If you’ve scouted High Point Market in the past, you’re familiar with the buzz (and beauty) of its vast terrain.
Held semi-annually (in spring and fall), High Point Market features more than 2,000 exhibitors from 100+ countries, an event luring over 75,000 people to High Point, North Carolina, every time.
And if you missed this April’s round-up, you can still visit High Point’s fall market in October.
Today, we’re recapping 5 interior design collections from April’s High Point Market guaranteed to catch (or recatch) your eye.
Visual Comfort X Paloma Contreras
When searching for lighting fit for upscale, traditional spaces commanding a modern approach, look to Paloma Contrera’s collection with Circa Lighting in Visual Comfort.
This series features pendant lighting, chandeliers, table lamps, and sconces with a clean, modern silhouette. With hand-rubbed antique brass, polished nickel, clear glass, and bronze finishes, you’re bound to find the perfect fit for a client project!
Contrera also designed geometric ceramic bases, like the Maxime medium table lamp, ideal for console tables or nightstands.

Hiroshi Koshitaka X Currey & Company
Designer Hiroshi Koshitaka’s lighting collection also spotlighted this past April. With rattan and wrought iron compositions, Koshitaka created a mid-century modern style that bends traditional Japanese motifs.
In sync with the current biophilic interior design trends of 2022, Bethanne Matari of Currey & Co., stated, “all of our best-selling new products in the lighting category consist of rattan, abaca rope, water hyacinth, grasscloth, and coco shells.” Matari summarized April’s collection as one filled with warm neutrals, dense texture, and natural materials.
Further reflecting this natural approach, Koshitaka sought to symbolize the fulfillment of Saisei—the notion of growth and rebirth—when collaborating with Currey & Co. He also took inspiration from the Color Field tradition of the 1940s.
A few highlights from his collection include the Tsukiyo Pendant, Graduation Pendant, and Saisei Grande Chandelier.

Accent Decor ran the gamut in home accents this spring, from candles, pots, and vessels to stylish hooks. Their Rosario Wall Hook, for example, functions as a coat rack for tiny spaces while moonlighting as a squiggly piece of art on your wall.

Greenington Fine Bamboo Furniture
This spring’s eco-friendly collection showcased the Rosemary coffee table, crafted in solid wheat bamboo. “Wheat is the newest addition to our earth-friendly mechanical finishes, which uses no stain” but provides “continuous color throughout the material,” says Mary Settle of Greenington Bamboo Furniture, adding, “our other environmentally safe mechanical finishes include Amber, Ruby, Caramelized, Exotic Tiger, and Exotic.”
When designing beautiful furniture tonally in sync with nature, Greenington Bamboo Furniture took the lead. Harvesting bamboo from China, their process is environmentally friendly and sustainable. Greenington also uses 100% of their harvested bamboo (even its sawdust), which results in zero waste.
Inspired by Scandinavian modernism, the Rosemary style even has a matching end table in caramelized and black walnut shades.
Another sought-after piece from their Hanna collection (which has yet to be debuted on their website) includes this handsome console table, also composed of 100% bamboo.

Nathan Anthony x Sahara Novotna
When Nathan Anthony’s creative director, Tina Nicole, partnered with Los Angeles based multi-media artist Sahara Novotna, they combined their talents to create unique pieces of furniture-as-art.
For Nathan Anthony’s ALAIS collection, a curvaceous sculpted seat featuring two spherical legs crafted in resin by Novotna made for the ultimate arty lounge chair. The best part: it’s all upholstered in plush Italian velvet.
“In addition to the ALAIS items, another showstopper presented at the April High Point Market is our limited edition ÆTHR chair we created together,” says Nicole. “Only five will be hand-produced in our L.A. studios, and the other designs are made-to-order. Our chair collection is the first at High Point Market to be minted as NFTs, so we’re set to design unique products for real homes as well as for the Metaverse,” adds Nicole.
