2019 Atlanta Market Takeaway

A New Year means fresh product picks at the Winter markets and SO MUCH fabulous home inspiration for 2019! Here are five of the standout trends from the January 2019 Atlanta market according to Becky Harris, Houzz Contributor and we could not agree more. Here is our takeaway from Becky’s roundup plus our timely suggestions for incorporating these ideas into your own home décor.





  1. Layers of Textures

    “A wide range of textures dominated the Atlanta market, which is wonderful news for home design. Layers of natural and nature-inspired textures make a space decorated in a neutral scheme come alive.” Tip: Look for boxes and mirrors featuring shells and bone inlay, geode coasters, framed agate artwork, and tactile surfaces on trays and chests wrapped in raffia and linen to accentuate your decor. 4-Drawer Chest – Available in Ship Bottom. Bone inlay box available in Southampton & Ship Bottom



  1. Velvet Upholstery and Accents

    Another captivating texture seen everywhere this Winter was luxurious velvet. “Deep jewel tones like emerald green and sapphire blue were Market favorites, along with ruby and topaz yellow also making an appearance.” We’re loving hi-lo textured pillows in lush color ways including these staff picks by Company C. Multiple Color Pillows – Available in Southampton & Ship Bottom





  1. Strong Curves

    “In addition to the velvet upholstery in jewel tones on furniture, curves continued to wind their way through the winter market this year.” Whether seen in the curved lines of an elegant sofa, or in the sculptural curve of a chair as shown here, soft curves dominated the upholstery scene. Tip: Offset curved elements with more linear designs to create balance. Bernhardt Chair – Available in Southampton 




  1. Handcrafted Items and Artful Pieces

    Also of note this Winter was a trend toward handcrafted items with a strong appreciation for one-of-a-kind appeal. Try adding an artisanal touch to your home with European dough bowls, hand-carved wooden sculptures, or hand-woven throws and baskets. Select items with a unique perspective and an interesting story behind them. Dough Bowls – Available in Southampton & Ship Bottom



  1. Relaxed European Simplicity 

    “This was the first show in a while that wasn’t dominated by American farmhouse and industrial style.” Sightings of elements like rough wood, overly rusty finishes, bare Edison light bulbs and barn light fixtures were few and far between. “There were definitely more refined European inspirations influencing country style, with smoother wood surfaces, tailored linen upholstery and Belgian, French and Scandinavian-inspired silhouettes”.  Alexandria Sofa – Available in Southampton & Ship Bottom
