IMC’s TrendWatch features three directional themes – MEADOW, PENTHOUSE and AVIARY – at Spring 2020 High Point Market. TrendWatch is curated by 24-year magazine editor and home furnishings forecaster Julie Smith Vincenti of Nine Muses Media. The trends are influenced by consumer insights and creative intelligence from the interiors, fashion and consumer product arenas.
To be considered for TrendWatch, exhibitors must submit digital imagery (measuring at least 5”x7” at 300 dpi) and a completed product description form by Feb. 26, 2020.

This season’s three TrendWatch themes showcase top home furnishings trends at the start of the new year and a new decade,” explains Smith Vincenti.
The three vignettes will be located in the walkway between IHFC and Showplace near the transportation terminal, in the IHFC Green Lobby and in the Suites at Market Square lobby. Printed copies of a TrendWatch publication will be available at the opening day seminar and digitally via a QR code scannable at each of the displays.
PENTHOUSE, neutrals dominate, while texture, finishing and form create intrigue;
AVIARY aligns abstract patterns with bird motifs and patterns for a look that’s both airy and sophisticated;
MEADOW charms with an Insta-worthy landscape dotted with warm neutrals and quaint patterns.
The signature program illustrates leading home furnishings trends through an opening day seminar, three curated vignettes, a product tour and an at-Market publication.
