Lighting Trends: HPMKT

Earthy textures, neutral hues, and an ode to artistry. All of these design trends elevated the vibe at High Point Market this fall. Whether minimalist art deco, bohemian maximalist, mid-century modern, or luxury vogue, we’ve got a way to incorporate these trends into your design this year.

Once in Spring and once in Fall, designers from around the country and world are featured at the High Point Buyers Market in North Carolina. Some of our favorite vendors attend including:


Corbett Lighting

Hudson Valley Lighting


Tech Lighting


Troy Lighting

HPMKT Fall 2022 was full of inspiration, and we’ve taken the best of the featured styles and come up with lighting recommendations for our readers. See our picks below!

Earthy Textures

Inspired by earth’s natural beauty, we’re seeing a lot of of organic textures and free flowing shapes in design trends for the next year. Think wicker, jute, stone, and clay. Not only are these textures beautiful in and of themselves, they also make a sustainable alternative to plastic and are built to last.

A super easy way to work the natural texture trend into your design is with light fixtures! A new statement lamp or wall sconce will add the perfect element. We recommend the Margaret Table Lamp by Megan Molten for Mitzi or the Jordan Wall Sconce by Becki Owens for Hudson Valley Lighting.

Neutral Hues

A well designed light fixture in a neutral hue can make pull the whole space together and make any room look on trend. Decorative fixtures in white and gold pair nicely with the natural fiber, bohemian style. But even if you’re more into brights, don’t overlook the power of neutrals to balance color throughout the room.

We like matte black or white finishes as seen on the Sloan Vanity by Nuvo or the Cicada Pendant by Avenue Lighting. These would pair nicely in an art-deco inspired space.

Ode to Artistry

Last but certainly not least, we’re loving the artisanal approach designers are taking these days with their lighting choices. The pieces are full of personality and unique details. An element of hand-crafted artistry is sometimes just what’s needed to take a space from drab to fab.

The Elsa Chandelier by Eny Lee Parker for Mitzi is a work of art! We also love the blown glass look of the Nantucket Wall Sconce for Hudson Valley Lighting.

We hope you feel as inspired as we do designing your next project with these trends in mind. As always, contact us if you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for. We can help!
