; others thought, with timber shortages across the country, there wouldn’t be as many new furniture introductions to see.

However, the doubters couldn’t have been more wrong. With vaccination rates climbing and a desire to travel growing, High Point was an epic design industry reunion with many showrooms boasting it was one of their best editions ever. And despite everything going on in the world, there were still many new introductions to be seen—and trends to spotlight. We rounded up the ones that you need to have in your home now.
